MEMICS in Brief

The aim
MEMICS provides a forum for doctoral students interested in applications of mathematical and engineering methods in 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.
The scope of MEMICS is broad and covers many fields of computer science and engineering. In the year 2012, submissions are especially encouraged in the following six areas:
For each of these topics, the MEMICS 2012 programme includes an invited talk delivered by a leading expert.
Submissions are, however, invited also in other areas of computer science and engineering. The main acceptance criterion is the quality and attractiveness of the submitted papers.
There are two types of submissions: regular papers and presentations. All submissions should be (co-)authored by PhD students who are expected to present the results at the workshops.
A regular paper is a previously unpublished piece of work with original results, not exceeding 12 pages in the LNCS style. Depending on their quality, accepted papers will appear either in local procedings distributed at the conference, or in LNCS post-proceedings. The decision will be taken by MEMICS 2012 PC during the evaluation process. The authors will be informed about the decision in the notification letter.
A presentation reflects a recent outstanding work that has been published (or is accepted for publication) at a leading computer science conference or in a recognized 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 local proceedings.
For formatting and submission instructions see the detailed instructions for authors.
The best regular papers, selected by MEMICS 2012 PC co-chairs during the workshop, will be awarded (the award includes a certificate and some amount of money).
