About ICTAC 2010

ICTAC 2010 is the 7th International Colloquium on Theoretical Aspects of
Computing, the latest in a series founded by the International Institute for
Software Technology of the United Nations University (UNU-IIST). ICTAC 2010
will bring together practitioners and researchers from academia, industry and
government to present research and to exchange ideas and experience addressing
challenges in both theoretical aspects of computing and in the exploitation of
theory through methods and tools for system development. Our other main
purpose is to promote cooperation in research and education between
participants and their institutions, from developing and industrial countries,
as in the mandate of the United Nations University. The previous ICTAC events
were held in Guiyang, China (2004), Hanoi, Vietnam (2005), Tunis, Tunisia
(2006), Macau (2007), Istanbul, Turkey (2008) and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
(2009). ICTAC 2010 includes two special tracks: the first on the Grand
Challenge on Verified Software, the second on Formal Approaches to Testing.


Traditionally, ICTAC hosts a number of affiliated workshops complementing its
technical program. Affiliated workshops will be organized on the 30th and 31st
of August, as pre-event workshops.

Proposals for workshops affiliated with ICTAC 2010 are cordially invited.
