first page of RP proceedings

For the one month starting on September 24th, all participants have a free access to all the papers in the LNCS proceedings of RP 2018. More info on the proceedings page.


The Laboratory of Computer Science and Systems at Aix-Marseille University organizes the 12th International Conference on Reachability Problems (RP'18). This event takes place on the campus of Saint-Charles, close to the train station and to the old harbour of Marseille.

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).

A selection of articles among the contributed papers will be invited to a special issue of Fundamenta Informaticae.


The conference 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 campus of Saint-Charles, close to the train station and to the old harbour of Marseille.
