Call For Papers
The 52nd Annual ACM Symposium on the Theory of Computing (STOC 2020)​,sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Algorithms and Computation Theory(​SIGACT​), will be held in Chicago, IL, USA. STOC will be part of Theory Fest, anexpanded program of invited talks, tutorials, poster sessions, and workshops that willtake place from ​Monday, June 22 ​to ​Friday, June 26, 2020.

Papers presenting new and original research on the theory of computation are sought.Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: algorithms and data structures,computational complexity, randomness in computing, algorithmic graph theory andcombinatorics, approximation algorithms, cryptography, computational learning theory,economics and computation, parallel and distributed algorithms, quantum computing,algorithmic coding theory, computational geometry, computational applications of logic,optimization, algebraic algorithms, and theoretical aspects of areas such as networks,privacy, computational biology, and databases. Papers that extend the reach of thetheory of computing, or raise important problems that can benefit from theoreticalinvestigation and analysis, are encouraged. The program committee will make everyeffort to consider a broad range of areas.

Submission format:​ Submissions should start with a title page consisting of the title ofthe paper; each author's name, affiliation, and email address; and an abstract of 1-2 paragraphs summarizing the paper's contributions. There is no page limit and authorsare encouraged to use the "full version" of their paper as the submission. The submission should contain, ​within the initial ten pages ​following the title page, a clear presentation of the merits of the paper, including a discussion of the paper's importancewithin the context of prior work, and a description of the key technical and conceptualcontributions of the paper. The submission should be addressed to a broad spectrum oftheoretical computer science researchers. Proofs must be provided which can enablethe main mathematical claims of the paper to be fully verified. Although there is nobound on the length of a submission, material other than the abstract, references, andthe first ten pages following the title page will be read at the committee's discretion. Authors are encouraged to put the references at the very end of the submission. The submission should be typeset using 11-point or larger fonts, in a single-column,single-space (between lines) format, with ample spacing throughout and 1-inch marginsall around, on letter-size (8 1/2 x 11 inch) paper. Submissions deviating significantlyfrom these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.

Submission Instructions:​ Authors are required to submit their papers electronically, in PDF format (without security restrictions on copying or printing). A link to the submissionserver will be available by early October.

Authors are encouraged to make full versions of their submissions freely accessible inan online repository such as the ​arXiv​, ​ECCC​, or the ​Cryptology ePrint archive​. It isexpected that authors of accepted papers will make their full papers, with completeproofs, publicly available by the camera-ready deadline.

Prior Publication and Simultaneous Submissions:​ The conference will follow ACM’spolicy on prior publication and simultaneous submissions that can be found ​here​. Workthat has been previously published in another conference proceedings or journal, orwhich is scheduled for publication prior to July 2020, will not be considered foracceptance at STOC 2020. Work submitted to STOC 2020 may not be under review foranother conference with published proceedings or a journal, until the acceptance orrejection decisions for STOC 2020  are sent to the authors. The only exception to thispolicy are prior or simultaneous publications appearing in the Science and Naturejournals. The program committee may consult with program chairs of other (past orfuture) conferences to find out about closely related submissions.
