About

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

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 renowned invited experts and survey emerging trends and emphasise on key open challenges. Participants are kindly encouraged to discuss core scientific issues that need to be further tackled.

The conference proceedings will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). A selection of articles among the contributed papers will be invited to a special issue of a journal (TBA).

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.

Venue & COVID-19

The conference was initially planned to be held in Paris, on the campus des grands moulins of Université de Paris and to be collocated with the AutoMathA 2020 conference, which would have taken place on Oct. 21–24.

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.

Anti-Harassment Policy

We believe that the advancement of research is best accomplished in an environment that is open, diverse and respectful to all participants. During the conference, we will follow the anti-harassment policy of ACM. Anyone witnessing or subject to unacceptable behaviour should notify the conference chairs.
