SOFSEM (SOFtware SEMinar) is an annual international winter conference
devoted to the theory and practice of computer science. The first SOFSEM was
organized in 1974. SOFSEM consists of invited talks by prominent
researchers, of contributed talks selected from the submitted papers, and of
the Student Research Forum. The program is organized in plenary talks and
parallel tracks devoted to original research in the selected research areas.

SOFSEM has a long-standing tradition of facilitating discussions and collegial
interactions. It is well-known for its familiar and inspiring atmosphere and as
a meeting place for active and leading computer scientists. SOFSEM is a
track-based conference. It features the traditional track on foundations of
computer science and a number of other tracks that cover contemporary
important areas, such as artificial intelligence, cryptography, security,
verification, data science, knowledge engineering, social computing and
human factors, software and web engineering, etc.

The Track Chairs are soliciting technical papers for presentation at the
conference and inclusion in the proceedings published by Springer in the
ARCoSS/LNCS series. The topics of the conference are organised in four
tracks and the (non exhaustive) list of topics for each track is as follows:

Foundations of Computer Science
 Algorithms and data structures
 Automata and formal languages
 Complexity theory
 Computability theory
 Cryptography and security
 Graphs and networks
 Machine learning
 Non-classical models of computing
 Theory of databases, semi-structured data, and finite model theory
 Theory of programming languages

Foundations of Software Engineering
 Methods and tools for improved software processes
 Software architecture of complex software-intensive systems
 Requirements Engineering
 Model-based software engineering methods and tools
