                                     Call for Papers

                           13th International Workshop on
              Coalgebraic Methods in Computer Science (CMCS'16)
                     2 - 3 April 2016, Eindhoven, The Netherlands

Objectives and scope
Established in 1998, the CMCS workshops aim to bring together researchers
with a common interest in the theory of coalgebras, their logics, and their
applications. As the workshop series strives to maintain breadth in its scope,
areas of interest include neighbouring fields as well. Topics of interest
include, but are not limited to, the following:

- The theory of coalgebras (including set theoretic and categorical
- Coalgebras as computational and semantical models (for
    programming languages, dynamical systems, term rewriting, etc.)
- Coalgebras in (functional, object-oriented, concurrent, and constraint)
- Model checking, theorem proving and deductive verification
    using coalgebraic techniques
- Coalgebraic data types, type systems and
    behavioural typing
- Proof principles and (coinductive) definitions for
    coalgebras (e.g. with bisimulations or invariants)
- Coalgebras and algebras
- Coalgebraic specification and verification
- Coalgebras and (modal) logic
- Coalgebra and control theory (notably of discrete event
    and hybrid systems)
- Coalgebra in quantum computing
-  Coalgebra and game theory
- Tools exploiting colgebraic techniques

Venue and event
CMCS'16 will be held in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, co-located with ETAPS 2016 on
2 - 3 April 2016.

Submission guidelines
We solicit two types of contributions: regular papers and short contributions.
Regular papers must be original, unpublished, and not submitted for
publication elsewhere. They should not exceed 20 pages in length in Springer
LNCS style. Short contributions may describe work in progress, or summarise
work submitted to a conference or workshop elsewhere. They should be no more
than two pages. Regular papers and short contributions should be submitted
electronically as a PDF file via the Easychair system at


The proceedings of CMCS 2016 will include all accepted regular papers and
will be published post-conference as a Springer volume in the IFIP-LNCS
series. Accepted short contributions will be bundled in a technical report.
