19th International Colloquium on Structural Information and Communication Complexity

June 30 - July 2, Reykjavík, Iceland

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.


The proceedings are available now, published as part of the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). The online version can be accessed hereA wonderful review of the conference by Heger Arfaoui appeared in SIGACT News June 2013.


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
