CALL FOR PAPERS: "Structural Information and Communication Complexity", 26-29 Jun 2011, Poland

http://www.sirocco2011.org/

Preliminary call for papers SIROCCO 2011 - 18th International Colloquium on Structural Information and Communication Complexit, Gdansk (Poland)


Important dates
===============

Submission deadline:         March 10, 2011
Author notification:         April 15, 2011
Camera-ready submission:     April 30, 2011
______________________________________________________________________

Theme
=====

SIROCCO is devoted to the study of communication and knowledge in multi-processor systems from both the qualitative and quantitative viewpoints. Special emphasis is given to innovative approaches and fundamental understanding, in addition to efforts to optimize current designs.


Conference
==========

SIROCCO has a tradition of interesting and productive scientific meetings in a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere, attracting leading researchers in a variety of fields in which communication and knowledge play a significant role. This year, SIROCCO is held in Gdansk, a 1000-year old city on the Baltic coast in northern Poland, with medieval tenements overlooking the Motlawa River.


Scope
=====

Original papers are solicited from all areas of study of local structural knowledge and global communication and computational complexities. Among the typical areas are distributed computing, communication networks, game theory, parallel computing, social networks, mobile computing (including autonomous robots), peer to peer systems, communication complexity, fault tolerant graph theories, and randomized/probabilistic issues in networks. Keeping with the tradition of SIROCCO, new areas are always welcome.


SIROCCO Award
=============

The Prize for Innovation In Distributed Computing is awarded annually in the SIROCCO conference to recognize individuals whose research contributions had a major impact on the understanding of the relationships between information and efficiency in decentralized computing. Only authors of papers that were published in SIROCCO are eligible to receive the award. More details are available in the SIROCCO 2011 web site.


Invited speakers
================

   * Colin Cooper (King's College London, UK)
   * The recipient of the Prize for Innovation In Distributed Computing ______________________________________________________________________

Submission
==========

Full papers (12 pages + appendix) are to be submitted electronically, following the guidelines available on the conference web page. The deadline for submitting a paper is *March 10*. Notification of acceptance will be sent out by April 15, and the camera-ready papers are due on April 30.
