                                                CALL FOR CONTRIBUTION: ICTAC 2004
                                                Guiyang, China 20 - 24 September 2004


The International Institute for Software Technology of the United
Nations University (UNU-IIST) decides to found an International
Colloquium on Theoretical Aspects of Computing (ICTAC). The aim of the
colloquium is to bring together practitioners and researchers from
academia, industry and government to present research results, and
exchange experience, ideas, and solutions for their problems in
theoretical aspects of computing. We believe that this will help the
developing countries to strengthen their research, teaching and
development in computer science and engineering, to improve the links
between developing countries and developed countries, and to establish
collaboration in research and education.

The technical program lasts five days including two days for tutorials
and three days for a workshop. We plan to organize such a colloquium
every 18 months jointly with a UNU-IIST training school in a
developing country, and each time there will be a theme and a focus.
The school participants will also attend the technical program of the
colloquium. A small registration fee will be charged to cover meals
tutorial handouts and proceedings only. There will be also a limited
amount of grant that participants, tutorial and workshop speakers from
developing countries can apply. Application should be submitted
together with their tutorial proposals or papers to the workshop. The
first ICTAC will be jointly organized by the Guizhou Academy of
Sciences and UNU-IIST during 20-24 September 2004.


ICTAC 2004 calls for tutorials in the areas of theoretical aspects of
computing including automata, languages, software engineering and
formal methods and solicits research papers for the workshop related
to, but not limited to, the following principal topics:

* automata theory and formal languages
* principle and semantics of programming languages
* logics and their applications
* software architectures and their description languages
* formal techniques in MDA
* software specification, refinement and verification
* model checking and theorem proving
*formal techniques in software testing
* models of object and component system
* coordination and feature interaction
* integration of formal and engineering methods
* service-oriented development
* document-driven development
* models of concurrency, security and mobility
* theory of parallel, distributed and internet-based (Grid) computing
* real-time and embedded systems
* type and category theory in computer science


Proposals should be approximately five pages and must include the following information:
* contents including abstract and syllabus/contents
* duration of the tutorial (2 hours ¨C 6 hours)
* intended audience including prerequisites
* biography of presenter
* any special requirements (e.g., software/hardware for tool demo, software/hardware
    requirements for participants)

Please send proposals (in postscript or PDF format) via email directly
to the Program Chair Zhiming Liu at SUBMISSIONS TO
THE WORKSHOP Submissions to the workshop 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
workshop. The ICTAC 2004 Program Committee selects original technical
papers for publication in the proceedings of the workshop and
envisages published the proceedings after the workshop by Springer in
its Lecturer Notes in Computer Science series. Papers should be
written in English and not exceed 15 pages in LNCS format:
see. for
details. Further information and instructions about submissions can be
found on the colloquium website Authors are strongly encouraged to
use this website to submit their papers in electronic form.
