		      Call for Organisers - ICTAC 2017
 International Colloquium on Theoretical Aspects of Computing (ICTAC)

Background and Objectives

The International Colloquium on Theoretical Aspects of Computing
(ICTAC) was founded in 2004 by the International Institute for
Software Technology of the United Nations University (UNU-IIST).
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. Beyond these
scholarly goals, another main purpose of the conference is to
promote cooperation in research and education between participants
and their institutions, from developing and industrial countries.

The event takes place every year in a developing country. Each
conference attracts between 50 and 100 participants from all over
the world. We now invite proposals from any group or institution
wishing to host this event. The priority is for the event to be
located in a developing country. It usually combines a regular
three-day scientific conference with related activities such as
tutorials over another two-days and a summer school over the
previous week. Innovation in the format and content is encouraged.

Proposals will be evaluated by the ICTAC steering committee.

Proposal Format and Submission

Proposals should be no more than four pages in length and should contain:
    * Brief description of why the event is of interest to the proposer.
    * Vision for the event, including its aims, the expected format and scale.
    * An estimation of expected attendance, based, for example, on presence
      of a local community in the area and costs of travel to various parts
      of the world and local expenses.
    * A description of the relevant qualifications and experience of the
      proposers, especially regarding conference organisation logistics.
    * A description of the facilities that will be available for the event
      and to support the organizers.
    * The contact information of the proposed organising committee. Please,
      note that the choice of a PC chair will be subject to later discussion
      with the Steering Committee and should not be part of this proposal.
Please send your proposal (in PDF format) and any enquiries to ictac at cs.york.ac.uk.
