Call for Papers
MEMICS provides a forum for doctoral students interested in applications of
mathematical and engineering methods in computer science with an emphasis on
methods for developing reliable and secure computer systems. MEMICS in
particular includes sessions on verification and dependability, computer
security, concurrent and distributed systems, computer networks, modern
hardware and non-traditional computing platforms, and related areas of
theoretical computer science. Besides a rich technical programme
(including invited talks
, regular papers, and
presentations), MEMICS also offers friendly social activities
opportunities for meeting like-minded people.
Submissions are invited especially in the following (though not exclusive)
areas: software and hardware dependability, computer security, parallel and
distributed computing, formal analysis and verification, simulation, testing
and diagnostics, GRID computing, computer networks, modern hardware and its
design, non-traditional computing architectures, quantum computing, and all
related areas of theoretical computer science.
Four invited talks by distinguished researchers from the
different areas of interest of the workshop will be a part of the programme:
- Mikolaj Bojanczyk (University of Warsaw, Poland):
Automata for XML.
- Michael Fellows (University of Newcastle, Australia):
The Lost Continent of Polynomial Time: Meta-theorems About FPT
- GĂźnther Raidl (Vienna University of Technology, Austria):
Combining Metaheuristics with Mathematical Programming Techniques for
Solving Difficult Network Design Problems.
- Andrey Rybalchenko (Max Planck Institute for Software Systems, Germany):
Automated methods for proving program safety and liveness.
Students are invited to submit a regular paper
. A regular paper is a previously unpublished
piece of work with original results, not
exceeding 8 pages in the LNCS style. A presentation reflects recent
outstanding work that has been published (or is accepted for publication) at
a leading computer science conference or in a recognized scientific journal.
Presentations to be included in the programme will be selected on the basis
of a one-page abstract, which will also appear in the proceedings. For
formatting and submission instructions see the detailed instructions for
The proceedings will be available at the workshop in printed form.
Moreover, selected regular papers from MEMICS'09 will be electronically
published in the External Workshops series of Dagstuhl
,and a further
possibility of publishing some of the papers in an electronic journal is under
The workshop will be held in Znojmo, a beautiful town on the Austrian borders
famous for a number of examples of medieval architecture and nearby
vineyards. Tourist attractions here include the Gothic Church of St. Nicholas,
the town hall's Gothic tower, and the Romanesque rotunda. There is also an
ancient castle atop a nearby hill.
