                          CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

                     17th International Conference on
           Relational and Algebraic Methods in Computer Science
                               RAMiCS 2018

        29 October to 1 November 2018, Groningen, The Netherlands


Recurrent topics of RAMiCS conferences, held since 1994, include semiring- and
lattice-based structures such as relation algebras and Kleene algebras, their
connections with program logics and other logics, their use in theories of
computing, their formalisation with theorem provers, and their application
to modelling and reasoning about computing systems and processes.
