SUBMISSIONS
***********
Authors are invited to submit a draft of a full paper with at most 12
pages (STACS style or similar - e.g. LaTeX article style, 11pt
a4paper).  The title page must contain a classification of the topic
covered, preferably using the list of topics above. 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. Submissions deviating
from these guidelines risk rejection. Electronic submissions should be
formatted in PostScript or PDF.

Simultaneous submission to other conferences with published
proceedings is not allowed.

PROCEEDINGS
***********
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 will retain the rights over their work.  In
addition, the proceedings will also be available as archives in the
open access electronic repositories HAL and arXiv. With their
submission, authors consent to sign a license authorizing the program
committee chairs to organize the electronic publication of their paper
if it is accepted. Further details are available on www.stacs-conf.org
and on the conference website, stacs2011.de. Participants of the
conference will receive a USB-stick with an electronic version of the
proceedings.  It is also planned to publish in a journal a selection
of papers.
