                                 36th Conference on
             Current Trends in Theory and Practice of Computer Science
        January 23–29, 2010, Hotel Bedrichov, Špindleruv Mlýn, Czech


SOFSEM (SOFtware SEMinar) is the annual international winter conference
devoted to the theory and practice of computer science.

Its aim is to present the latest developments in research for professionals
from academia and industry, working in leading areas of computer science.

The SOFSEM program consists of Invited Talks by prominent researchers,
Contributed Talks selected by the Program Committee from submitted papers
and the Student Research Forum. SOFSEM is organized in plenary and parallel
tracks, giving a unique opportunity to obtain an excellent overview
of the selected research areas. All tracks are devoted to original research
and leading developments.

SOFSEM is the ideal conference for presenting new results, for scientific
discussions, for establishing personal contacts with colleagues, and
for exchanging ideas. SOFSEM is also well-suited for young computer

SOFSEM 2010 consists of the following 4 tracks:
   * Foundations of Computer Science
       Chair: David Peleg (Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel)
       Co-chair: Anca Muscholl (University of Bordeaux, France)
   * Principles of Software Construction
       Chair: Bernhard Rumpe (RWTH Aachen University, Germany)
   * Data, Knowledge, and Intelligent Systems
       Chair: Jaroslav Pokorný (Charles University in Prague, Czech
   * Web Science

================= DETAIL INFORMATION ========================

Foundations of Computer Science Track

The track is devoted to the recognized core areas of foundational computer
science including the study of algorithms and their complexity, formal
models, languages, programming semantics, and theory of software systems.


Principles of Software Construction

The track is devoted to the application of novel and innovative technologies
and principles to software construction including specification, modeling,
code generation and architectural styles and patterns.


Data, Knowledge, and Intelligent Systems

The track is devoted to the challenges of modeling, storing, and extracting
knowledge from large amounts of data and the theory, design and practice of
(web-)information systems.


Web Science

The track is devoted to novel contributions in understanding, designing and
engineering the technologies, services and applications that make up the
World Wide Web.


Student Research Forum

An integral part of the SOFSEM 2010 will be the Student Research Forum,
organised with the aim to publish and discuss students' projects in the
field of theory and practice of Computer Science. The forum will offer
students the opportunity to receive feedback on both the originality of
their scientific work results and the work in progress. The papers will be
reviewed and selected by SOFSEM 2010 Program Committee. Sufficient space for
discussion and exchange of experience will be provided during the forum
itself and will continue throughout the conference.



The conference is organised by the

  - Institute of Computer Science, Prague, Czech Republic
  - Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University in Prague

    in cooperation with

  - Action M Agency, Prague, Czech Republic

The conference is supported by:

  - Czech Society for Cybernetics and Informatics
  - Slovak Society for Computer Science
