The CALCO'09 proceedings have been published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series,
We invite submission of technical papers that report results of theoretical work on the mathematics of algebras and coalgebras, the way these results can support methods and techniques for software development, as well as experience with the transition of resulting technologies into industrial practise. We encourage submissions in topics included or related to those in the lists below.
Automata and languages, Categorical semantics, Modal logics, Relational systems, graph transformation, term rewriting, adhesive categories.
Hybrid, probabilistic, and timed systems, Calculi and models of concurrent, distributed, mobile, and context-aware computing, General systems theory and computational models (chemical, biological, etc).
Abstract data types, Inductive and coinductive methods, Re-engineering techniques (program transformation), Semantics of conceptual modelling methods and techniques, Semantics of programming languages.
Algebraic and coalgebraic specification, Formal testing and quality assurance, Validation and verification, Generative programming and model-driven development, Models, correctness and (re)configuration of hardware/middleware/architectures, Process algebra.
Prospective authors are invited to submit full papers in English presenting original research. Submitted papers must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere. Experience papers are welcome, but they must clearly present general lessons learnt that would be of interest and benefit to a broad audience of both researchers and practitioners.
As in 2005 and 2007, we plan to publish the proceedings in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Final papers will be no more than 15 pages long in the format specified by Springer. It is recommended that submissions adhere to that format and length (see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html). Submissions that are clearly too long may be rejected immediately. Proofs omitted due to space limitations may be included in a clearly marked appendix.
A special issue of the new high-quality open access journal Logical Methods in Computer Science, consisting of extended versions of selected papers, will be produced after the conference if there are enough good papers that can be extended and revised to the standards of this journal.
