Background and Objectives

ICTAC is an International Colloquium on Theoretical Aspects of Computing created by the International Institute for Software Technology of the United Nations University (UNU-IIST). The aim of the colloquium is to bring together practitioners and researchers from academia, industry and government to present research results, and exchange experience, ideas and solutions for their problems in theoretical aspects of computing. Beyond these scholarly goals, another main purpose of the conference is to promote cooperation in research and education between participants and their institutions, from developing and industrial countries, as in the mandate of the United Nations University. The previous six ICTAC events were held in Guiyang, China (2004), Hanoi, Vietnam (2005), Tunis, Tunisia (2006), Macau (2007), Istanbul, Turkey (2008) and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (2009).

ICTAC 2010 includes two special tracks: a track on Formal Approaches to Testing, chaired by Marie-Claude Gaudel, and a track on the Grand Challenge in Verified Software, chaired by Jim Woodcock. Papers accepted to the special tracks will be included in the proceedings. Moreover, they may be selected for the special issue of Theoretical Computer Science.
