                 A satellite event of FLoC 2018, Oxford
                          July 8,  2018
========================================================================

Several new models of computation have emerged in the last years, and many 
developments of traditional computation models have been proposed with the aim 
of taking into account the new demands of users of computer systems and the new 
capabilities of computation engines.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers who are currently 
developing new computation models or new features for traditional computation 
models, in order to foster their interaction, to provide a forum for presenting 
new ideas and work in progress, and to enable newcomers to learn about current 
activities in this area. The proceedings are produced after the meeting, so 
that authors can incorporate the workshop feedback in the published papers.

DCM 2018 will take place in Oxford on July 8, as a one-day satellite event of 
FLoC 2018. This will be the 12th event in the series since 2005 - see the DCM 
website (http://dcm-workshop.org.uk/ <http://dcm-workshop.org.uk/>) for details 
of previous events.

INVITED SPEAKERS

We are pleased to announce the two invited speakers of DCM'18:

  *  Ugo Dal Lago  (University of Bologna)
  *  Delia Kesner  (University Paris-Diderot)

TOPICS OF INTEREST

Topics of interest include all abstract models of computation and their 
applications to the development of programming languages and systems. This 
includes (but is not limited to):

  * Functional calculi: lambda-calculus, pattern-calculi, combinatory logic, 
term and graph rewriting;
  * Object calculi;
  * Interaction-based systems: interaction nets, games, agent and multi-agent 
systems;
  * Concurrent models: process calculi, action graphs, distributed systems;
  * Calculi expressing locality, mobility, and active data;
  * Quantum computational models;
  * Biological or chemical models of computation;

SUBMISSION AND PUBLICATION

Authors are invited to submit a short paper (max 8 pages). Preliminary 
proceedings will be available at the workshop. Papers should be written in 
English, and submitted in PostScript or PDF format, using the EPTCS style files 
(http://style.eptcs.org/ <http://style.eptcs.org/>). Submission is through the 
Easychair website.
