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.
MEMICS submissions are traditionally invited from all areas of computer science (such as parallel and distributed computing, computer networks, modern hardware and its design, non-traditional computing architectures, information systems and databases, multimedia and graphics, verification and testing, computer security, as well as all related areas of theoretical computer science). In line with the tradition of MEMICS, several areas are, however, given a special focus each year (which is reflected, e.g., in the choice of the invited speakers). In 2015, these areas are:
Nevertheless, as stated above, submissions from any other area of computer science are welcome.
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 A regular paper is a previously unpublished original work, not exceeding 12 pages in the LNCS style. Simultaneous submissions of regular papers to other conferences with proceedings is not allowed. A presentation, submitted in the form of a one-page abstract, summarizes recent outstanding work that has been accepted to a leading computer science conference or published in a recognized scientific journal.
Depending on their quality, accepted papers will appear either in local procedings, or in LNCS post-proceedings. The decision will be taken by MEMICS 2015 PC during the evaluation process. The authors will be informed about the decision in the notification letter. Local proceedings containing accepted regular papers and presentation abstracts will be available at the workshop in printed and/or electronic form. Moreover, a special issue of a journal with an impact factor is planned for extended versions of a selection of the best papers published at MEMICS.
