  • Algorithms and Data Structures
  • Algorithmic Graph Theory and Combinatorics
  • Approximation Algorithms
  • Automata and Formal Languages
  • Combinatorial Optimization
  • Communication Complexity
  • Computational Biology
  • Computational Complexity
  • Computational Geometry
  • Computational Learning Theory
  • Cryptography and Security
  • Game Theory and Mechanism Design
  • Logic in Computer Science
  • Model Theory, Modal and Temporal Logics
  • Models of Concurrent and Distributed Systems
  • Models of Timed, Reactive, Hybrid and Stochastic Systems
  • Parallel, Distributed and Online Algorithms
  • Parameterized Complexity
  • Principles and Semantics of Programming Languages
  • Program Analysis and Transformation
  • Proof Complexity
  • Quantum Computing
  • Randomness in Computing
  • Specification, Verification, and Synthesis
  • Theorem Proving, Decision Procedures, and Model Checking
  • Theoretical Aspects of Mobile and High-Performance Computing

Submissions will be in electronic form via EasyChair. There is no page limit, however material other than the abstract, references, and the first 12 pages is considered as supplementary. A submission must contain within its first 12 pages a clear presentation of the merits of the paper. The submission should be in single-column format, use at least 11-point font, and have standard margins and spacing between lines. Simultaneous sub- missions to journals or other conferences with published proceedings are disallowed.

Accepted papers will be published as proceedings of the conference in the Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics (LIPIcs), under a CC-BY license, as a free, open, electronic archive with access to all. Instructions for formatting camera-ready versions will be communicated to the authors of accepted papers. Authors will retain full rights over their work. For an accepted paper to be included in the proceedings, one of the authors must commit to presenting the paper at the conference.
