SUBMISSIONS

***********

Authors are invited to submit a draft of a full paper with at most 12 
pages. The usage of pdflatex and the LIPIcs style file (see below) are 
mandatory; no changes to font size, page geometry etc. are permitted. 
Submissions not in the correct format or submitted after the deadline will 
not be considered.

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.

Simultaneous submission to other conferences with published proceedings or 
to journals is not allowed. PC members are excluded from submitting. The 
submission site, which opens on June 15, 2013, is 
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=stacs2014

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 retain the rights over their work.

In addition, the proceedings will also be available as archives in the 
open access electronic repository HAL. With their submission, authors 
consent to sign a license authorizing the program committee chairs to 
organize the electronic publication of their paper, provided the paper is 
accepted. Further details are available on www.stacs-conf.org and will be 
on the conference website, http://stacs2014.sciencesconf.org/
