SOFSEM 2015 :=
41st International Conference on Current Trends
in Theory and Practice of Computer Science
January 24–29, 2015
Pec pod Sněžkou, Czech Republic
SOFSEM (SOFtware SEMinar) is the annual international winter conference devoted to the theory and practice of computer science. Its aim is to present the latest developments in research for professionals from academia and industry, working in leading areas of computer science. The very first SOFSEM was organized already in 1974. Since 1995 the proceedings containing the invited and contributed papers are regulary published in the series Lecture Notes in Computer Science by Springer Verlag.
The SOFSEM program consists of Invited Talks by prominent researchers, Contributed Talks selected by the Program Committee from submitted papers, Poster Session and the Student Research Forum. SOFSEM is organized in plenary and parallel tracks, giving a unique opportunity to obtain an excellent overview of the selected research areas. All tracks are devoted to original research and leading developments.
Software is the central theme of the SOFSEM conference. This means that next to the traditional strong and popular track on Foundations of Computer Science there are tracks focussed at the production process, the application areas and the social role of Software. These three tracks which represent the How, What and Why issues around software as an ingredient of human civilization whose role is becoming ever more important, are focussed on annually chosen themes. For the 2015 edition these themes are: Software & Web Engineering, Data, Information and Knowledge Engineering, and Cryptography, Securtity, and Verification.
SOFSEM is the ideal conference for discussions, for establishing personal contacts with colleagues, and for exchanging ideas. At SOFSEM 2015 participants and lectures will be accommodated in the Hotel Horizont ****, Pec pod Sněžkou – an attractive winter resort town. SOFSEM is well-known for its familiar and inspiring atmosphere and is especially suited for young computer scientists.
See you at SOFSEM 2015!
