We are pleased to announce the 3rd Symposium on Algorithmic
Foundations of Dynamic Networks (SAND).

The objective of SAND is to provide a primary venue for the
presentation and discussion of research on fundamental aspects of
computing in dynamic networks. Focusing on the theory, design,
analysis, and application of computing in dynamic networks, SAND seeks
high-quality results characterized by a marked algorithmic aspect that
shed insights on the computability landscape for dynamic environments
or that can be foundational for practical and impactful systems. SAND
aims at bringing together researchers from Computer Science and
related areas such as Mathematics, Complex Systems, Sociology,
Transportations, Robotics, Physics, and Biology to present and discuss
original research at the intersection of Algorithms and Dynamic
Networks and Systems.

We encourage contributions from all viewpoints, including theory and
practice, addressing or being motivated by the role of dynamics in
computing. We welcome both conceptual and technical contributions, as
well as novel ideas and new problems that will inspire the community
and facilitate the further growth of the area.

Furthermore, to foster the emergence and consolidation of our new
community, the conference will feature several open problem sessions
and dedicated slots for collaboration among the attendees.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Temporal graphs
- Geometric dynamic models
- Distributed computation in dynamic networks
- Reconfigurable and swarm robotics, programmable matter, DNA self-assembly
- Population protocols and chemical reaction networks
- Dynamic graph algorithms
- Multilayer, peer-to-peer and overlay networks
- Randomness in dynamic networks
- Continuous models of dynamic networks
- Wireless networks, mobile computing, autonomous agents
- Streaming models
- Boolean networks
- Information spreading, gossiping, epidemics
- IoT, Cloud, Edge/Fog computing
- Computability and Complexity within dynamic networks
- Offline and online algorithms for dynamic networks
- Learning approaches for dynamic networks
- Complex systems, social and transportation networks
- Fault-tolerance, network self-organization and formation
- New models for dynamic networks
- Bio-inspired, physical, and chemical dynamic models

Paper Submission

Papers should be submitted electronically through Easychair

A submission must be original research and report on novel results
that have not appeared or been concurrently submitted to a journal or
a conference with published proceedings. Submissions must be in
English in pdf format. There is no page limit and authors are
encouraged to use the "full version" of their paper as the submission.
However, the article should contain within the *initial 12 pages*
a clear presentation of the merits of the paper, including a
discussion of the paper's importance within the context of prior work
and a description of the key technical and conceptual ideas used to
achieve its main claims. Submissions must be anonymous, without any
author names, affiliations, or email addresses.

Instructions for Double-Blind Review

The reviewing process is double-blind, the authors’ names must not be
included in the paper, and the writing of the manuscript should be
done in such a way to not de-anonymize authors (e.g., instead of, our
result [1], they should use, the result of [1]). We assume that
reviewers do not actively try to recognize the authors. Therefore,
authors are allowed to publish their results on pre-print services
before or at any point of the submission/reviewing process.
Non-anonymous submissions will be rejected.


The conference proceedings will be published by LIPIcs. The final
version of the paper must be formatted following the LIPIcs guidelines
( Papers
accepted in full will have 15 pages in the final proceedings
(excluding references).

Extended and revised versions of selected papers will be considered
for a special issue of Theoretical Computer Science (TCS).

For every accepted paper, at least one of the authors must fully
register and present the paper during the conference and according to
the conference program. Any paper accepted but not presented will be
withdrawn from the final proceedings.


All papers are eligible for the best paper award. Papers co-authored
by full-time students may also be eligible for the best student paper
award. For a paper to be considered for the best student paper award,
the nominated authors should be full time students at the time of
submission and should have a significant contribution to the paper. In
case the authors think that their paper is eligible for the best
student paper award, they should clearly indicate this on the first
page of their submission and briefly justify.
