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


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 scientists.

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 Republic)
   * Web Science
       Chair: David De Roure (University of Southampton, United Kingdom)

Moreover, for students, there is the

  * Student Research Forum (SRF)
    SRF Chair: Maria Bielikova (Bratislava)

       Abstracts deadline:           June 23, 2009
       Full papers deadline:         June 30, 2009
       Accepted papers notification: September 15, 2009
       Camera-ready papers:          October 1, 2009
       Conference:                   January 23–29, 2010


The proceedings of SOFSEM 2010 with the invited and contributed papers
will be published in the Springer's series Lecture Notes in Computer
Science, as in the previous years. The proceedings will be distributed
at the conference.


SOFSEM 2010 will be organized in Hotel Bedřichov, Špindlerův Mlýn, a
premier winter resort in Krkonoše (Giant Mountains) about 150 km from

Its beautiful nature is ideal for many winter sport activities and

We are looking forward to seeing you at SOFSEM 2010.

================= 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


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


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
