SIROCCO is devoted to the study of the interplay and trade-offs between the efficiency of algorithms and systems and the availability of information. This basic issue is common to many fields of multi party systems. SIROCCO has a tradition of interesting and productive scientific meetings in a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere, attracting leading researchers in a variety of fields which exhibit such interplay.


All accepted papers will be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series of Springer.


Original papers are solicited from all those areas where the interplay between complexity and communication takes place. In particular from: distributed computing, high-speed networks, interconnection networks, mobile computing, optical computing, parallel computing, sensor networks, wireless networks, and related areas.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • communication complexity
  • distributed algorithms and data structures
  • information dissemination
  • mobile agent computing
  • models of communication
  • network topologies
  • routing protocols
  • sense of direction
  • structural properties
