[DMANET] CFP: STACS 2017 - 34th International Symposium on Theoretical Aspects of Computer Science


STACS 2017 - Second Call for Papers

34th International Symposium on Theoretical Aspects of Computer Science
March 8-11, 2017, Hannover, Germany

Submission deadline: Sep 25, 2016


Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original and unpublished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, 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
and verification, rewriting and deduction;
- current challenges,
for example: natural computing, quantum computing, mobile and net

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.

The submissions site is:


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.
