VenueMontevideo, Uruguay Uruguay



Topics/Call fo Papers

A series of Symposia in Theoretical Computer Science was launched in 1992, to be held in Latin America: LATIN (Latin American Theoretical INformatics). This is the eleventh event of the series, after Sao Paulo, Brazil (1992), Valparaiso, Chile (1995), Campinas, Brazil (1998), Punta del Este, Uruguay (2000), Cancun, Mexico (2002), Buenos Aires, Argentina (2004), Valdivia, Chile (2006), Buzios, Brazil (2008), Oaxaca, Mexico (2010), and Arequipa, Peru (2012).
We seek papers presenting original research in theoretical computer science, including, but not limited to: algorithms (approximation, online, randomized, algorithmic game theory, etc.), analytic combinatorics and analysis of algorithms, automata theory and formal languages, coding theory and data compression, combinatorial algorithms, combinatorial optimization, combinatorics and graph theory, complexity theory, computational algebra, computational biology, computational geometry, computational number theory, cryptology, databases and information retrieval, data structures, formal methods and security, Internet and the web, parallel and distributed computing, pattern matching, programming language theory, and random structures.
Important Dates
Paper submission: September 22, 2013
Notification: December 2, 2013
Final version: December 20, 2013
Invited Speakers
Gilles Barthe, IMDEA Software Institute
Ian Munro, University of Waterloo
Gonzalo Navarro, Universidad de Chile
Ronitt Rubinfeld, MIT
Robert Sedgewick, Princeton University
Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract in English no longer than 12 pages (including the bibliography) on letter-size paper using at least 11-point font in Springer LNCS format. If more space is needed, a clearly marked appendix, to be read at the discretion of the program committee, may be included if desired. Simultaneous submission of papers to any other conference with published proceedings, as well as the submission of previously published papers, is not allowed. Papers must be written in English.
As for previous events, we expect the accepted extended abstracts to be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.
Imre Simon Test-of-Time Paper Award
Starting in 2012, an award is given to the LATIN paper deemed to be most influential among all those published at least ten years prior to the current edition of the conference. Papers published in the LATIN proceedings up to and including 2004 are eligible for the 2014 award.
Montevideo, a port city, the capital of Uruguay and home to its largest University, the Universidad de la República, is a perfect destination for travelers looking for a relaxing stroll past colonial era buildings and along beautiful beaches. The Ciudadela Gateway, the only remaining section of the wall that once surrounded the entire city, now serves as the entrance to Ciudad Vieja, Montevideo's oldest neighborhood. Home to churches, museums, and theaters, at night the area comes alive with nightclubs playing Tango and Candombe music for crowds of dancers.
Travel and local information will be published in this site in the next months.
