The Greek Computer Society (EPY) and the Department of Computer & Communication Engineering of University of Thessaly, are organizing the 10th Panhellenic Conference on Informatics (PCI 2005) at Volos, Greece, during 11-13 of November 2005. The PCI is a biannual event established by EPY. The 1st conference took place at Athens (1984), the 2nd at Thessaloniki (1988), the 3rd at Athens (1991), the 4th at Patras (1993), the 5th at Athens (1995), the 6th at Athens (1997), the 7th at Ioannina (1999), the 8th at Nicosia/Cyprus (2001), and the 9th at Thessaloniki (2003).

The conference will run in parallel sessions, with invited talks, research & case study tracks, work-shops tutorials and panels. Authors are invited to submit:

research papers in any general area of Computer Science & Engineering:
- Data Bases, Work Flow and Data mining -Algorithms and Complexity
-Computer and Sensor Networks -Computer/Sensor Hardware and Architecture
-Operating Systems -Human-Computer Interaction
-Graphics, Visualization, Multimedia -AI / Knowledge bases
-Image and Video Processing -Management of Energy Grids

April 11, 2005: Abstract submission
April 25, 2005: Full Paper submission
May 30, 2005: Notification of Acceptance/Rejection
June 20, 2005: Final, Camera Ready Pa-pers, Due

Papers must be submitted electronically in Postscript, PDF, or RTF/DOC format at the conference website: http://papers4pci.inf.uth.gr. Manuscripts should not exceed 5000 words, and must follow the Springer LNCS format. Additionally, authors first should electronically submit a paper abstract containing: title, author name(s), abstract, keywords and designated track (Research or Case Studies Track). Also, authors should declare the designated track in the first page of their manuscript. Although style files will be available for the camera-ready final submission in both MS Word and Latex2e, authors are encouraged to submit papers using Latex2e. Submitted papers will undergo a peer review process, coordinated by the Program Committee Chair.

The conference is mainly a forum for information exchange between Greek scientists from Greece, Cyprus and Diaspora with international participation. So, English will be the official language of the conference (including presentations and proceedings). Non Greek-speaking authors are encouraged to submit papers and participate in the conference, as well.

Efforts are being made for publishing a volume with the accepted papers in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series by Springer-Verlag.

Proposals for panels and tutorials should be sent to the address epy10@inf.uth.gr before April 25, 2005. Proposals for panels should contain a title, a list of four to five speakers with their affiliation and an extended summary (1000 words) on the topic. Proposals for tutorials should contain a title, an extended summary (1000 words), a short CV and an indication of the targeted audience.
