11th International Workshop on Reachability Problems

      7 - 9 September 2017, London, UK


The Department of Computer Science at Royal Holloway, University of London organizes the 11th International Workshop on Reachability Problems (RP'17). This event takes place on the campus of Royal Holloway in the historic town of Egham, which lies between London and Windsor.

Papers presenting original contributions related to reachability problems in different computational models and systems are being sought.

This will also be the occasion to review recent breakthroughs by renowned invited experts and survey emerging trends and emphasize on key open challenges. Participants are kindly encouraged to discuss core scientific issues that need to be further tackled.

Conference proceedings will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).

Selected papers of formal and informal presentations will be invited to a special issue of a recognized journal.


The workshop is specifically aimed at gathering together scholars from diverse disciplines and backgrounds interested in reachability problems that appear in

  • ●   Algebraic structures
  • ●   Computational models
  • ●   Hybrid systems
  • ●   Logic and Verification

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to): reachability problems in infinite state systems, rewriting systems, dynamical and hybrid systems; reachability problems in logic and verification; reachability analysis in different computational models, counter timed/ cellular/ communicating automata; Petri nets; computational aspects of algebraic structures (semigroups, groups and rings); frontiers between decidable and undecidable reachability problems; predictability in iterative maps and new computational paradigms.


The conference will take place on the Royal Holloway campus, listed as one of the most beautiful in the world. Talks will take place in the iconic Founders Building.
