Call For Papers

General Information

The 50th ACM Symposium on Theory of Computing (STOC 2018) is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Algorithms and Computation Theory and will be held in Los Angeles, California Monday, June 25 - Friday, June 29, 2018.

STOC 2018 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. This will include a special celebration for the 50th anniversary of the founding of SIGACT and STOC, which was first held in the Los Angeles area.

Important Dates

STOC Paper Submission Deadline: November 3, 2017

Submitted Papers Notification: February 9, 2018

Final STOC Paper Versions Due: April 2, 2018.

Conference Dates: June 25-29, 2018
STOC Paper Submission

Typical but not exclusive topics of interest for STOC papers include: algorithms and data structures, computational complexity, cryptography, privacy, computational geometry, algorithmic graph theory and combinatorics, optimization, randomness in computing, approximation algorithms, parallel and distributed computation, machine learning, applications of logic, algorithmic algebra and coding theory, computational biology, computational game theory, quantum computing, and theoretical aspects of areas such as robotics, databases, information retrieval, and networks. Papers that broaden the reach of theory, or raise important problems that can benefit from theoretical investigation and analysis, are encouraged.
Poster Sessions

In addition to talks, all accepted STOC papers will be presented in evening poster sessions where there will be an opportunity to talk with authors about their papers, accompanied by light refreshments.
