=== Scope ==========

We invite research submisions in the general area of Theory of
Computing, including the
following (non-exhaustive) list:

Data Structures and algorithms
Combinatorial Optimization
Formal languages and Combinatorics on Words
Graph-theoretic and Combinatorial methods in Computer Science
Algorithmic paradigms, including distributed, online,
approximation, probabilistic, game-theoretic algorithms
Computational Complexity Theory, including structural complexity,
boolean complexity, communication complexity, average-case complexity,
derandomization and property testing
Logical approaches to complexity, including finite model theory
Algorithmic and computational learning theory
Aspects of computability theory, including computability in
analysis and algorithmic information theory
Proof complexity
Computational social choice and game theory
New computational paradigms: CNN computing, quantum, holographic
and other non-standard approaches to computability
Randomized methods, random graphs, threshold phenomena and
typical-case complexity
Automata theory and other formal models, particularly in relation
to formal verification methods such as model checking and runtime
Applications of theory, including wireless and sensor networks,
computational biology and computational economics
Experimental algorithmics

=== Research Papers ===

Submitted research papers must contain original research results not submitted
and not published elsewhere.

SYNASC has four categories of submissions:
* Regular papers describing fully completed research results (up to 8 pages
in the two-columns paper style).
* System descriptions and experimental papers describing implementation
results of experimental data, with a link to the reported results (up to 4
pages in the two-columns paper style).
* Work in progress papers, describing ongoing work and/or preliminary
results (up to 4 pages in the two-columns paper style).
* Posters, describing ongoing work and research challenges of PhD students
(up to 2 pages in the two-columns paper style).

Both the abstract and the full paper should be submitted electronically through

Research papers that are accepted and presented at the symposium will be
collected as post-proceedings published by Conference Publishing Service
(CPS) (included in IEEE Xplore) and will be submitted for indexing in ISI Web
of Science, DBLP, SCOPUS.

* Contributions to be spread via DMANET are submitted to
* Replies to a message carried on DMANET should NOT be
* addressed to DMANET but to the original sender. The
* original sender, however, is invited to prepare an
* update of the replies received and to communicate it
* via DMANET.
