MEMICS in Brief
The aim
MEMICS provides a forum for doctoral students interested in applications of mathematical and engineering methods in computer science with a special focus on the various aspects of parallel and distributed systems. Besides technical programme (including invited talks, regular papers and presentations), it offers also plentiful social activities and exciting opportunities for relating to like-minded people.
Submissions are invited especially in the following (but not exclusive) areas: parallel and distributed computing, GRID computing, computer networks and applications, computer security, theory of formal languages, formal verification, simulation, software and hardware testing and dependability, computer architectures, quantum computing.
Invited talks
Several invited talks by distinguished researchers from the different areas of interest of the workshop will be a part of the programme.
Students are invited to submit a regular paper not exceeding 8 pages in the LNCS style. Detailed instructions are available at the submission page. Students may also participate with a presentation of their recent outstanding work, if it has been (or will be) presented at a leading computer science conference. Presentations to be included in the programme will be selected on the basis of a one-page abstract, which interested students are invited to submit.
