MFOI 2018

Chisinau, Republic Of Moldova 2 - 6 July 2018 9:00 - 17:00

Conference on Mathematical Foundations of Informatics

The 2018 edition of the annual Conference on Mathematical Foundations of Informatics is intended to add synergy to the efforts of the researchers working on development of the development of mathematical foundations for computer science, also known as informatics. Round tables are planned to ensure an open debate on the state of the art and new directions of research and cooperation.

All accepted papers will be published in Proceedings of the Conference, which will be handed over to participants on the first day of the conference. The selected papers will be also published after the conference in the CSJM (Computer Science Journal of Moldova – indexed in Mathematical Reviews, Zentralblatt MATH, MathSciNet, DBLP, DOAJ, EBSCO) or in the Bulletin of Academy of Sciences of Moldova, ser. Mathematics (indexed in Mathematical Reviews, Zentralblatt MATH, SCImago Journal Rank (SJR), Russian RZh Matematika).

Professor Alexei Muravitsky of Mathematics at the Louisiana Scholars’ College at Northwestern State University, USA. His research interests belong to mathematical logic (non-classical logics and lattices of their extensions), nonmonotonic reasoning, and application of domain theory and many-valued logics to knowledge representation and expert systems.

Professor Ferucio Laurentiu Tiplea of Mathematics at the “Al. I. Cuza” University of Iasi. His research interests includes Petri nets, formal languages and automata, computability and complexity, codes and cryptography.

Volodimir G. Skobelev is a Leading Researcher at V. M. Glushkov Institute of Cybernetics of National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.


Your paper is required to be 6-16 pages in English (one page approximating A5 size, i.e. about 800 words), and using the MFOI templates (MFOI2018_template_A5.doc, mfoi2018_template.tex, mfoi2018_template.pdf, mfoi2018.sty,

Please, start with a succinct statement of the problem, present your results, their significance and a comparison with previous works (if any), as well as a list of references. The submissions should also include: the title of proposed paper, author’s names, affiliations, addresses, the name of an author to contact for a possible correspondence, the e-mail address of the contact author, and topics which best describe the paper (max. 5 keywords).

The sponsors will offer two prizes for two best papers of young researchers – one for a pure mathematical treatment, and the other for a treatment which has or is promising to have applications to natural language processing. The prize winner papers will be marked up in Proceedings. The information about prize winners and interviews with them will be published in mass-media and a CD with this data will be handed over to the winners.


Please send your paper to with subject “MFOI Paper”.


Registration is just to give us notice that you intend to participate, which will help to properly plan this event. In particular, upon registration we will discuss with you about hotel room options and reservation. No payments are required at this stage – all payments are to be made on arrival. Please fill the attached registration form and email it to with the message’ subject “Registration form”. We encourage that you register by the time you book your travel tickets, which for economy purposes must be at an early stage. In this case, please, indicate in your Registration form a tentative title of your paper. The final version of the title is needed only by “Camera ready” time.
