ICTCS 2020

21st Italian Conference on Theoretical Computer Science

14-16 September 2020, Ischia, Italy

*** Participants and Speakers Instructions***

We are going to use Zoom for all the sessions and meetings. In case you are not a Zoom user you will first need to download and install the Zoom client software from: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362033-Getting-Started-on-Windows-and-Mac

The Zoom meeting ID and password will be sent to all the participants by email, and it should not change during the conference.

Please use your full name (you may change your name once you have joined).

The program of the Conference with links to the papers is available at the following link Program.

The talks will be live-streamed. You must prepare slides and have a microphone. You can use a webcam to film yourself, but this is optional.

If you are a speaker or a chair, please, connect at least 5 min before the beginning of your session. Once you are there, we will make you "co-host" to enable you to share your slides. If you're not made co-host, please signal yourself by (private) chat message or "raise hand".

If you are a speaker send us an email at ictcs2020@gmail.com indicating the session and the title your talk.

Recall that contributed talks are:

  • 25min (20+5) for regular papers

  • 20min (15-5) for communications

  • 60min (55+5) for invited talks.

It could also be a good idea to invite your co-authors, if you have any, to attend your talk - they could for example answer live questions in the Zoom chat or on the Discord server.

We have also activated a discord server named ICTCS2020 that can be used for meetings during breaks. The server is reachable using the following link


To allow more participants to view your talk (for example those in a different timezone), we will offer you the possibility of recording your talk (only with your consent). Our idea is to record the talk during the conference in Zoom and, later, share the link only with the participants of ICTCS 2020. The link will be available for a limited time only.

We also offer you to make a short test of the Zoom system, on Sunday, September 13 (17:00-18:00). Please contact us at ictcs2020@gmail.com to set up an appointment.

ICTCS 2020

The Italian Conference on Theoretical Computer Science (ICTCS) is the conference of the Italian Chapter of the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science. Its 21st edition will be held in Ischia (Italy) on September 14-16, 2020.

The Conference aims at being a forum of exchange of ideas and at also providing an environment for young researchers to gain experience in presenting their work, to broaden their outlook on the subject, and to benefit from contact with established researchers. Computer scientists from outside Italy are also welcome to submit papers and attend the Conference.

Contributions on all aspects of theoretical computer science, including algorithms, algorithmic game theory, automata theory, complexity theory, concurrency, cryptography, formal methods, languages, logics, quantum computing, security, semantics, system biology, types, are being sought.
