[Apologies for multiple copies] !!! Please forward to PhD students and young researchers !!! =============================================================== SECOND CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS: CALCO-Jnr 2011 CALCO Young Researchers Workshop August 29, 2011, Winchester, UK part of 4th Conference on Algebra and Coalgebra in Computer Science August 29-September 2, 2011, Winchester, UK =============================================================== Abstract submission: May 8, 2011 Author notification: May 30, 2011 Final abstract due: June 30, 2011 Full paper submission: September 30, 2011 =============================================================== http://calco2011.ecs.soton.ac.uk/ =============================================================== CALCO 2011 will be preceded by the CALCO Young Researchers Workshop, CALCO-Jnr, dedicated to presentations by PhD students and by those who completed their doctoral studies within the past few years. CALCO aims to bring together researchers and practitioners with interests in foundational aspects, and both traditional and emerging uses of algebras and coalgebras in computer science. The study of algebra and coalgebra relates to the data, process and structural aspects of software systems. This is a high-level, bi-annual conference formed by joining the forces and reputations of CMCS (the International Workshop on Coalgebraic Methods in Computer Science), and WADT (the Workshop on Algebraic Development Techniques). Previous CALCO editions took place in Swansea (Wales, 2005), Bergen (Norway, 2007) and Udine (Italy, 2009). The fourth edition will be held in the city of Winchester (England), a historic cathedral city and the ancient capital of Wessex and the Kingdom of England. The CALCO Young Researchers Workshop, CALCO-Jnr, is a CALCO satellite workshop dedicated to presentations by PhD students and young researchers. Attendance at the workshop is open to all - it is anticipated that many CALCO conference participants will want to attend the CALCO-Jnr workshop (and vice versa). Topics of Interest ----------------------- The CALCO Young Researchers Workshop invites submissions on the same topics as the CALCO conference: reporting results of theoretical work on the mathematics of algebras and coalgebras, the way these results can support methods and techniques for software development, as well as experience with the transfer of the resulting technologies into industrial practice. In particular, the workshop encourages submissions related to the topics listed below. * Abstract models and logics - Automata and languages, - Categorical semantics, - Modal logics, - Relational systems, - Graph transformation, - Term rewriting, - Adhesive categories * Specialised models and calculi - Hybrid, probabilistic, and timed systems, - Calculi and models of concurrent, distributed, mobile, and context-aware computing, - General systems theory and computational models (chemical, biological, etc) * Algebraic and coalgebraic semantics - Abstract data types, - Inductive and coinductive methods, - Re-engineering techniques (program transformation), - Semantics of conceptual modelling methods and techniques, - Semantics of programming languages * System specification and verification - Algebraic and coalgebraic specification, - Formal testing and quality assurance, - Validation and verification, - Generative programming and model-driven development, - Models, correctness and (re)configuration of hardware/middleware/architectures, - Process algebra Submission ---------------- CALCO-Jnr presentations will be selected according to originality, significance, and general interest, on the basis of submitted 2-page abstracts. A booklet with the abstracts of the accepted presentations will be available at the workshop. Submissions will be handled via the EasyChair system (http://www.easychair.org). The use of LNCS style (see http://www.springer.de/compo/lncs/authors.html) is strongly encouraged. After the workshop, the author(s) of each presentation will be invited to submit a full 10-15 page paper on the same topic. They will also be asked to write (anonymous) reviews of papers submitted by other authors on related topics. Additional reviewing and the final selection of papers will be carried out by the CALCO-Jnr PC. The volume of selected papers from the workshop will be published as a technical report of the University of Southampton. Authors will retain copyright, and are also encouraged to disseminate the results reported at CALCO-Jnr by subsequent publication elsewhere.
