==================================================ICTAC 20129th
International Colloquium on Theoretical Aspects of ComputingURL:
http://www.iiitb.ac.in/ictac24 - 27 September 2012, Bangalore,
The Colloquium will be held at the International Institute
ofInformation Technology (IIIT), which is located in Electronics City
ofBangalore. It is two hours by car or taxi from Bangalore
InternationalAirport. Bangalore is internationally known as the
Silicon Valley ofIndia, with many hi-tech companies and research labs.
Holding theconference in the Electronics City of Bangalore gives the
conferenceparticipants valuable opportunity to discuss and network
with thesoftware practitioners and researchers in India's
InformationTechnology (IT) hub. This will be further facilitated via
an IndustryDay, a special feature of ICTAC 2012.

SUBMISSION DEADLINE--------------------------------------------------Regular
and Short Paper submission deadline: 16 April 2012

BACKGROUND-------------------------------------------------ICTAC 2012
is the 9th International Colloquium on Theoretical Aspectsof
Computing, the latest in a series founded by the
InternationalInstitute for Software Technology of the United Nations
University(UNU-IIST). ICTAC 2012 will bring together practitioners
andresearchers from academia, industry and government to present
researchand to exchange ideas and experience addressing challenges in
boththeoretical aspects of computing and in the exploitation of
theorythrough methods and tools for system development. The other
mainpurpose is to promote cooperation in research and education
betweenparticipants and their institutions, from developing and
industrialcountries, as in the mandate of the United Nations

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;  * relationship between software
requirements, models and code;  * 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 architectures: models and
development methods;  * models of concurrency, security, and mobility;
 * theory of parallel, distributed, grid and cloud computing;  *
real-time, embedded, hybrid and cyber-physical systems;  * type and
category theory in computer science;  * models for learning and
education;  * case studies, theories, tools and experiments of
verified systems;  * domain-specific modeling and technology:
examples, frameworks    and experience.

INDUSTRY DAY-------------------------------------------------ICTAC
2012 will feature an Industry Day, a special feature beingintroduced
to the ICTAC colloquium for the first time. One of the daysof the
conference is planned to be marked as Industry Day. Theindustry day
will feature technical talks from the industryparticipants. These
talks will be drawn from the papers submitted andaccepted to the
conference; however any such paper must have at leastone co-author
from the Industry and must be clearly marked for`Industry Day' during
submission. In addition, we plan to have tooldemonstrations and
posters by the companies in the exhibitionfloor. Participants from
academia will thus also get a chance tomingle with the industry
participants in an informal atmosphere,thereby getting a flavor of the
ongoing activities in Bangalore's ITindustry.
Industry Day Co-chairs:  * Sriram Rajamani (Microsoft Research)  *
Satish Chandra (IBM Research)

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS-------------------------------------------------  *
Gernot Heiser, UNSW (for Industry Day)  * Luke Ong, Oxford  * Ganesan

proceedings of ICTAC 2012 will be published by Springer in theseries
Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) and will be availableat the
colloquium. A special issue of a journal with extended versionof
selected papers from ICTAC 2012 is under negotiation.  Submissionsto
the colloquium must not have been published or be
concurrentlyconsidered for publication elsewhere.  All submissions
will be judgedon the basis of originality, contribution to the field,
technical andpresentation quality, and relevance to the conference.
Submissionscan be either Regular Papers or Short Papers.  Short papers
canpresent recent or ongoing work or discuss new ideas which are at
anearly stage of development and have not been thoroughly evaluated
yet.Papers should be written in English. Regular Papers should not
exceed15 pages and Short Papers should be between 4 and 8 pages in
LNCSformat (see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html
