The 45th International Colloquium on Automata, Languages, and Programming (ICALP) will take place in Prague, Czech Republic, on July 9-13, 2018.

ICALP is the main conference and annual meeting of the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS). As usual, ICALP will be preceded by a series of workshops, which will take place on July 9.

As a new feature, ICALP 2018 will include brief announcements intended as a venue for short papers, work in progress or work presented elsewhere. See the submission guidelines.

Student and Young Women Researcher Support

Thanks to support from AVAST and RSJ companies, we are able to offer several travel grants covering a waiver of the registration fee and in exceptional cases possibly also a limited travel support. The grants will be given in two categories:
  • young women researchers, including students and researchers within 6 years after PhD (excluding any maternity leave), supported by AVAST;
  • students (PhD or lower), supported by RSJ.
