                             ICTCS 2014
    Fifteenth Italian Conference on Theoretical Computer Science
               Perugia, Italy, September 17-19, 2014

     Conference proceedings on  CEUR Workshop Proceedings Series
      Post-conference selection on Theoretical Computer Science


ICTCS-2014, the 2014 Italian Conference on Theoretical Computer Science,
is the 15th conference of the Italian Chapter of EATCS.  It will
be held in Perugia, September 17-19 2014 at the Department of
Mathematics and Computer Science.

The scope of the meeting is fostering the cross-fertilisation of
ideas stemming from different areas of theoretical computer science.
Hence, the Italian Conference on Theoretical Computer Science
represents an occasion for meeting and exchanging ideas and for
sharing experiences between researchers.  It also provides the ideal
environment where junior researchers and PhD students can meet
senior researchers.

Contributions in any area of theoretical computer science are
warmly solicited.  Typical, but not exclusive, topics of interest
include:  agents, algorithms, argumentation,  automata theory,
automated theorem proving, complexity theory, computational logic,
computational social choice, concurrency, cryptography,
distributed computing, dynamical systems, formal methods
game theory, graph theory, knowledge representation,
languages, model checking, process algebras, quantum computing,
rewriting systems, security and trust, semantics,
specification and verification, systems biology, types.

The event is open to both Italian and foreign researchers,
which are welcome to submit papers and attend the Conference.

Important dates:
Submission deadline: 8 June 2014
Notification of acceptance: 15 July 2014
Final version: 10 August 2014
Conference: 17-19 September 2014

Two types of contributions are solicited:

Communications: up to 5 pages in llncs style.
      Suitable for extended abstracts of papers already appeared, or
      submitted, or to be submitted, elsewhere; papers reporting on
      ongoing researches on which the authors wish to get feedback
      at ICTCS and possibly intended to be included in future
      publications; overviews of PhD-theses, research projects, etc...

Regular papers: up to 12 pages in llncs style.
      Full original papers, presenting novel results, not appeared or
      submitted elsewhere.

In case of need, to ease the rewiewing process, the authors of regular
papers may add an appendix containing further material (or indicate
a web site containing longer version of the paper). In any case the

Articles must be written in English and formatted using the
Springer LNCS style (see the details on the conference web site).

Post-conference issue on Theoretical Computer Science:

Selected papers from ICTCS-2014 will be invited to a special issue
of the journal Theoretical Computer Science.
The authors of a selection of the regular papers presented at the
conference will be asked to submit an improved version of their papers.
The selection will be determined by considering the outcome of the
conference reviewing phase.
The papers submitted for the journal issue should have been significantly
revised and extended with respect to the conference versions.
A second reviewing process, meeting the high standard of quality of the
international journal will select the papers to be accepted for the
special issue, among the invited ones.
