Dear FOMers,

This is just to remind you that the submission deadline for
FSTTCS 2008 is July 7.  FSTTCS (Foundations of Software Technology
and Theoretical Computer Science) is an annual international
conference held in India. This year, it will be held in
Bangalore, India, from December 9 to December 11, 2008.
In the more than 25 years of existence, it has had a long tradition of
excellent invited talks and high quality submissions.  As an added
attraction, this year's conference is colocated with APLAS 2008
(Sixth Asian Symposium on Programming Languages and Systems).

In a new initiative towards an open system, FSTTCS is moving away
from LNCS.  The proceedings will take the form of a free, open,
electronic archive with access to all. In addition to being
permanently archived on ArXiV and other online servers, the
proceedings of the Conference will be hosted on the Dagstuhl
Research Online Publication Server (DROPS), with an ISBN number
provided by DROPS.

If you are in favour of open access for scientific publications,
this is an opportunity to contribute to the movement.  If you are
nervous about open access, you can be reassured by the experience
of STACS 2008, whose open access proceedings have been indexed by
all the major scientific indices.

Please do consider submitting a paper to the conference and
encourage your colleagues to do so as well.  The call for papers
with full details is available at
