                    FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS

               8th International Conference on 
             Mathematics of Program Construction
                           MPC '06

                   colocated with AMAST '06

             Kuressaare, Estonia,  3-5 July 2006



The biennial MPC conferences aim to promote the development of
mathematical principles and techniques that are demonstrably useful
and usable in the process of constructing computer programs. Topics of
interest range from algorithmics to support for program construction
in programming languages and systems.

The previous conferences were held in Twente, The Netherlands (1989),
Oxford, UK (1992), Kloster Irsee, Germany (1995), Marstrand, Sweden
(1998), Ponte de Lima, Portugal (2000), Dagstuhl, Germany (2002) and
Stirling, UK (2004, colocated with AMAST '04). The 2006 conference
will be held at Kuressaare, Estonia, colocated with AMAST '06.

Kuressaare (pop. 16000) is the main town on Saaremaa, the
second-largest island of the Baltic Sea. Kuressaare is a charming
seaside resort on the shores of the Gulf of Riga highly popular with
Estonians as well as visitors to Estonia.

The scientific sessions of MPC/AMAST 2006 will take place at Saaremaa
Spa Hotel Meri, one among the several new spa hotels in the town. The
social events will involve a number of sites, including the
14th-century episcopal castle. Accommodation will be at Saaremaa Spa
Hotels Meri and Rüütli.

To get to Kuressaare and away, one must pass through Tallinn
(pop. 402000), Estonia's capital city. Tallinn is famous for its
picturesque medieval Old Town, inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage
