Conference Location
Call For Papers
Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original and unpublished research on theoretical aspects of computer science. Typical areas include (but are not limited to):

    algorithms and data structures,
    including: design of parallel, distributed, approximation, parameterized and randomized algorithms; analysis of algorithms and combinatorics of data structures; computational geometry, cryptography, algorithmic learning theory, algorithmic game theory;
    automata and formal languages,
    including: algebraic and categorical methods, coding theory;
    complexity and computability,
    including: computational and structural complexity theory, parameterized complexity, randomness in computation;
    logic in computer science,
    including: finite model theory, database theory, semantics, specification verification, rewriting and deduction;
    current challenges,
    for example: natural computing, quantum computing, mobile and net computing, computational social choice.


Submissions can be uploaded to EasyChair:

Authors are invited to submit a draft of a full paper with at most 12 pages (excluding the references section).

The usage of pdflatex and the LIPIcs style file (see below) are mandatory; no changes to font size, page geometry, etc. are permitted. Submissions not in the correct format or submitted after the deadline will not be considered.

The paper should contain a succinct statement of the issues and of their motivation, a summary of the main results, and a brief explanation of their significance, accessible to non-specialist readers.

Proofs omitted due to space constraints must be put into an appendix, to be read by the program committee members at their discretion.

Simultaneous submission to other conferences with published proceedings or to journals is not allowed. PC members are excluded from submitting.

There will be a rebuttal period for authors. Authors will receive the reviews of their submissions (via EasyChair) on Nov 21 and have three days to submit rebuttals (via EasyChair). These rebuttals become part of the PC meeting, but entail no specific responses.


Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of the symposium. As usual, these proceedings will appear in the Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics (LIPIcs) series, based at Schloss Dagstuhl. This guarantees perennial, free and easy electronic access, while the authors retain the rights over their work. With their submission, authors consent to sign a license authorizing the program committee chairs to organize the electronic publication of their paper, provided the paper is accepted.
