We are a small group of researchers associated with the Mathematics and Computer Science Department of the West University of Timişoara and the e-Austria Research Institute. We are interested in Theoretical Computer Science at large, with a special focus on:
- probabilistic methods and algorithms
- applications of game theory in theoretical computer science
- connections between theory of computation and physics (mostly theory of complex systems)
- logic and its connection with symbolic computation and computational complexity
- automated theorem proving (yes, we know it’s not really Theoretical Computer Science :))
- formal languages and its interrelation with XML processing
A list of venues that have recently accepted/published our papers includes International Colloquium on Automata, Languages and Programming, Journal of Symbolic Computation, Information and Computation, Theoretical Computer Science, Theory and Practice of Logic Programming, Mathematical Structures in Computer Science, International Colloquium on Theoretical Aspects of Computing, Symposium on Functional and Logic Programming, Satisfiability Conference, Symposium on Combinatorial Pattern Matching, International Symposium on Symbolic Computation in Software Science, Conference on Machines, Computation and Universality, International Conference on Language and Automata Theory and Applications, Information Processing Letters, Physica A., International Workshop on Asynchronous Cellular Automata and Asynchronous Discrete Models.

- April 2018: Our paper has been accepted to the proceedings of MCU’2018. Also, Gabi will serve as a member of the Program Committee of SOFSEM 2019.
- February 2018:
A new manuscript is out. Gabi’s and Adi’s journal version of the ICALP 2015 paper has appeared (ahead of print) in Information and Computation.
- November 2017:
- Congratulations to Mircea for (successfully) defending his Habilitation. This month Gabi is traveling to Szeged, to SWORDS 2017 workshop.
- October 2017:
Please consider submitting papers to the following conferences (whose Program Committees include Gabi): FOIKS 2018 (Budapest, Hungary) and MCU 2018 (Fontainebleau, France)
- September 2017:
Mircea has a new paper accepted for the Proceedings of LSFA 2017. Also SYNASC 2017 took place in our department.
- July 2017:
Gabi has just won a national PCE-IDEI grant.
- June 2017:
We have a new
paperpreprint coming out, “Computing a minimal partition of partial orders into heapable subsets”., written by two of us (Gabi, Cosmin), a masters student (Diana Diniș) together with Janos Balogh from the University of Szeged. It is not yet in final form, but a fisrt-version draft is available. Gabi is visiting Ioan Todincă at LIFO, Université d’Orleans, on an Erasmus+ grant.
- April 2017:
We are organizing DACS 2017 as a satellite workshop to SYNASC !
- October 2016:
Lots of things to report. SYNASC took place (again) at the end of September. Gabi’s ICALP 2015 paper was accepted to the special ICALP issue of Information and Computation. He ventured (again) in the territory of Statistical Physics of Complex Systems, with a paper co-authored with Babes-Bolyai University’s Zoltan Néda and several members of his research group, accepted to Physica A.
- July 2016: In the months passed since the last update, Gabi was an invited speaker at DCFS’2016 (invited paper here), a participant to the Sankt Petersburg Semester on Proof Complexity and ECCO’2016. The group is currently busy refereeing papers for SYNASC.
- March 2016: Gabi is busy organizing two workshops: DACS’2016, and the Computer Science Workshop at Diaspora Ştiinţifică.
- January 2016: A Happy New Year to all of you ! We are starting the new year on a strong note: Mircea’s paper A Rewrite-based Computational Model for Functional Logic Programming has been accepted to SCSS 2016, Seventh International Symposium on Symbolic Computation in Software Science.
- December 2015: Paper The Minimum Entropy Submodular Set Cover Problem coauthored by Gabi and Cosmin was accepted to the 10-th International Conference on Language and Automata Technology and Applications (LATA’2016). On the other hand Mircea has submitted a new paper for publication.
- November 2015: The first edition of the Timişoara-Szeged Theory Seminar took place at West University of Timişoara on November 26. A detailed schedule
is available .
- October 2015: Gabi will be an invited speaker at the 18th International Workshop on the Descriptive Complexity of Formal Systems (DCFS’2016)
- October 2017:
