                         EXTENDED SUBMISSION DEADLINE

IWIL has been unusually sucessful in bringing together many talented 
developers, and thus in sharing information about successful implementation 
techniques for automated reasoning systems and similar programs.  We are 
looking for contributions describing implementation techniques for and 
implementations of automated reasoning programs, theorem provers for various 
logics, logic programming systems, and related technologies. 

Researchers interested in participating are invited to submit a position 
statement (2 pages), a short paper (up to 5 pages), or a full paper (up to 
15 pages), in EasyChair format. Submission is via EasyChair ...

The MEMICS 2010 workshop is organized jointly by the Faculty of Information
Technology, Brno University of Technology, and the Faculty of Informatics,
Masaryk University. MEMICS provides a forum for doctoral students
interested in applications of mathematical and engineering methods in
computer science.

Topics: Submissions are invited especially in the following (though not
exclusive) areas: computer security; software and hardware dependability;
parallel and distributed computing; formal analysis and verification;
simulation; testing and diagnostics; grid computing; computer networks;
modern hardware and its design; non-traditional computing architectures;
quantum computing; as well as all areas of theoretical computer science
underlying the previously mentioned subjects. Moreover, this year, we
specifically invite submissions in computer graphics and vision, signal and
image processing, text and speech processing, human-computer interaction,
especially when related with security or parallel or distributed

Invited talks will be given by Alan Chalmers (Univ. of Warwick, UK) on
`Real Virtuality: High-fidelity multi-sensory virtual environments',
Andreas Steininger (Vienna Univ. of Technology, Austria) on `New approaches
to fault tolerant systems design', Antti Valmari (Tampere Univ. of
Technology, Finland) on `Recent results on DFA minimization and other block
splitting algorithms', and Stefan Wörz (Univ. of Heidelberg and DKFZ
Heidelberg, Germany) on `Model-based segmentation of biomedical images'.

Students are invited to submit a regular paper or a presentation. A regular
paper is a previously unpublished piece of work with original results, not
exceeding 8 pages in the LNCS style. A presentation reflects recent
outstanding work that has been published (or is accepted for publication)
at a leading computer science conference or in a recognized scientific
journal. Presentations to be included in the programme will be selected on
the basis of a one-page abstract, which will also appear in the
proceedings. For formatting and submission instructions see the detailed
instructions for authors at the workshop's web page. The proceedings will
be available at the workshop in printed form.

Important Dates
Regular paper registration: September 1, 2010
Regular paper and presentation submission: September 8, 2010
Review notification: September 22, 2010
Camera ready papers and presentations: September 30, 2010

Venue: The workshop will be held in Mikulov, a lovely town near the
Austrian borders at the edge of the Palava Landscape Protected Area.
Mikulov, situated in the centre of vineyard area, is also famous for
numerous examples of architecture. Tourists attractions include the Mikulov
Castle, the Piarist College, the Dietrichstein Sepulchre, and the former

Workshop in at the National Library of Israel, 6-7 October

The ESF COST Action Interedition is delighted to offer several bursaries 
for a workshop to be held at the National Library of Israel, 6-7 October 

The goals of Interedition < interedition.eu/> is to promote the 
interoperability of the tools and methodology used in the field of 
digital scholarly editing and research. Equally, Interedition seeks to 
raise the awareness of the importance of sustainability of the digital 
artefacts and instruments we create. To this end, Intereditions is 
hosting this workshop at the National Library of Israel to explore the 
tools, methodologies, and approaches to better support a shared model 
for the creation of sustainable infrastructure for digital text.

Applications are being accepted for bursaries for early stage 
researchers to attend this two-day event which will include lectures by 
leading textual scholars (including Dirk Van Hulle, Fotis Jannidis, 
Susan Schreibman, and Joris van Zundert) The first day will focus on 
lectures on topics ranging from the creation and futures of digital 
scholarly editions, to the tools being used to create and edit them. The 
second day will be hands-on centering on practical experience in using 
tools and methodologies central to the discipline, including TEI, 
eLaborate, and CollateX. On day II attendees will participate in a 
project slam and there will be ample opportunity to discuss their 
editing projects with workshop facilitators.

To apply for busaries, candidates must be:

* an emerging scholar, which is defined by the ESF as someone who has 

not been in an established position for more than five years, with 

exceptions for parental, medical, and national service leaves. The ESF 

notes that ‘students, post-doctorate researchers and lecturers within 5 

years of appointment would be amongst those included in this definition’.

* you are affiliated to a an institution in a country in which ESF has 
member organisation <see 


Bursaries will be awarded in two categories: up to €300 for Israeli 
delegates and up to €1200 for European delegates to cover housing and 
travel costs. Expenses will be reimbursed after the event in line with 
COST procedures.

If you fit the above criteria and would like to apply for consideration, 

please send no more than two pages that include the following: a) a 
CV showing your career history and current academic affiliation; 
and b) how 
this workshop will intersect with your research. Please send 
your application to susan.schreibman[AT]gmail.com no later than 24 August.
