Developments and New Tracks in Trace Theory (DNTTT '08') is a 3-days workshop, supported by the ESF project AutoMathA, aimed at assessing and exchanging the recent scientific advances of the theory of Mazurkiewicz traces. This development of formal language and automata theory offers much potential for modelling distributed and parallel systems. The meeting will focus on algorithmic, algebraic and logical aspects of the theory, as well as on models for analysis and synthesis of distributed and parallel systems.

Call for Participation

We invite scientists and doctoral students active in the field to attend the workshop. The number of participants is limited to about 50. If you would like to come, please send your name and affiliation. There is no registration fee, and lunches and coffee breaks are offered, but traveling and accommodation is at your charge. Partial financial support may be available for doctoral students,who should attach an application containing their CV to the registration. To register send a mail to tracetheory@elet.polimi.it by July 31, 2008.

Call for Scientific Contributions

We plan a limited number of 30 minutes talks, in addition to the already confirmed presentations (see http://tracetheory.elet.polimi.it).

No workshop proceedings will be published, but we will hand out to participants the slides of presentations. We welcome, in addition to original unpublished contributions, also recently published or submitted results. If you would like to propose a presentation, send your name, proposed title, and two-pages abstract plus bibliography to tracetheory@elet.polimi.it before June 30, 2008. We will notify the decision by July 31, 2008.
