[DMANET] Call for Papers STACS 2015

(apologies for duplicates)



32nd International Symposium on Theoretical Aspects of Computer Science

March 4 - 7, 2015, Garching near Munich, Germany

Submission Deadline: Sep 21, 2014 (23:59:59 GMT/UTC)


Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original and unpublished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: parallel, distributed,
approximation, and randomized algorithms, computational geometry,
cryptography, algorithmic learning theory, algorithmic game theory,
analysis of algorithms;
- automata and formal languages;
- computational complexity, parameterized complexity, randomness in
- logic in computer science, including: semantics, specification
and verification, rewriting and deduction;
- current challenges, for example: natural computing, quantum computing,
mobile and net computing.

Submission website opens: Jun 22, 2014
Submission deadline: Sep 21, 2014 (23:59:59 GMT/UTC)
Rebuttal period: Nov 15 - 17, 2014
Notification: Dec 5, 2014
Final version due: Jan 7, 2015
Symposium: Mar 4 - 7, 2015

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. As a
novelty for STACS, there will also be a rebuttal period for authors. Authors
will receive the reviews of their submissions (via EasyChair) on Nov 14/15
and have three days (Nov 15 - 17) to submit rebuttals (via EasyChair). These
rebuttals become part of the PC meeting, but entail no specific responses.

The submission site, which opens on Jun 22, 2014, is
