Middle-European Conference on Applied Theoretical Computer Science
(MATCOS-19)

Koper, Slovenia, October 10th and 11th, 2019.

Held in conjunction with the 22nd Multi-Conference on Information Society, October 7th-11th, 2019, Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Scope and Topics

During the past years, other fields have used several subjects, methods and approaches of Theoretical Computer Science, and several results have been integrated into practical applications. Solutions for NP-hard problems, algorithmic-oriented AI and data science, new models and methods in system biology and bioinformatics, automata theory approaches in software and hardware verification, practical quantum computing solutions and the development of other prospective new models of computation are good examples to buttress the above statement.

We set double aims as the scope of this conference: on one hand side we expect ideas and solutions from the field of Theoretical Computer Science which have been directly applied in real world applications. On the other side we want to collect theoretical results based on some fruitful idea that may be useful to adopt for practical problems.

Suggested, but not exclusive, topics of interest include:

  • Automata and formal languages, computability,
  • Algorithms and data structures,
  • Computational complexity,
  • Artificial intelligence, machine learning,
  • Optimization, approximation methods, NP-hard problems,
  • Graph theory,
  • Computational geometry.

There is a special emphasis on use in applications such as simulation, bioinformatics, digital signal and image processing, data science, digital forensics, logistics, smart homes/cities and IoT etc.

Paper submission

Papers presenting original research in conference topics are being sought. Papers must be in English and provide sufficient details to allow the program committee to assess their merits. Submissions, as well as final versions, are limited to 4 pages sharp and will be published in an Information Society multiconference proceeding. Revised and extended versions of selected papers will appear in a special issue of the journal Informatica (http://www.informatica.si/). Instructions for preparing the papers can be downloaded from Conference Website.

Only electronic submissions will be accepted (in pdf format), via EasyChair:
