Call for Papers - RP 2020


14th International Conference on Reachability Problems (RP'20).

October 19-21 2020, Paris, France


Abstract submission: June 30, 2020, AoE Paper submission deadline: July 3, 2020, AoE

The institut de recherche en informatique fondamentale at Université de Paris organises the 14th International Conference on Reachability Problems (RP'20).


Invited speakers: * Valérie Berthé (CNRS, Paris) * Patricia Bouyer-Decitre (CNRS, Saclay) * Kousha Etessami (University of Edinburgh) * Orna Kupferman (Hebrew University) * Dirk Nowotka (Kiel University)


Submission Guidelines: There are two categories of submissions: * Regular Papers: authors are invited to submit a draft of a full paper with at most 12 pages (excluding the bibliography) formatted according to the LNCS guidelines. Authors are asked to submit their paper through EasyChair at * Presentations: in addition to the formal presentations based on our LNCS proceedings volume, we invite researchers to submit a paper which recently appeared (or which is going to appear) in proceedings of another conference, or which has not yet been submitted. Neither the paper nor the abstract will be published in the proceedings.


Important Dates: abstract submission: June 30, 2020, AoE paper submission: July 3, 2020, AoE notification: August 17, 2020 camera ready: August 24, 2020


Topics: The conference is specifically aimed at gathering together scholars from diverse disciplines and backgrounds interested in reachability problems that appear in * Algebraic structures * Automata theory and formal languages * Computational game theory * Concurrency and distributed computation * Decision procedures in computational models * Hybrid dynamical systems * Logic and model checking * Verification of finite and infinite-state systems


Topics of interest include (but are not limited to): reachability problems in infinite-state systems, rewriting systems, dynamical and hybrid systems; reachability problems in logic and verification; reachability analysis in different computational models, counter timed/ cellular/ communicating automata; Petri nets; computational and combinatorial aspects of algebraic structures (semigroups, groups and rings); frontiers between decidable and undecidable reachability problems; predictability in iterative maps and new computational paradigms.


Program Committee: * C. Aiswarya (CMI, IN) * S. Akshay (IIT-Bombay, IN) * Christel Baier (TU Dresden, DE) * Nathalie Bertrand (Inria, FR) * Sergiy Bogomolov (Newcastle U., UK) * Olivier Bournez (École Polytechnique, FR) * Laure Daviaud (City U. London, UK) * Pierre Ganty (IMDEA Software Institute, ES) * Gilles Geeraerts (U. Libre de Bruxelles, BE) * Matthew Hague (Royal Holloway U. London, UK) * Mika Hirvensalo (U. Turku, FI) * Petr Jančar (Palacký U. Olomouc, CZ) * Raphaël Jungers (U. C. Louvain, BE) * Akitoshi Kawamura (Kyushu U., JP) * Sang-Ki Ko (Kangwon Natl. U., KR) * Slawomir Lasota (U. Warsaw, PL) * Karoliina Lehtinen (U. Liverpool, UK) * Igor Potapov (U. Liverpool, UK, co-chair) * Cristian Riveros (Pontifica U. Católica de Chile, CHL) * Sylvain Schmitz (U. de Paris, FR, co-chair) * Mahsa Shirmohammadi (CNRS, FR) * Georg Zetzsche (MPI-SWS, DE)


Venue: The conference was initially planned to be held in Paris, on the campus des grands moulins of Université de Paris. However, as the coronavirus pandemic is causing a major disruption in the lives of many members of our community, we will consult the authors of submitted papers at notification time; based on this feedback the conference will be either held physically (with an option of remote participation and a reduced conference fee for those who cannot attend) or completely virtually. Either way the publication of the conference proceedings will go forward as usual.
