STOC 2020: Call for Workshops

Important Dates

Submission deadline: March 9th, 2020
Notification:March 23rd, 2020
Workshop Day: Friday, June 26th, 2020

STOC 2020 will hold a workshop day on Friday, June 26th, 2020. We invite groups of interested researchers to submit workshop proposals.

The STOC 2020 Workshop Day provides an informal forum for researchers to discussion important research questions, directions and challenges in the field. Workshops often serve the important purpose of introducing researchers to new areas and agendas. We also encourage workshops that focus on connections between theoretical computer science and other areas.

Format: We have room for four half-day workshops running in parallel in the morning and another four half-day workshops running in parallel in the afternoon. We will also consider proposals for full day workshops.

Proposal Submission

Workshop and tutorial proposals should, ideally, fit within two pages. Please include a list of names and email addresses of the organizers, a brief description of the topic and the goals of the workshop, and the format (overview talks, invited talks, contributed talks, poster session, panel discussion, etc) and proposed or tentatively confirmed speakers if known. We encourage proposals to directly address how the topics will fit together and how the format will help researchers, not already acquainted with the subarea, learn about it. Please also indicate the preferred length of time – half day (3 hours) or full day (6 hours). If your proposal is accepted and you wish to solicit contributed talks, we can link to your call-for-contributions from the STOC 2020 page. Feel free to contact the cochairs of the Workshop Day directly at the email address below if you have any questions.

Submission Instructions

Submission Instructions: Proposals should be submitted by March 9th, 2020 via email to stoc2020workshops@gmail.com. Proposers will be notified by March 23rd, 2020 whether their proposals have been accepted. We have put together a sample template for workshop proposals. You may use another format if you prefer.
