                    CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: ICTAC 2004
                  Guiyang, China 20 -- 24 September 2004

The First International Colloquium on Theoretical Aspects of Computing 
will be held in Guiyang, the Guizhou Province
China, during 20-24 September 2004.

The technical programme of the colloqium includes workshop during which
four outstanding invited talks, 36 presentations of high quality
papers selected from 111 submissions from over 30 countries and regions. 
For the
detailed programme, please visit


There will be six very good affiliated tutorials on 20 and 21
September 2004. YOU ONLY NEED TO PAY 100 YUAN (12 USD) to attend the 
Information about the tutorial speakers and the abstracts of the 
tutorials are available at

For information about registration, hotel, visa application and social
events, please visit the conference website.


   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.


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

   The proceedings will be available as a UNU-IIST technical report at 
the colloqium.
   It is planned to publish the accepted papers after the conference in 
   full version in the Springer
   Lecture Notes in Computer Science series
