FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS
11th International Conference on Mathematics of Program Construction (MPC 2012)
Madrid, Spain, 25-27 June 2012
The biennial MPC conferences aim to promote the development of mathematical principles and techniques that are demonstrably practical and effective in the process of constructing computer programs, broadly interpreted.
The 2012 MPC conference will be held in Madrid, Spain, from 25th to 27th June 2012. The previous conferences were held in Twente, The Netherlands (1989), Oxford, UK (1992), Kloster Irsee, Germany (1995), Marstrand, Sweden (1998), Ponte de Lima, Portugal (2000), Dagstuhl, Germany (2002), Stirling, UK (2004, colocated with AMAST), Kuressaare, Estonia (2006, colocated with AMAST), Marseille, France (2008), and Québec City, Canada (2010, colocated with AMAST).
Papers are solicited on mathematical methods and tools put to use in program construction. Topics of interest range from algorithmics to support for program construction in programming languages and systems. The notion of "program" is broad, from algorithms to hardware. Some typical areas are type systems, program analysis and transformation, programming-language semantics, security, and program logics. Theoretical contributions are welcome, provided that their relevance to program construction is clear. Reports on applications are welcome, provided that their mathematical basis is evident.
To be arranged.
* Submission of abstracts 09 January 2012
* Submission of full papers 16 January 2012
* Notification to authors: 19 March 2012
* Final version: 16 April 2012
Submission is in two stages. Abstracts (plain text, 10 to 20 lines) must be submitted by 09 January 2012. Full papers (pdf) adhering to the LaTeX llncs style must be submitted by 16 January 2012. There is no official page limit, but authors should strive for brevity. The web-based system EasyChair will be used for submission (http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mpc2012).
Papers must report previously unpublished work, and not be submitted concurrently to another conference with refereed proceedings. Accepted papers must be presented at the conference by one of the authors. Please feel free to write to mpc2012 at easychair.org with any questions about academic matters.
The proceedings of MPC 2012 will be published in Springer-Verlag's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series, as have all the previous editions. Authors of accepted papers will be expected to transfer copyright to Springer for this purpose. After the conference, we plan that the authors of the best papers will be invited to submit revised versions to a special issue of the Elsevier journal Science of Computer Programming.
