Call For Papers

ICALP 2015

The 42nd International Colloquium on Automata, Languages, and Programming (ICALP 2015) will take place in the period 6-10 July 2015 in Kyoto, Japan. The conference will co-locate with LICS 2015, the 30th ACM/IEEE Symposium on Logic in Computer Science. The ICALP 2015 conference chair is Kazuo Iwama (Kyoto University). ICALP is the main conference and annual meeting of the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS). As usual, the main conference will be preceded and/or followed by a series of workshops.

Papers presenting original research on all aspects of theoretical computer science are sought. Typical but not exclusive topics of interest are:

Track A: Algorithms, Complexity and Games

Algorithmic Game Theory
Approximation Algorithms
Combinatorial Optimization
Combinatorics in Computer Science
Computational Biology
Computational Complexity
Computational Geometry
Data Structures
Design and Analysis of Algorithms
Machine Learning
Parallel, Distributed and External Memory Computing
Randomness in Computation
Quantum Computing

Track B: Logic, Semantics, Automata and Theory of Programming

Algebraic and Categorical Models
Automata, Games, and Formal Languages
Emerging and Non-standard Models of Computation
Databases, Semi-Structured Data and Finite Model Theory
Principles and Semantics of Programming Languages
Logic in Computer Science, Theorem Proving and Model Checking
Models of Concurrent, Distributed, and Mobile Systems
Models of Reactive, Hybrid and Stochastic Systems
Program Analysis and Transformation
Specification, Refinement, Verification and Synthesis

Author notification: Wednesday, 15 April 2015
Final manuscript due: Thursday, 30 April 2015

Deadlines are firm; late submissions will not be considered.
ICALP proceedings are published in the Springer-Verlag ARCoSS (Advanced Research in Computing and Software Science) subseries of LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science).

Submission Guidelines

Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract of no more than 12 pages, including references, in LNCS style presenting original research on the theory of Computer Science. All submissions will be electronic via the EasyChair page for the conference, with three tracks (A, B and C):
Submissions should be made to the appropriate track of the conference. No prior publication or simultaneous submission to other publication outlets (either a conference or a journal) is allowed. Submissions must adhere to the specified format and length. Submissions that are too long or formatted incorrectly may be rejected immediately. All the technical details that are necessary for a proper scientific evaluation of a submission must be included in a clearly-labelled appendix, to be consulted at the discretion of program committee members. This includes, in particular, the proofs of all the key theorems in a paper.
Should I submit my paper to Track A or Track C?
While the scope of Tracks A and B are generally well understood given their long history, the situation for Track C may be less obvious. In particular, some clarifications may be helpful regarding areas of potential overlap, especially between Tracks A and C.

The aim for Track C is to be the leading venue for theory papers truly motivated by networking applications, and/or proposing theoretical results relevant to real networking, certified analytically, but not necessarily tested practically. The motivation for the track was the lack of good venues for theory papers motivated by applications in networking. On the one hand, the good networking conferences typically ask for extended experiments and/or simulations, while the TCS community is hardly able to do such experiments or simulations. On the other hand, the good conferences on algorithms tend to judge a paper based only on its technical difficulty and on its significance from an algorithmic perspective, which may not be the same as when judging the paper from the perspective of impact on networks.

Several areas of algorithmic study of interest to track C have a broad overlap with track A. Graph algorithmics can belong in either, though if the work is not linked to networking, it is more appropriate in track A. Algorithmic game theory is another area of major overlap. Aspects involving complexity, the computation of equilibria and approximations, belong more in Track A, while results with applications in auctions, networks and some aspects of mechanism design belong in Track C.

Finally, it should be noted that algorithms and complexity of message-passing based distributed computing belong squarely in track C, while certain other aspects of distributed computing do not fall under its scope.
Best Paper Awards
As in previous editions of ICALP, there will be best paper and best student paper awards for each track of the conference. In order to be eligible for a best student paper award, a paper should be authored only by students and should be marked as such upon submission.
