14 International Symposium on
Fundamentals of Computation Theory
Malmo, Sweden, August 12-15, 2003

Invited Speakers:

Sanjeev Arora, Princeton
Christos Papadimitriou, Berkeley
George Paun, Romanian Academy

Scope: Authors are invited to submit papers presenting
original and unpublished research in all areas of theoretical
computer science. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

design and analysis of algorithms, abstract data types, approximation
algorithms, automata and formal languages, categorical and topological
approaches, circuits, computational and structural complexity, circuit
and proof theory, computational geometry, computer systems theory,
concurrency theory, cryptography, domain theory, distributed
algorithms and computation, molecular computation, quantum computation
and information, granular computation, probabilistic computation,
learning theory, rewriting, semantics, logic in computer science,
specification, transformation and verification, algebraic aspects of
computer science.


Authors are invited to submit extended abstracts of their papers,
    presenting original contributions to the theory of computer
    science. All papers should be submitted in electronic form
    (in Postscript) to Andrzej.Lingas@cs.lth.se.

Authors from countries where access to the Internet is difficult should
    contact the chair of the programme committee using the address:
    Andrzej Lingas,
    Department of Computer Science,
    Lund University,
    Box 118,
    SE-221 00 Lund,

Submissions should consist of: a cover page, with the author's full
    name, address, fax number, e-mail address, a 100-word abstract,
    keywords and an extended abstract describing original research.
    Papers should not be exceeding 12 pages in the standard LNCS-style.

Important dates:

Deadline for submission: & February 20, 2003

Proceedings: Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings
of the symposium (Lecture Notes in Computer Science, Springer-Verlag). 
Simultaneous submission to other conferences with published proceedings
is not allowed.

Tradition: The symposium on Fundamentals of Computation Theory  was establi
shed in 1977 as a biennial event for researchers interested in all aspects of theoretical computer science, in particular in algorithms, complexity, and formal and logical methods. The previous FCT conferences were held in the following
cities: Poznan (Poland, 1977), Wendisch-Rietz (Germany, 1979),
Szeged (Hungary, 1981), Borgholm (Sweden, 1983),
Cottbus (Germany, 1985), Kazan (Russia, 1987),
Szeged (Hungary, 1989), Gosen-Berlin (Germany, 1991),
Szeged (Hungary, 1993), Dresden (Germany, 1995),=20
Krakow (Poland, 1997), Iasi (Romania, 1999) and Riga (Latvia, 2001).

The 14-th International Symposium on Fundamentals of Computation Theory is
organized jointly by Lund University and Malmo Hogskolan.
