Leibniz International Proceedings In Informatics: LIPIcs


Dear colleagues,

Following an initiative of the conferences STACS (http://stacs-conf.org) and FSTTCS (http://www.fsttcs.org/), to opt for non-commercial, electronic proceedings, the German conference center Schloss Dagstuhl Leibniz Center for Informatics (LCI) has decided to establish a new series of conference proceedings called Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics (LIPIcs,http://www.dagstuhl.de/en/publications/lipics/). The objective of this series is to publish the proceedings of high-quality conferences in all fields of computer science. An Editorial Board is being instituted to oversee the selection of the conferences to be included in this series. Its members currently are: Susanne Albers (Freiburg), Michael Mitzenmacher (Harvard), Madhavan Mukund (Chennai), V. Vinay (Bangalore), Wolfgang Thomas (Aachen), Pascal Weil (Bordeaux), Reinhard Wilhelm (Scientific Director, Dagstuhl). The Editorial Board will be extended upon the application of conferences in fields not yet represented in it.

Details about joining this series, about the services it offers and about the editorial process can be found on-line, http://www.dagstuhl.de/lipics_announce.pdf. The main features are as follows: The proceedings in the LIPIcs series will be published electronically and will be accessible freely and universally on the internet, keeping the copyrights with the authors, and under an open access license guaranteeing free dissemination. To meet the cost of electronic publication, a one-time fee for each proceedings volume will be required from the conference organizers. This fee, intended to cover the costs of LCI, will be kept to a minimum (presently less than 750 euros), thanks in particular to a sharing of the workload between LCI and the conference organizers.

The LCI and the LIPIcs Editorial Board wish to attract the best conferences in computer science. We encourage you to publicize this initiative amongst your colleagues, and I will be happy to answer your questions if you have any.

With best regards,

Pascal Weil
