The 8th International Workshop on Reachability Problems (RP2014)
(22 - 24 September 2013, University of Oxford, United Kingdom)

The Department of Computer Science will organize the 8th International Workshop 
on Reachability Problems (RP'2014). This event will take place at the 
Department in the centre of Oxford, 22 - 24 September 2014.

Papers presenting original contributions related to reachability problems in 
different computational models and systems are being sought. This will also be 
the occasion to review recent breakthroughs by renown invited experts and 
survey emerging trends and emphasize on key open challenges. Participants are 
kindly encouraged to discuss on core scientific issues that need to be further 

The Reachability Workshop is specifically aimed at gathering together
scholars from diverse disciplines and backgrounds interested in
reachability problems that appear in
- Algebraic structures
- Computational models
- Hybrid systems
- Logic and Verification

Invited Speakers:

- Byron Cook, UCL and Microsoft Research, UK.
- Kousha Etessami, University of Edinburgh, UK.
- Anca Muscholl, LaBRI Bordeaux, France.
- Sylvain Schmitz, LSV and ENS-Cachan, France.


Papers presenting original contributions related to reachability problems in 
different computational models and systems are being sought.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to): Reachability for infinite 
state systems, rewriting systems; Reachability analysis in counter/ timed/ 
cellular/ communicating automata; Petri-Nets; computational aspects of 
semigroups, groups and rings; Reachability in dynamical and hybrid systems; 
frontiers between decidable and undecidable reachability problems; complexity 
and decidability aspects; predictability in iterative maps and new 
computational paradigms

Authors are invited to submit a draft of a full paper with at most 12 pages (in 
LaTeX, formatted according to LNCS guidelines) via the conference web page. 
Proofs omitted due to space constraints must be put into an appendix to be read 
by the program committee members at their discretion. Submissions deviating 
from these guidelines risk rejection. Electronic submissions should be 
formatted in pdf. Simultaneous submission to other conferences or workshops 
with published proceedings is not allowed.

Important Dates

- Submission deadline: 4 June 2014
- Notification to authors: 4 July 2014
- Final version: 14 July 2014
- Workshop: 22 - 24 September 2014

Presentation-Only Track

In addition to regular papers that will appear in our LNCS proceedings, we 
invite researchers to apply to give a presentation at RP 2014 without an 
accompanying paper.  Such presentations can be based on work that has appeared 
(or which is going to appear) in the proceedings of another conference, or 
which has not yet been submitted.  These contributions will be judged solely on 
the basis of their attractiveness to the workshop.

To apply to give such a presentation please submit a PDF file containing a 
short abstract (up to two pages) by e-mail [ rp2014 at easychair.org ] by August 
4th 2014, with  subject "RP2014 Presentation-Only Track".  This abstract will 
not be published in the conference proceedings.
Notification for the presentation-only track will be August 11th 2014.


The Conference Proceedings will be published as the volume of the Springer 
Verlag LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) series and distributed at the 
Conference. We plan also to publish selected papers in a special issue of a 
high quality journal following the regular referee procedure.
