21st International Conference on
Relational and Algebraic Methods in Computer Science

View of Prague

RAMICS 2024 will take place in Prague 19-22 August 2024, collocated with AiML 2024.

Download conference poster

Since 1994, the RAMiCS conference series has been the main venue for research on relation algebras, Kleene algebras and similar algebraic formalisms, and their applications as conceptual and methodological tools in computer science and beyond.

Theoretical aspects include semigroups, residuated lattices, semirings, Kleene algebras, relation algebras, quantales and other algebras; their connections with program logics and other logics; their use in the theories of automata, concurrency, formal languages, games, networks and programming languages; the development of algebraic, algorithmic, category-theoretic, coalgebraic and proof-theoretic methods for these theories; their formalisation with theorem provers.

Applications include tools and techniques for program correctness, specification and verification; quantitative and qualitative models and semantics of computing systems and processes; algorithm design, automated reasoning, network protocol analysis, social choice, optimisation and control.

Venue and local organization

RAMiCS is collocated with AiML 2024 and is co-organized by the Institute of Computer Science and the Institute of Philosophy of the Czech Academy of Sciences, and the Faculty of Arts of Charles University.

The venue is located a few metres from the Staroměstská metro station.

See the AiML local information site for more.

Call for papers

Springer LNCS logo

All papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three referees. The proceedings will be published in an LNCS volume by Springer, ready at the conference. Submissions must not be published or under review for publication elsewhere. Submissions must be in English using a PDF not exceeding 16 pages (excluding references) in LNCS style.

Submission is via EasyChair at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ramics2024

Submissions must provide sufficient information to judge their merits. Additional material may be provided in a clearly marked appendix or by a reference to a manuscript on a web site. Experimental data, software or mathematical components for theorem provers must be available in sufficient detail for referees. Deviation from these requirements may lead to rejection.

One author of each accepted paper is expected to present the paper at the conference. Accepted papers must be produced with LaTeX. Formatting instructions and LNCS style files are available at http://www.springer.com/comp/lncs/authors.html.

As for earlier RAMiCS conferences, we intend to publish a journal special issue with revised and extended versions of a selection of the best papers.

Call for short contributions/posters

Additionally to the standard CfP, RAMiCS is also calling for short contributions and posters. We are hence calling for presentations of original, unfinished, already published, or otherwise interesting work within the topics of the RAMiCS conferences. The submission can be in the form of a poster, an abstract, a paper submitted to or published at another conference, or any other format. Short contributions will not be published in the conference proceedings.

Please send your short submission as a single pdf file to ramics2024@easychair.org by 17 June 2024.

RAMICS history

RAMiCS has been taking place since 1994, first under the acronym of RelMiCS ("Relational Methods in Computer Science") and, after uniting with the AKA conferences ("Applications of Kleene Algebra") as RAMiCS since 2009. For more information, see https://ramics-conf.github.io/.
