8th International Conference on Mathematical Aspects of Computer and Information Sciences (MACIS)

Nov 13-15
AIT is Co-Organizer of the (MACIS) which will take place in Gebze/Istanbul (Turkey) on 13-15 November 2019. This is a Call for Papers!

MACIS is a series of biennial conferences focusing on research in mathematical and computational aspects of computing and information science.
It is broadly concerned with algorithms, their complexity and their embedding in larger logical systems.
At the algorithmic level, there is the rich interplay along the Numerical/Algebraic/Geometric/Topological axes.
At the logical level, there are issues of data organization, interpretation and associated tools.
These issues often arise in scientific and engineering computation where we need experimental and case studies to validate or enrich the theory.
MACIS is interested in outstanding and emerging problems in all these areas.
Previously MACIS was held in Vienna (2017), Berlin (2015), Nanning (2013), Beijing (2011), Fukuoka (2009), Paris (2007) and Beijing 2006.

List of Tracks

  • T1: Algorithms and Foundations
  • T2: Security/Cryptography
  • T3: Combinatorics/Codes/Designs/Graphs
  • T4: Data Modeling/Machine Learning

For more details on the corresponding topics, please see our webpage at http://macis2019.gtu.edu.tr.

Submission Guidelines

All papers must be original, written in English, and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. Papers on experimental work and work-in-progress are welcome.

There are four categories of papers:

  • Short papers: up to 5 pages including references,
  • Regular papers: up to 15 pages including references,
  • Software and Tools papers: up to 5 pages, present novel ways of using software/tools for solving problems in areas related to MACIS
  • Early Stage Researcher (ESR) papers: up to 15 pages including references, all authors must be ESR (students or at most 2 years after their PhD).

Short and regular papers must be submitted in one of the four main tracks of MACIS (see above). Early Stage Researcher (ESR) papers and Software and Tools papers will be presented in separate sessions.

The paper title must be tagged with the category of the paper and the corresponding track (T1,T2,T3 or T4) for short and regular papers, e.g., "SHORT-T1: ...title..." , "REGULAR-T1: ...title...", "SOFTWARE: ...title..." or "ESR: ...title...".

Please use the LNCS format from Springer to prepare your submission. All submissions must be done through easychair at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=macis2019

Important Dates

Submission opens on June 15, 2019.

  • Submission deadline: August 20, 2019
  • Notification of acceptance: October 10, 2019

Note: SHORT and ESR papers are evaluated on a rolling basis.
