Authors should submit an extended abstract (not a full paper).
An abstract should start with the title of the paper, each author's
name, affiliation, and e-mail address, followed by a one-paragraph
summary of the results to be presented. This should then be followed
by a technical exposition of the main ideas and techniques used to
achieve these results, including motivation and a clear comparison
with related work. The abstract should not exceed 10 single-spaced pages on
letter-size paper, using reasonable margins and at least 11-point
font. If the authors believe that more details are
essential to substantiate the main claims of the paper, they may include
a clearly marked appendix that will be read at the discretion of the
program committee. Abstracts deviating significantly from these
guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.
According to SIGACT
policy, abstract material which has been
previously published in another conference proceedings or journal (or
which is scheduled for publication prior to STOC) will not be
considered for acceptance at STOC. In addition, SIGACT policy does
not allow simultaneous submissions of the same (or essentially the
same) abstract material to another conference with a published
