Note: Student participation will be sponsored by IA-FraMCoS.


All accepted papers, whose authors have registered will be available on line at least one week prior to the conference. This will enable participants to preview papers in a timely manner.

At registration, a detailed printed program will be made available during registration and will be available on line in this page.

General Assembly

Contrarily to previous conferences, the Generl Assembly will be held on Monday late afternoon to maximize participation.

Tentative agenda includes

  • "State of FraMCoS".
  • Financial situation.
  • Membership.
  • Vote for the new Bylaws (two-thirds of the number of members present at a General Meeting needed to approve).
  • Vote of 4 new Board Members.
  • Open Discussion.

The Venue

The conference will be held on the Clark Kerr Campus of the University of California, Berkeley (located approximately 1 km from the main campus).

The conference site is accessible through public transportation from both San Francisco (SFO) and Oakland (OAK) international airports using the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system or by car.

Conference Secretariat

Questions about FraMCoS-9 can be addressed to the Conference Secretariat via secretariat at
