Student session


Middle-European Conference on Applied Theoretical Computer Science

Koper, Slovenia, October 12th and 13th, 2016.

The Middle-European Conference on Applied Theoretical Computer Science (MATCOS-16) is held in Koper at the Slovenian Adriatic Coast, 12th and 13th of October, 2016. MATCOS-16 will be held in the frame of the 19th Multi-Conference on Information Society.

Scope and Topics

During the MATCOS-16 conference, a student session is organized for which we invite papers from distinguished MSc students and early stage PhD students pursuing research under the guidance of a supervisor.  Preliminary research results and papers reporting ongoing research are also being sought.

Suggested, but not exclusive, topics of interest include:
- Algorithms and data structures,
- Computational complexity,
- Artificial intelligence, machine learning,
- Optimization, approximation methods, NP-hard problems,
- Graph theory,
- Automata and formal languages, computability,
- Computational geometry.

Special emphasis on use in applications such as simulation, bioinformatics, digital signal and image processing, data compression, logistics etc.

The student session of MATCOS-16 is collocated with the 3rd Student Computer Science Research Conference.
