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 2016, these areas are:
Nevertheless, as stated above, submissions from any other area of computer science are welcome.
Students are invited to submit A regular paper is a previously unpublished original work, not exceeding 12 pages in the LNCS style.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 are 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 recognised scientific journal. A poster presents an ongoing work. Please consult Instructions for authors before submission.
Journal post-proceedings are currently under negotiation. Local proceedings containing accepted regular papers and presentation abstracts will be available at the workshop in printed and/or electronic form.
