                      Call for Organisers - ICTAC 2020
 International Colloquium on Theoretical Aspects of Computing (ICTAC)


Background and Objectives

The International Colloquium on Theoretical Aspects of Computing
(ICTAC) was founded in 2004. The aim of the colloquium is to bring
together practitioners and researchers from academia, industry and
government to present research results, and exchange experience, ideas,
and solutions for their problems in theoretical aspects of computing.
Beyond these scholarly goals, another main purpose of the conference
is to promote cooperation in research and education between
participants and their institutions, from developing and industrial

The event takes place every year. Each conference attracts between 50
and 100 participants from all over the world. We now invite proposals
from any group or institution wishing to host this event. The
priority is for the event to be located in a developing country. It
usually combines a regular three-day scientific conference with
related activities such as tutorials over another two-days and a
summer school over the previous week. Innovation in the format and
content is encouraged.

Proposals will be evaluated by the ICTAC steering committee.

Proposal Format and Submission

Proposals should be no more than four pages in length and should contain:
    * Brief description of why the event is of interest to the proposer.
    * Vision for the event, including its aims, the expected format and
    * An estimation of expected attendance, based, for example, on
      presence of a local community in the area and costs of travel to
      various parts of the world and local expenses.
    * A description of the relevant qualifications and experience of the
      proposers, especially regarding conference organization logistics.
    * A description of the facilities that will be available for the
