MFCS Symposia

The series of MFCS symposia, organized in rotation by Poland, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic since 1972, has a long and well-established tradition. The symposia encourage high-quality research in all branches of theoretical computer science. Their broad scope provides an opportunity to bring together researchers who do not usually meet at specialized conferences. Quality papers presenting original research on theoretical aspects of computer science are solicited.

As in the last year, Young Researchers Forum will be organized in August 22-24 as an event associated with MFCS:

Principal topics of interest

Algorithmic game theory, algorithmic learning theory, algorithms and data structures (incl. sequential, parallel, distributed, approximation, graph, network, on-line, optimization), automata, grammars and formal languages, bioinformatics, complexity (structural and computational), computational geometry, computer-assisted reasoning, concurrency theory, cryptography and security, databases and knowledge-based systems, formal specifications and program development, foundations of computing, logic in computer science, mobile computing, models of computation, networks (incl. wireless, sensor, ad-hoc), parallel and distributed computing, quantum computing, semantics and verification of programs, theoretical issues in artificial intelligence.

Submission Instructions

Submissions to MFCS must not exceed 12 pages (in Springer-Verlag’s Lecture Notes style and including bibliography). If the authors believe that more details are essential to substantiate the main claims, they may include a clearly marked appendix that will be read at the discretion of the program committee. Simultaneous submissions of papers to any other conference with published proceedings or submitting previously published papers is not allowed. Only electronic submissions in the PDF format are accepted. Detailed information about the submission procedure will be available on the conference web page in due time. The proceedings will be published in the new ARCoSS subline of Lecture Notes in Computer Science by Springer-Verlag.
