                        Call for Papers

        27-th International Colloquium on Automata, Languages
                        and Programming

              July 9-15, 2000,  Geneva, Switzerland

The 27-th annual meeting of the European Association of Theoretical Computer
Science will be held in Geneva, Switzerland.

As is the case with the two tracks of the journal Theoretical Computer
Science, the scientific program of the colloquium is split into two parts:
Track A of the meeting will correspond to  Algorithms, Automata, Complexity,
and Games, while Track B to  Logic, Semantics, and Theory of Programming.

Original contributions to theory of computer science, to be
presented either in Track A or in Track B, are being sought. Authors are
invited to submit extended abstracts of their papers, not
exceeding 12 pages in the standard Springer Verlag LNCS style. Instructions
for paper submissions can be found  at the conference webpage. Authors from
countries where access to Internet is difficult may mail a single copy of
their paper directly to the address of the conference chairman.
Submissions should consist of: a cover page, with the author's full
name, address, fax number, e-mail address, a 100-word abstract, keywords
and to which track (A or B) the paper is being submitted
and an extended abstract describing original research in
no more than 12 pages.
It is expected that accepted papers will be presented at the conference.
Simultaneous submission to other conferences with published proceedings
is not allowed.

In addition, one page proposals for workshops, to be sent to the 
conference chair until November 10, 1999, are welcome.

                          General Information

Geneva is situated along the banks of Lac Leman and Le Rhone.
The lake showcases the plumed fountain Jet d'Eau, and various districts
of Geneva are connected by bridges across the waterways.
The University of Geneva where ICALP '00 will convene is located on the
`Left Bank' off Place Neuve and along the Promenade des Bastions
near the Old Town section of Geneva.

Geneva is a city of water parks and gardens and welcoming walkways
which encourage exploration of the historical sites, museums, and
international business and shopping districts. The University of
Geneva is located near `Old Town' an area dotted with sidewalk
cafes, student life, and building antiquities dating back to the 5th

Geneva is a crossroads situated in the heart of Europe and linked to
the world by a vast network of motorways, airlines and railways. For
those planning to attend ICALP '00 in Geneva, it is an excellent
opportunity to organize short trips into the countryside of charming
villages and vineyards. Tours to please all ages and interests are
available including afternoon train excursions, shopping cruises on
Lake Geneva and The Rhone, and bus and cablecar trips in the Alps.
For some, the most inviting attraction will be mouintain climbing.
Mont Blanc, one of the highest points in Europe and the city of Chamonix
are less than an hour away.

Accomodations at a very special ICALP rate have been reserved in a
couple of hotels and very inexpensive rooms will be available at
the Student Housing.  Lunch will be served daily on campus
and there will be morning and afternoon refreshment breaks.
Note that the specially  priced hotel accommodations reserved
for ICALP participants are located only a 5-10 minute walk to
the campus.
