The EasyChair system is used for the abstract submission. Use the following link.

Abstracts of 2-3 pages must be submitted in the MAPSP format using this template, intended and tested for use with PDFLaTeX. For the submissions, .pdf files are accepted. Later for the abstract book we will require .tex files that compile in PDFLaTeX, so please if you are using pictures, take this into account.

MAPSP submissions undergo a selection process based on a light refereeing by the PC. MAPSP does not publish proceedings other than a conference booklet. Hence, presenting your paper at MAPSP will not prevent you from submitting it to journals or to other conferences. Similarly, it is acceptable to submit a paper that was presented at an earlier conference. Submissions by PC members are allowed.

Most contributed talks will have 20 minutes. Some submissions will be selected for 30 minute plenary talks.


The details of registration will appear later.

We intend to follow the traditional MAPSP setting. It will be a five day conference, starting on Monday morning and ending on Friday after lunch. Participants are expected to arrive on Sunday afternoon/evening. There will be one invited lecture per day, and contributed talks will be given in three parallel sessions. We intend to have enough “free” time between the talks for discussions and social activities.

The detailed program will appear later.


Seeon Abbey

The workshop will take place in Seeon Abbey (Kloster Seeon in German), a more than 1000 year old, beautifully restored monastery on an island in a picturesque lake. There is plenty of space for sitting outside, both in the courtyard and directly at the lake. Bikes can be rented. A small beach with lawn and deck-chairs is available.
