6th Doctoral Workshop on Mathematical and Engineering
Methods in Computer Science
October 22--24, 2010, Hotel Galant, Mikulov, Czech Republic
Second Call for Papers
The MEMICS 2010 workshop is organized jointly by the Faculty of Information
Technology, Brno University of Technology, and the Faculty of Informatics,
Masaryk University. MEMICS provides a forum for doctoral students
interested in applications of mathematical and engineering methods in
Topics: Submissions are invited especially in the following (though not
exclusive) areas: computer security; software and hardware dependability;
parallel and distributed computing; formal analysis and verification;
simulation; testing and diagnostics; grid computing; computer networks;
modern hardware and its design; non-traditional computing architectures;
quantum computing; as well as all areas of theoretical computer science
underlying the previously mentioned subjects. Moreover, this year, we
specifically invite submissions in computer graphics and vision, signal and
image processing, text and speech processing, human-computer interaction,
especially when related with security or parallel or distributed
Invited talks will be given by Alan Chalmers (Univ. of Warwick, UK) on
`Real Virtuality: High-fidelity multi-sensory virtual environments',
Andreas Steininger (Vienna Univ. of Technology, Austria) on `New approaches
to fault tolerant systems design', Antti Valmari (Tampere Univ. of
Technology, Finland) on `Recent results on DFA minimization and other block
splitting algorithms', and Stefan WÃ¶rz (Univ. of Heidelberg and DKFZ
Heidelberg, Germany) on `Model-based segmentation of biomedical images'.
Students are invited to submit a regular paper or a presentation. A regular
paper is a previously unpublished piece of work with original results, not
exceeding 8 pages in the LNCS style. A presentation reflects recent
outstanding work that has been published (or is accepted for publication)
at a leading computer science conference or in a recognized scientific
journal. Presentations to be included in the programme will be selected on
the basis of a one-page abstract, which will also appear in the
proceedings. For formatting and submission instructions see the detailed
instructions for authors at the workshop's web page. The proceedings will
be available at the workshop in printed form.
Regular paper registration: September 1, 2010
Regular paper and presentation submission: September 8, 2010
Review notification: September 22, 2010

Venue: The workshop will be held in Mikulov, a lovely town near the
Austrian borders at the edge of the Palava Landscape Protected Area.
Mikulov, situated in the centre of vineyard area, is also famous for
numerous examples of architecture. Tourists attractions include the Mikulov
Castle, the Piarist College, the Dietrichstein Sepulchre, and the former
