CALCO Early Ideas

The CALCO Early Ideas Workshop is a CALCO satellite workshop dedicated to presentation of work in progress and original research proposals. PhD students and young researchers are particularly encouraged to contribute. Attendance at the workshop is open to all - it is anticipated that many CALCO conference participants will want to attend the CALCO Early Ideas workshop (and vice versa).

Topics of interest

The CALCO Early Ideas Workshop invites submissions on the same topics as the CALCO conference: reporting results of theoretical work on the mathematics of algebras and coalgebras, the way these results can support methods and techniques for software development, as well as experience with the transfer of the resulting technologies into industrial practice. The list of topics of particular interest is shown on the main CALCO 2013 page.


CALCO Early Ideas presentations will be selected according to originality, significance, and general interest, on the basis of submitted 2-page short contributions. It can be work in progress, a summary of work submitted to a conference or workshop elsewhere, or work that in some other way might be interesting to the CALCO audience. A booklet with the accepted short contributions will be available at the workshop.

Submissions will be handled via the Easy Chair System. The use of LNCS style is strongly encouraged.

After the workshop, authors will have the opportunity to submit a full 10-15 page paper on the same topic. The reviewing will be carried out by the CALCO Early Ideas PC, with the support of the CALCO PC. The volume of selected papers will be available online. Authors will retain copyright, and are also encouraged to disseminate the results by subsequent publication elsewhere.
