- Background and Objectives
- ICTAC is an International Colloquium on Theoretical Aspects of
Computing created by the International Institute for Software
Technology of the United Nations University~(UNU-IIST). 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. Beyond these scholarly goals,
another main purpose of the conference is to promote cooperation in
research and education between participants and their institutions,
from developing and industrial countries, as in the mandate of the
United Nations University. The previous two ICTAC events were held in
2004, in Guiyang, China, and in 2005, in Hanoi, Vietnam.
- The topics of the conference include, but are not limited to:
- automata theory and formal languages
- principles and semantics of programming languages
- logics and their applications
- software architectures and their description languages
- software specification, refinement, and verification
- model checking and theorem proving
- formal techniques in software testing
- models of object and component systems
- coordination and feature interaction
- integration of formal and engineering methods
- service-oriented development
- document-driven development
- models of concurrency, security, and mobility
- theory of parallel, distributed, and internet-based (grid) computing
- real-time and embedded systems
- type and category theory in computer science
ICTAC'06 will have a technical program for five days
including two days for tutorials and three days for a conference.
There will also be a training school in the preceding week.
