AIMS AND OBJECTIVES
The International Institute for Software Technology of the United Nations
University (UNU-IIST) decides to found an International Colloquium on
Theoretical Aspects of Computing (ICTAC). The aim of the colloquium is to
bring together practitioners and researchers from academia, industry and
government to present research results, and exchange experience, ideas, and
solutions for their problems in theoretical aspects of computing. We believe
that this will help the developing countries to strengthen their research,
teaching and development in computer science and engineering, to improve the
links between developing countries and developed countries, and to establish
collaboration in research and education.
- It is planned to publish the accepted papers after the conference in
revised full version in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science series
- Your submission is an appreciated support the UNU-IIST (http://www.iist.unu.edu)
mission to help developing countries to advance their education and research
- The colloquium program will include very good tutorials (tutorial proposal
submissions is closed)
The technical program lasts five days including two days for tutorials and
three days for a workshop. We plan to organize such a colloquium every 18
months jointly with a UNU-IIST training school in a developing country, and
each time there will be a theme and a focus. The school participants will
also attend the technical program of the colloquium. A small registration
fee will be charged to cover meals tutorial handouts and proceedings only.
There will be also a limited amount of grant that participants, tutorial and
workshop speakers from developing countries can apply (click here for
more information). Application should be submitted together with their
tutorial proposals or papers to the workshop.
The first ICTAC will be jointly organized by the Guizhou Academy of Sciences
and UNU-IIST during 20-24 September 2004.
