The 12th International Workshop on Coalgebraic Methods in Computer Science
5 - 6 April 2014, Grenoble, France
(co-located with ETAPS 2014)

Aims and scope

In more than a decade of research, it has been established that a wide variety of state-based dynamical systems, like transition systems, automata (including weighted and probabilistic variants), Markov chains, and game-based systems, can be treated uniformly as coalgebras. Coalgebra has developed into a field of its own interest presenting a deep mathematical foundation, a growing field of applications, and interactions with various other fields such as reactive and interactive system theory, object-oriented and concurrent programming, formal system specification, modal and description logics, artificial intelligence, dynamical systems, control systems, category theory, algebra, analysis, etc. The aim of the CMCS workshops is to bring together researchers with a common interest in the theory of coalgebras, their logics, and their applications. As the workshop serie strives to maintain breadth in its scope, participation by researchers in neighbouring areas is strongly encouraged.

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

Keynote Speaker

Invited Speakers

Special Session

There will be a special session on game theory organized by Marina Lenisa
and Marcello Bonsangue on Saturday April 5 2014 with tutorials from
  • Paul-Andre Mellies, Université Paris Denis Diderot, FR
  • Pierre Lescanne, Ecole Normale Superieure de Lyon, FR


Submission is electronic via the easychair system at following the submission guidelines below. We solicit two types of contributions:
  1. Regular papers to be evaluated by the PC for publication in the proceedings:
    They must have a length of at most 20 pages, formatted in LNCS style ( They must contain original contributions, be clearly written, and include appropriate reference to and comparison with related work.
  2. Short contributions:
    These will not be published in the proceedings but will be bundled in a technical report. They should be no more than two pages in LNCS format and may describe work in progress, summarise work submitted to a conference or workshop elsewhere, or in some other way appeal to the CMCS audience.

Proceedings Publication

The proceedings of CMCS 2014 will be published in Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science. The final proceedings will be published post-conference and consist of revised versions of the accepted regular papers. Preliminary proceedings will be made available at the conference in electronic form. Depending on the number and quality of submissions, we will consider publishing extended and revised papers as a journal special issue, subject to the usual reviewing procedure. Previous special issues of CMCS have appeared in high-ranking journals including Information and Computation and Theoretical Computer Science.
