Call for papers

The Colloquium will be held at the International Institute of Information Technology (IIIT), which is located in Electronics City of Bangalore. It is two hours by car from Bangalore International Airport. Bangalore is internationally known as the Silicon Valley of the East with many hi-tech companies and research labs. Holding the conference in the Electronics City of Bangalore gives the conference participants valuable opportunity to discuss and network with the software practitioners and researchers in India’s Information Technology (IT) hub. This will be further facilitated via an Industry Day, a special feature of ICTAC 2012.


Regular and Short Paper submission deadline: 23 April 2012.

Tool demos paper submission deadline extended to 30 April 2012.


ICTAC 2012 is the 9th International Colloquium on Theoretical Aspects of Computing, the latest in a series founded by the International Institute for Software Technology of the United Nations University (UNU-IIST). ICTAC 2012 will bring together practitioners and researchers from academia, industry and government to present research and to exchange ideas and experience addressing challenges in both theoretical aspects of computing and in the exploitation of theory through methods and tools for system development. The other main purpose is to promote cooperation in research and education between participants and their institutions, from developing and industrial countries, as in the mandate of the United Nations University.



The topics of the conference include, but are not limited to:


IICTAC 2012 will feature an Industry Day, a special feature being introduced to the ICTAC colloquium for the first time. One of the days of the conference is planned to be marked as Industry Day. The industry day will feature technical talks from the industry participants. These talks will be drawn from the papers submitted and accepted to the conference; however any such paper must have at least one co-author from the Industry and must be clearly marked for “Industry Day” during submission. In addition, we plan to have tool demonstrations and posters by the companies in the exhibition floor. Participants from academia will thus also get a chance to mingle with the industry participants in an informal atmosphere, thereby getting a flavor of the ongoing activities in Bangalore’s IT industry.

In addition to research papers, we welcome tool demo papers from industry participants. Proposals for tool demos should be submitted in the same way and in the same format as research papers; a 2-4 page description of the tool is sufficient. Selected tool demos will be scheduled on the industry day. Such submissions should also be marked for "For Industry Day:" in the title during submission.
