Call for papers: CARI 2018 in Stellenbosh (South Africa)

CARI, the African Conference on Research in Computer Science, is the outcome of an international cooperation involving African universities, French research institutes, and international organizations. Occurring once every two years since its first edition held in 1992 (Yaounde, Cameroon), CARI is more than a scientific gathering, but a dynamic environment for cooperation that brings together African researchers, and decision-makers in the fields of computer science and applied mathematics. The scientific program, which reflects the wealth and diversity of the research carried out on the African continent, places special emphasis on work that can contribute to technological development, environmental awareness and natural resource management.

The conference is organized by the Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique (INRIA), the Institut de Recherche pour le Développement (IRD), the Centre de coopération Internationale en Recherche Agronomique pour le Développement (CIRAD), the International Center for Pure and Applied Mathematics and the Agence Universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF). The next conference in 2018 will be held in South Africa under the responsability of Prof. Bruce Watson (Stellenbosch University).

The conference CARI’2018 will be associated with ICTAC (International Colloquium on the Theoretical Aspect of Computing) and will be preceded by a research school co-organized by CARI and ICTAC on the "Formal methods for computing systems".

  • From October 12 to October 14: CARI-ICTAC research school
  • From October 14 to October 16: CARI conference
  • Wednesday October 17: joint excursion CARI–ICTAC

Important dates:

  • Opening submission site: October 16, 2017
  • Submission deadline: January 15, 2018
  • Notification of acceptance: May 14, 2018
  • Final version: July 2, 2018

Usually CARI accepts papers witten in either French or English. Since this edition will be held in South Africa the Papers should be written in English. The submitted papers are in PDF and they should conform the template of ARIMA Journal. The limit length of papers is 8 pages to which annexes of a maximal length of 4 pages can be added. These annexes will also be published in the proceedings.

There is no inscription fees to the conference. Moreover CARI will provide support to some authors to enable them to present their accepted paper on the following conditions:

  • Only members from African institutions, at the time of the conference, are eligible from a financial support.
  • Before seeking a support from the CARI an African author should provide a document from his/her institution stating which part of the expense (eventually none) it agrees to take care of.
  • A senior researcher (i.e., neither Doctorate or Post-doc.) is not allowed to ask CARI to support both his travel expenses and her sejourn expenses (at least one of these should be supported by other means).
