   5th International Conference on Graph Transformation (ICGT 2010)
           University of Twente, Enschede, The Netherlands
                   29 September - 1 October 2010
                          Call for Papers

The 5th  International Conference on Graph  Transformation  (ICGT 2010) will be
held at the University of Twente in Enschede (The Netherlands) in the last week
of  September 2010.  It continues the  line  of conferences  previously held in
Barcelona  (Spain) in 2002,  Rome (Italy) in 2004,  Natal (Brazil)  in 2006 and
Leicester (UK) in 2008, as  well as a  series of six International Workshops on
Graph Transformation with  Applications  in Computer  Science between 1978  and
1998.  The conference takes place under the auspices  of EATCS, EASST, and IFIP
WG 1.3. Awards  will be given by  EATCS and EASST  for the best theoretical and
application-oriented  papers. Proceedings  are planned with  Springer's Lecture
Notes in Computer Science series.

ICGT 2010  will  be colocated with the  SPIN  2010 workshop on  Software  Model
Checking, and will also host several satellite events.

Invited Speakers

We are pleased to announce the following invited speakers:

- Javier Esparza, University of Munich (joint keynote speaker with SPIN 2010)
- Krzysztof Czarnecki, University of Waterloo
- Christoph Brandt, University of Luxembourg


Graphs are among  the  simplest and most  universal models   for a  variety  of
systems, not just in computer science,  but throughout engineering and the life
sciences. When  systems evolve we are  interested  in the  way  they change, to
predict, support, or  react to their  evolution. Graph transformation  combines
the idea of graphs as a universal modelling paradigm with a rule-based approach
to specify evolution.  The area  is concerned  with both  the theory of   graph
transformation and their application to a variety of domains.

The   conference aims at     bringing  together researchers and   practitioners
interested  in  the foundations  and application  of  graph transformation to a
variety of areas. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to

    * Foundations and theory of
          o General models of graph transformation
          o High-level and adhesive replacement systems
          o Node-, edge-, and hyperedge replacement grammars
          o Parallel, concurrent, and distributed graph transformation
          o Term graph rewriting
          o Hierarchical graphs and decompositions of graphs
          o Graph theoretical properties of graph languages
          o Geometrical and topological aspects of graph transformation
          o Automata on graphs and parsing of graph languages
          o Analysis and verification of graph transformation systems
          o Structuring and modularization concepts for transformation systems
          o Graph transformation and Petri nets

    * Languages, tool support and applications in
          o Software architecture
          o Workflows and business processes
          o Software quality, testing and evolution
          o Access control and security models
          o Aspect-oriented development
          o Model-driven development, especially model transformations
          o Domain-specific languages
          o Implementation of programming languages
          o Bioinformatics and system biology
          o Natural computing
          o Image generation and pattern recognition techniques
          o Massively parallel computing
          o Self-adaptive systems and ubiquitous computing
          o Service-oriented applications and semantic web

Paper  submission is   at  http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icgt2010.
Submitted papers  may  not exceed   fifteen  (15) pages using  Springer's  LNCS
format, and should contain original research.  Simultaneous submission to other
conferences with proceedings  or submission of  material that has already  been
published elsewhere is not allowed.

Selected papers  will be invited for submission to special issues of Fundamenta
Informaticae  (for  theoretically  oriented  papers)  and  Software and Systems
Modeling (for application-oriented papers).

The University  of  Twente is  located in a  beautiful  green area between  the
cities of Hengelo and Enschede, in the eastern  part of The Netherlands. It has
good connections to the airports  of Schiphol (Amsterdam, The Netherlands)  and
Münster  (Germany). The main town,  Enschede, lies directly on the Dutch/German
border, and it is a characteristic,  modern and lively university town. Elegant
historic buildings in the town and surrounding area are evocative of Enschede's
rich textile past. Some of the town's most  notable monuments are the beautiful
town hall, several beautiful churches and a unique synagogue.

The University of  Twente is  an  entrepreneurial research university.  It  was
founded in 1961 and offers education and  research in areas ranging from public
policy studies  and applied physics  to biomedical  technology.  The UT  is the
Netherlands' only campus university. It counts in the order of 10,000 students.
