Call for Papers

Research in reversible computation has drawn the attention of researchers over the years. Reversible computation has a growing number of promising application areas such as low power design, coding/decoding, testing and verification, database recovery, discrete event simulation, reversible specification formalism, reversible programming languages, process algebras, quantum computation, etc. First reversible circuits and quantum circuits have been implemented and are seen as promising alternatives to conventional CMOS technology.

The conference will bring together researchers from computer science, mathematics, and physics to discuss new developments and directions for future research in Reversible Computation. This includes applications of reversibility in quantum computation. Research papers, tutorials, tool demonstrations, and work-in-progress reports are within the scope of the conference. Invited talks by leading international experts will complete the program.

Contributions on all areas of Reversible Computation are welcome, including---but not limited to---the following topics

  • Applications
  • Architectures
  • Algorithms
  • Circuit Design
  • Debugging
  • Fault Tolerance and Error Correction
  • Hardware
  • Information Theory
  • Physical Realizations
  • Programming Languages
  • Quantum Computation
  • Software
  • Synthesis
  • Theoretical Results
  • Testing
  • Verification

Interested researchers are invited to submit full research papers (16 pages maximum), as well as work-in-progress or tool demonstration papers (6 pages maximum) in Springer LNCS format. Contributions must be written in English and report on original, unpublished work, not submitted for publication elsewhere. All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings and published by Springer as a Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) volume.

The 11th Conference on Reversible Computation will take place on June 24th and 25th, 2019, in Lausanne, Switzerland. Previous editions of this event took place as workshop in York (2009), Bremen (2010), Gent (2011), Copenhagen (2012), and as conference in Victoria (2013), Kyoto (2014), Grenoble (2015), Bologna (2016), Kolkata (2017), and Leicester (2018).

The International Workshop on Logic Synthesis (IWLS) will be co-located to the conference.
