CALL FOR PAPERS: Theoretical Aspects of Computer Sciences, 4-7 Mar 2015, Garching, GERMANY



Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original and unpublished 
research on theoretical aspects of computer science. Typical areas = 
include (but are not limited to):

- algorithms and data structures, including: parallel, distributed,
  approximation, and randomized algorithms, computational geometry,
   cryptography, algorithmic learning theory, algorithmic game theory,
   analysis of algorithms;
- automata and formal languages;
- computational complexity, parameterized complexity, randomness in
- logic in computer science, including: semantics, specification
   and verification, rewriting and deduction;
- current challenges, for example: natural computing, quantum computing,
   mobile and net computing.

Submission website opens: Jun 22, 2014
Submission deadline: Sep 21, 2014 (23:59:59 GMT/UTC)
Rebuttal period: Nov 15 - 17, 2014
Notification: Dec 5, 2014
Final version due: Jan 7, 2015
Symposium: Mar 4 - 7, 2015



Authors are invited to submit a draft of a full paper with at most 12 = 
pages (excluding the references section). 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. As 
= a novelty for STACS, there will also be a rebuttal period for authors. = 
Authors will receive the reviews of their submissions (via EasyChair) on 
Nov = 14/15 and have three days (Nov 15 - 17) to submit rebuttals (via 
EasyChair). = These rebuttals become part of the PC meeting, but entail no 
specific = responses.
