Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original and unpublished research on theoretical aspects of computer science.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):


Authors are invited to submit a draft of a full paper (5-12 pages, the title page must contain a classification of the topic covered, preferably using the list of topics above). Proofs omitted due to space constraints must be put into an appendix. Electronic submission is highly recommended. Detailed information is available on the web site . In case of problems with access to internet, it is possible to submit 6 copies of the draft (plus 1 copy of the appendix) and 15 copies of a one page abstract to the chairman of the program committee.

Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of the symposium (Lecture Notes in Computer Science, Springer-Verlag). Dual submission to other conferences with published proceedings is not allowed.


We expect to receive TMR grants from the EU commission to be able to support young researchers (age below 40 for female and below 35 for male) from EU countries or associated countries attending the conference. Researchers from Eastern- and Central-European countries can apply for a grant from the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG). Detailed informations are available via request on e-mail.
