19th International Conference on
Relational and Algebraic Methods in Computer Science

RAMICS 2021 will take place at CIRM close to Marseille from 2 to 5 November 2021.

Since 1994, the RAMiCS conference series has been the main venue for research on relation algebras, Kleene algebras and similar algebraic formalisms, and their applications as conceptual and methodological tools in computer science and beyond.

Theoretical aspects include semigroups, residuated lattices, semirings, Kleene algebras, relation algebras, quantales and other algebras; their connections with program logics and other logics; their use in the theories of automata, concurrency, formal languages, games, networks and programming languages; the development of algebraic, algorithmic, category-theoretic, coalgebraic and proof-theoretic methods for these theories; their formalisation with theorem provers.

Applications include tools and techniques for program correctness, specification and verification; quantitative and qualitative models and semantics of computing systems and processes; algorithm design, automated reasoning, network protocol analysis, social choice, optimisation and control.

RAMICS 2021 will take place at CIRM, the Centre International de Rencontres Mathématiques, at Luminy campus close to Marseille and on the border of the Calanques National Park. There will be no inscriptions fees to the conference, you will only need to care of lodging and catering expenses at CIRM. A limited number of grants, covering both lodging and catering, are being sponsored by CIRM and the Archimède Institute.

Call for papers

Submission is via EasyChair at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ramics2021.

Springer LNCS logo

All papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three referees. The proceedings will be published in an LNCS volume by Springer, ready at the conference. Submissions must not be published or under review for publication elsewhere. Submissions must be in English using a PDF not exceeding 16 pages in LNCS style.

Submissions must provide sufficient information to judge their merits. Additional material may be provided in a clearly marked appendix or by a reference to a manuscript on a web site. Experimental data, software or mathematical components for theorem provers must be available in sufficient detail for referees. Deviation from these requirements may lead to rejection.

One author of each accepted paper is expected to present the paper at the conference. Accepted papers must be produced with LaTeX. Formatting instructions and LNCS style files are available at http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html.

As for earlier RAMiCS conferences, we intend to publish a journal special issue with revised and extended versions of a selection of the best papers.

Call for short contributions/posters

Additionally to the standard CfP, RAMiCS is also calling for short contributions and posters. We are hence calling for presentations of original, unfinished, already published, or otherwise interesting work within the topics of the RAMiCS conferences. The submission can be in the form of a poster, an abstract, a paper submitted to or published at another conference, etc. Short contributions will not be published in the conference proceedings.

Please send your short submission to ramics2021@easychair.org by 29 August 2021.
