            10th Doctoral Workshop on Mathematical and Engineering

                      Methods in Computer Science

                               MEMICS 2015


                 October 23--25, 2015, Telc, Czech Republic

                             Call for Papers


Since 2005, the aim of MEMICS is to provide a scientific forum for 
doctoral and
master students interested in applications of mathematical and
engineering methods
in computer science. Besides a rich technical programme (including
invited talks,
regular papers, and presentations), MEMICS also offers friendly social
and exciting opportunities for meeting like-minded people.

Topics: MEMICS submissions are traditionally invited from all areas of
science (such as parallel and distributed computing, computer networks,
hardware and its design, non-traditional computing architectures,
systems and databases, multimedia and graphics, verification and
testing, computer
security, as well as all related areas of theoretical computer science).
In line
with the tradition of MEMICS, several areas are, however, given a
special focus
each year (which is reflected, e.g., in the choice of the invited speakers).
In 2015, these areas are:

    * Security and safety
    * Bioinformatics
    * Recommender systems
    * High-performance and cloud computing
    * Non-traditional computational models (quantum computing, etc.)

Nevertheless, as stated above, submissions from any other area of
computer science
are welcome.

Invited talks: There will be 4-6 invited talks by distinguished
researchers from
the different areas of interest of the workshop as a part of the programme:

* Ezio Bartocci (Vienna University of Technology, Austria)
* Siegried Benkner (University of Vienna, Austria)
* Mike Just (Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, Scotland)
* Simone Severini (University College London)
* Natasha Sharygina (University of Lugano, Switzerland)
* Peter Vojtas (Charles University, Czech Republic)

Participation: Students are invited to submit a regular paper or a
A regular paper is a previously unpublished original work, not exceeding
12 pages
in the LNCS style.

Simultaneous submissions of regular papers to other conferences with
is not allowed. A presentation, submitted in the form of a one-page
summarizes recent outstanding work that has been accepted to a leading
science conference or published in a recognised scientific journal.
instructions are available at the web page http://www.memics.cz/.

Depending on their quality, accepted papers will appear either in local
or in a Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) volume dedicated to MEMICS
(post-proceedings). Local proceedings containing accepted regular papers and
presentation abstracts will be available at the workshop in printed and/or
electronic form.

Moreover, a special issue of a journal with an impact factor is planned
for extended
versions of a selection of the best papers published at MEMICS.

Submissions and dates:
All submissions will be handled by the Easychair conference system.

*  July 10, 2015: abstracts of regular papers
*  July 17, 2015: full regular papers
*  August 28, 2015: one-page abstracts of presentations
*  September 8, 2015: notification of acceptance
*  September 15, 2015: final camera-ready versions of all accepted

Venue: The workshop will be held in the historical town of Telc, which
is situated
at the south-west tip of Moravia, half-way between Prague and Vienna.
The historical
centre of the town has retained its unique shape over the centuries and
was included
in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1992:
