 Abstract Registration:      May 1, 2017 (AoE)
 Paper Submission:           May 6, 2017 (AoE)
 Notification to authors:    June 16, 2017
 Camera-ready submission:    June 28, 2017
 Symposium:                  September 11-13, 2017


 The Symposium on Fundamentals of Computation Theory (FCT) was established in
 1977 for researchers interested in all aspects of theoretical computer science,
 and in particular algorithms, complexity, formal and logical methods. FCT is a
 biennial conference. The last preceding Symposia were held in Gdansk, Liverpool,
 Oslo, Wroc??aw, Budapest, L??beck.

 FCT 2017 will take place in Bordeaux, France. Bordeaux is located in the South West
 of France. The region is famous for its wines and its gastronomy. The city centre
 of Bordeaux is classified at the Unesco World Heritage.


 The program committee is soliciting original and significant research
 contributions to the Fundamentals of Computation Theory, including (but
 not limited to):


 - algorithm design and optimization
 - approximation, randomized, and heuristic methods
 - circuits and boolean functions
 - combinatorics and analysis of algorithms
 - computational algebra
 - computational and parameterized complexity
 - computational geometry
 - distributed and parallel computing
 - online algorithms
 - streaming algorithms

 Formal methods:

 - algebraic and categorical methods
 - automata and formal languages
 - computability and nonstandard computing models
 - database theory
 - foundations of concurrency and distributed systems
 - logic and model checking
 - models of reactive, hybrid and stochastic systems
 - principles of programming languages
 - program analysis and transformation
 - security
 - specification, refinement and verification
 - type systems

 Emerging fields:

 - ad hoc, dynamic and evolving systems
 - algorithmic game theory
 - computational biology
 - foundations of cloud computing and ubiquitous systems
 - quantum information and quantum computing


 Conference proceedings will be published in the ARCoSS subline of the
 Springer "Lecture Notes in Computer Science" series.


 Selected papers will be invited to a special issue of the "Journal of
 Computer and System Sciences", devoted to FCT 2017.


 Awards will be given to the best paper and the best student paper. To be
 eligible for the best student paper award, at least one of the paper authors
 must be a full-time student at the time of submission, and the student(s)
 must have made a significant contribution to the paper.


 Authors are invited to submit high-quality manuscripts reporting original
 unpublished research in the topics related to the symposium. Simultaneous
 submission to other conferences or workshops with published proceedings
 is not allowed. It is required that each accepted paper be presented at
 the conference by one of its authors.

 Submissions must not exceed 12 pages formatted according to LNCS
 style plus an optional, clearly marked appendix of reasonable length
 (to be read at the program committee's discretion). The first page
 must include an indication of whether the paper is eligible for the
 best student paper award.

 The submission system can be accessed via http://fct2017.labri.fr/.
