July 1–3, 2013, Ischia, Italy
SIROCCO is devoted to the study of communication and knowledge in multi-processor systems from both the qualitative and quantitative viewpoints. Special emphasis is given to innovative approaches and fundamental understanding, in addition to efforts to optimize current designs. SIROCCO has a tradition of interesting and productive scientific meetings in a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere, attracting leading researchers in a variety of fields in which communication and knowledge play a significant role. This year, SIROCCO is held in Ischia, a beautiful island in Italy, not far from Napoli.
Original papers are solicited from all areas of study of local structural knowledge and global communication and computational complexities. Among the typical areas are distributed computing, communication networks, game theory, parallel computing, social networks, mobile computing (including autonomous robots), peer to peer systems, communication complexity, fault tolerant graph theories, and randomized/probabilistic issues in networks. Keeping up with the tradition of SIROCCO, new areas are always welcome.
A Best Student Paper will be awarded. A paper is eligible for the Best Student Paper Award if one or more authors are full-time students at the time of submission. To indicate that a submission is eligible, please add the phrase "Eligible for the Best Student Paper Award" in the abstract. The program commitee may decline to make this awards or split it.
Papers are to be submitted electronically (through EasyChair). Submission instructions and guidelines are available at the conference web page. Authors are invited to submit their work in one of the three acceptable formats: novel research contributions, position papers, and surveys. Original research papers must contain results that have not previously appeared and have not been concurrently submitted to a journal or conference with published proceedings. In all cases, any partial overlap with any published or concurrently submitted paper must be clearly indicated.
Submissions are limited to 12 single-column pages on letter/A4-size paper (using at least 11 point font, 1 inch margins, standard line spacing). This includes figures, but excludes references and an optional appendix (to be read at the program committee’s discretion).
As in previous years, the proceedings of SIROCCO 2013 will be published by Springer-Verlag as a volume of the LNCS series.
Selected papers will be invited to a special issue of the journal Theoretical Computer Science.
