Following the Fourth International Conference on Mathematical Aspects of Computer and Information Sciences (MACIS 2011) that was held in Beijing, China, on October 19-21, 2011, we invite submissions to a special issue of the journal Mathematics in Computer Science (MCS). We solicit high-quality original research papers with journal-style extent of contribution. The special issue's main focus will be work presented at MACIS 2011, but this call is open to further submissions close to two conference themes

Potential contributors may contact the guest editors to discuss the suitability of topics and papers.
