The 14th International Workshop on
Coalgebraic Methods in Computer Science (CMCS’18)
Thessaloniki, Greece, 14 – 15 April 2018
(co-located with ETAPS 2018)
www.coalg.org/cmcs18

Objectives and Scope

Established in 1998, the CMCS workshops aim to bring together researchers with a common interest in the theory of coalgebras, their logics, and their applications. As the workshop series strives to maintain breadth in its scope, areas of interest include neighbouring fields as well.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • the theory of coalgebras (including set theoretic and categorical approaches);
  • coalgebras as computational and semantical models (for programming languages, dynamical systems, term rewriting, etc.);
  • coalgebras in (functional, logic, answer set, object-oriented, concurrent, and constraint) programming;
  • coalgebraic data types, type systems and behavioural typing;
  • coinductive definition and proof principles for coalgebras (including “up-to” techniques);
  • coalgebras and algebras;
  • coalgebras and (modal) logic;
  • coalgebraic specification and verification;
  • coalgebra and control theory (notably of discrete event and hybrid systems);
  • coalgebra in quantum computing;
  • coalgebra and game theory;
  • tools exploiting coalgebraic techniques.

CMCS’18 will be held in Thessaloniki, Greece, co-located with ETAPS 2018, on 14 – 15 April 2018.

Submission Guidelines

We solicit two types of contributions: regular papers and short contributions. Regular papers must be original, unpublished, and not submitted for publication elsewhere. They should not exceed 20 pages in length in Springer LNCS style. Short contributions may describe work in progress, or summarise work submitted to a conference or workshop elsewhere. They should be no more than two pages. Regular papers and short contributions should be submitted electronically as a PDF file via the Easychair system at
