The aim
MEMICS provides a forum for doctoral students interested in applications of mathematical and engineering methods in computer science with an emphasis on methods for developing reliable and secure computer systems. MEMICS in particular includes sessions on verification and dependability, computer security, concurrent and distributed systems, computer networks, modern hardware and non-traditional computing platforms, and related areas of theoretical computer science. Besides a rich technical programme (including invited talks, regular papers, and presentations), MEMICS also offers friendly social activities and exciting opportunities for meeting like-minded people.
Topics
Submissions are invited especially in the following (though not exclusive) areas: software and hardware dependability, computer security, parallel and distributed computing, formal analysis and verification, simulation, testing and diagnostics, GRID computing, computer networks, modern hardware and its design, non-traditional computing architectures, quantum computing, and all related areas of theoretical computer science.
Invited talks
Four invited talks by distinguished researchers from the different areas of interest of the workshop will be a part of the programme:
Involvement
Students are invited to submit a regular paper or a presentation. A regular paper is a previously unpublished piece of work with original results, not exceeding 8 pages in the LNCS style. A presentation reflects recent outstanding work that has been published (or is accepted for publication) at a leading computer science conference or in a recognized scientific journal. Presentations to be included in the programme will be selected on the basis of a one-page abstract, which will also appear in the proceedings. For formatting and submission instructions see the detailed instructions for authors.
Proceedings
The proceedings will be available at the workshop in printed form. Moreover, selected regular papers from MEMICS'09 will be electronically published in the External Workshops series of Dagstuhl DROPS,and a further possibility of publishing some of the papers in an electronic journal is under negotiation.
Venue
The workshop will be held in Znojmo, a beautiful town on the Austrian borders famous for a number of examples of medieval architecture and nearby vineyards. Tourist attractions here include the Gothic Church of St. Nicholas, the town hall's Gothic tower, and the Romanesque rotunda. There is also an ancient castle atop a nearby hill.
