Monday, June 21 – Friday, June 25, 2021
STOC 2021 will be part of a 5-day TheoryFest with an expanded program of STOC papers, poster sessions, and a broad cross-section of invited talks, workshops, and tutorials.
Important Dates

STOC paper submission deadline: November 6, 2020, 11:59pm EST

Submitted Papers Notification: by February 7, 2021

Workshops submission deadline: TBA

Deadline for final versions of accepted papers: TBA

Conference dates: June 21–25, 2021
STOC Paper Submission

Typical but not exclusive topics of interest for STOC papers include foundational areas such as algorithms and data structures, computational complexity, parallel and distributed algorithms, quantum computing, continuous and discrete optimization, randomness in computing, approximation algorithms, combinatorics and algorithmic graph theory, cryptography, computational geometry, algebraic computation, computational applications of logic, and algorithmic coding theory. Typical topics also include computation and foundational aspects of areas such as machine learning, economics, fairness, privacy, networks, data management, and biology. Papers that broaden the reach of the theory of computing, or raise important problems that can benefit from theoretical investigation and analysis, are encouraged.
