BACKGROUND

ICTAC 2011 is the 8th International Colloquium on Theoretical
Aspects of Computing, the latest in a series founded by the
International Institute for Software Technology of the United
Nations University (UNU-IIST). ICTAC 2011 will bring together
practitioners and researchers from academia, industry and
government to present research and to exchange ideas and
experience addressing challenges in both theoretical aspects of
computing and in the exploitation of theory through methods and
tools for system development. The other main purpose is to
promote cooperation in research and education between participants
and their institutions, from developing and industrial countries,
as in the mandate of the United Nations University.


TOPICS

The topics of the conference include, but are not limited to:

    * automata theory and formal languages;
    * principles and semantics of programming languages;
    * logics and their applications;
    * software architectures and their description languages;
    * software specification, refinement, verification and testing;
    * model checking and theorem proving;
    * formal techniques in software testing;
    * models of object and component systems;
    * coordination and feature interaction;
    * integration of theories, formal methods and tools for
      engineering computing systems;
    * service-oriented development;
    * service-oriented architectures: models and development methods;
    * document-driven development;
    * models of concurrency, security, and mobility;
    * theory of parallel, distributed, and grid computing;
    * real-time, embedded and hybrid systems;
    * type and category theory in computer science;
    * models for learning and education;
    * cognitive architectures;
    * qualitative reasoning;
    * case studies, theories, tools and experiments of verified systems;
    * domain-specific modeling and technology: examples, frameworks
      and experience.

VENUE, TRANSPORTATION AND ACCOMMODATION

The ICTAC 2011 Colloquium will be held in a nature reserve, away from
the bustle and noise of a large city. The reserve is two hours travel
by car from the centre of Johannesburg, in the Waterberg mountains,
situated on 12000 hectares of malaria-free bushveld. All of the big
five can be viewed at the reserve and a game drive will form part of
the social programme for delegates.

Transfers will be provided for delegates from the ICTAC tutorials to
the reserve, and back again to Johannesburg after the event. The reserve
is also easily accessible by self-drive with normal motor cars.

Delegates can additionally arrange to stay on after the colloquium to
relax and enjoy the quiet of the region, or take part in the numerous
adventure activities - such as horse riding, abseiling, and archery.

Accomodation at the reserve is recommended to simplify access during
the event as other lodges are not easy to reach without a hired vehicle.

Travel to Johannesburg is easy from all parts of the world with many
major carriers having multiple departures each day and the availability
of a modern rail link from O. R. Tambo International Airport to hotels
in and around Johannesburg.


PUBLICATION AND SUBMISSION

The proceedings of ICTAC 2011 will be published by Springer
in the series Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) and
will be avaialble at the colloquium. A special issue of a
journal with extended version of selected papers from
ICTAC 2011 is under negotiation.

Submissions to the colloquium must not have been published
or be concurrently considered for publication elsewhere.
All submissions will be judged on the basis of originality,
contribution to the field, technical and presentation quality,
and relevance to the conference. Papers should be written in
English and not exceed 15 pages in LNCS format
(see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html for details).

Papers shall be submitted at
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ictac2011.

All queries should be sent to: ictac2...@iist.unu.edu
