          [Appologies if you received multiple copies]

                        Guiyang, China 20 - 24 September 2004

--- It is planned to publish the accepted papers after the conference in
    revised full version in the Springer  Lecture Notes in Computer
    Science series

--- Your submission is an appreciated support to the UNU-IIST
    mission to  help developing countries to advance their
    education and research in computer science

--- The colloquium program will include very 6 good tutorials


The International Institute for Software Technology of the United Nations
University (UNU-IIST) decides to found an International Colloquium on
Theoretical Aspects of Computing (ICTAC). The aim of the colloquium is to
bring together practitioners and researchers from academia, industry and
government to present research results, and exchange experience, ideas,
and solutions for their problems in theoretical aspects of computing. We
believe that this will help the developing countries to strengthen their
research, teaching and development in computer science and engineering, to
improve the links between developing countries and developed countries,
and to establish collaboration in research and education.

The technical program lasts five days including two days for tutorials and
three days for a workshop. We plan to organize such a colloquium every 18
months jointly with a UNU-IIST training school in a developing country,
and each time there will be a theme and a focus.  The school participants
will also attend the technical program of the colloquium. A small
registration fee will be charged to cover meals tutorial handouts and
proceedings only. There will be also a limited amount of grant that
participants, tutorial and workshop speakers from developing countries can
apply. Application should be submitted together with their tutorial
proposals or papers to the workshop. The first ICTAC will be jointly
organized by the Guizhou Academy of Sciences and UNU-IIST during 20-24
September 2004.


ICTAC 2004 calls for tutorials in the areas of theoretical aspects of
computing including automata, languages, software engineering and formal
methods and solicits research papers for the workshop related to, but not
limited to, the following principal topics:

* automata theory and formal languages
* principle and semantics of programming languages
* logics and their applications
* software architectures and their description languages
* formal techniques in MDA
* software specification,  refinement and verification
* model checking and theorem proving
*formal techniques in software testing
* models of object and component system
* coordination and feature interaction
* integration of formal and engineering methods
* service-oriented development
* document-driven development
* models of concurrency, security and mobility
* theory of parallel, distributed and internet-based (Grid) computing
*Boolean satisfiability (SAT)
* real-time and embedded systems
* type and category theory in computer science


Proposals should be approximately five pages and must include the
following information:
* contents including abstract and  syllabus/contents
* duration of the tutorial (2 hours - 6 hours)
* intended audience including prerequisites
* biography of presenter
* any special requirements (e.g., software/hardware for tool   demo,
software/hardware requirements for participants)

Please send proposals (in postscript or PDF format) via email directly to
the Program Chair Zhiming Liu at  lzm at iist.unu.edu.


Submissions to the workshop must not have been published or be
concurrently considered for publication elsewhere. All submissions will be
judged on the basis of originality, contribution to the field, technical
and presentation quality, and relevance to the workshop. It is planned to
publish the accepted papers after the conference in revised full version
in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science series
(http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/index.html) Papers should be written in
English and not exceed 15 pages in LNCS format: see.
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html for details. Further
information and instructions about submissions can be found on the
colloquium website http://www.iist.unu.edu/ICTAC2004. Authors are strongly
encouraged to use this website to submit their papers in electronic form.
