ICTAC goes to Cali, Colombia

The organizing committee of ICTAC 2015 has asked me to help them distribute the following CfP of the event. The International Colloquium on Theoretical Aspects of Computing (ICTAC) is going to Colombia this year. The list of invited speakers is superb and Colombia has been a good source of young talent in TCS in recent years. Consider supporting this event by submitting a paper to it.

               CALL FOR PAPERS -- ICTAC 2015
                 12th International Colloquium on 
                 Theoretical Aspects of Computing
               29-31 October 2015, Cali, Colombia
                      ** **


ICTAC 2015 will take place at the campus of Universidad Javeriana, Cali, Colombia during October 29-31, 2015.  The ICTAC conference series aims at bringing together practitioners and researchers to exchange ideas and experiences addressing challenges in theoretical aspects of computing as well as in exploiting theory through methods and tools for system development.  ICTAC also aims to promote cooperation between participants and institutions from developing and industrial countries in research and education.

Topics of interest include theories of computation and programming, foundations of software engineering and formal techniques in software design and verification, as well as  tools that support formal techniques for software modeling, system design and verification.

The topical areas of the conference include, but are not limited to
*     Automata theory and formal languages;
*     Principles and semantics of programming languages;
*     Theories of concurrency, mobility and reconfiguration;
*     Logics and their applications;
*     Software architectures, their models, refinement and verification;
*     Relationship between software requirements, models and code;
*     Program static and dynamic analysis and verification;
*     Software specification, refinement, verification and testing;
*     Model checking and theorem proving;
*     Models of object and component systems;
*     Coordination and feature interaction;
*     Integration of theories, formal methods and tools for engineering computing systems;
*     Service-oriented architectures: models and development methods;
*     Models of concurrency, security, and mobility;
*     Theory of distributed, grid and cloud computing;
*     Real-time, embedded, hybrid and cyber-physical systems;
*     Type and category theory in computer science.
