International Workshop on Reachability Problems [CFP]

The 11th International Workshop on Reachability Problems (RP'17)

7 - 9 September 2017 | Royal Holloway, University of London, UK |

The 11th Workshop on Reachability Problems will be hosted at Royal Holloway,
University of London. 

The Reachability Workshop is specifically aimed at gathering together scholars
from diverse disciplines interested in reachability problems that appear in
algebraic structures, computational models, hybrid systems, logic and

Invited Speakers:

   Hana Chockler, King's College London
   Laurent Doyen, LSV - ENS Cachan
   Raphaël Jungers, Université catholique de Louvain
   Andreas Podelski, University of Freiburg


Authors are invited to submit a draft of a full paper with at most 12 pages (in
LaTeX, formatted according to LNCS guidelines) via Easychair.  Proofs omitted
due to space constraints must be put into an appendix to be read by the program
committee members at their discretion. Submissions deviating from these
guidelines risk rejection. Electronic submissions should be formatted in pdf.
Simultaneous submission to other conferences or workshops with published
proceedings is not allowed.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to): reachability problems in
infinite state systems, rewriting systems, dynamical and hybrid systems;
reachability problems in logic and verification; reachability analysis in
different computational models, counter timed/cellular/communicating automata;
Petri nets; computational aspects of algebraic structures (semigroups, groups
and rings); frontiers between decidable and undecidable reachability problems;
predictability in iterative maps and new computational paradigms.

Important Dates

   Submission deadline: 10 May 2017 (AoE)
   Notification to authors: 21 June 2017
   Final version: 30 June 2017
   Workshop: 7 - 9 September 2017

Presentation-Only Track

In addition to regular papers that will appear in our LNCS proceedings, we
invite researchers to apply to give a presentation at RP'17 without an
accompanying paper. Such presentations can be based on work that has appeared
(or which is going to appear) in the proceedings of another conference, or which
has not yet been submitted. These contributions will be judged solely on the
basis of their attractiveness to the workshop.

To apply to give such a presentation please submit a PDF file containing a short
abstract (up to two pages) by e-mail [ ] by August 2st
2017, with subject "RP2017 Informal Presentations". This abstract will not be
published in the conference proceedings. Notification for the presentation-only
track will be August 9th 2016.


The Conference Proceedings will be published as the volume of the Springer
Verlag LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) series and distributed at the
Conference. We plan also to publish selected papers in a special issue of a high
quality journal following the regular referee procedure.
