 CALL FOR PAPERS SOFSEM'95
 XXII International Winter School
 on Theoretical and Practical Aspects of Computer Science
 November 25 - December 2, 1995 Hotel 9 skal, Milovy, Czech Republic
 Czech and Slovak Societies for Computer Science and Czech ACM Chapter

Subject
 SOFSEM (SOFtware SEMinar) is an eight-day international winter school devoted
to the theory and the practice of software systems. Its program consists of a
series of invited talks given by prominent academic professionals and
researchers. Contributed talks and posters of participants are also included
in the program of SOFSEM. The working language is English.
 Invited talks and contributed talks are published by Springer-Verlag in the
series "Lecture Notes in Computer Science" and distributed at the seminar.
 The one-day tutorial devoted to Information Technology Security issues is
given as an additional program of SOFSEM '95 prior to the actual seminar. The
tutorial is held in Czech, and it is aimed at the Czech information system
managers and computer security specialists.
 Sofsem'95 is the 22nd in the series of Sofsem seminars held annually and
follows many successful meetings; it is intended to foster cooperation among
people working in various areas of computer science. Its scientific program
offers a unique opportunity to gain a relatively quick and representative
overview about the selected parts of computer science, presented by top
researchers. Its social program provides an optimal framework for discussions,
meetings, contact establishing, and recreation. Especially suited for PhD
students and young computer scientists.
