STOC 2021: Call for Workshops

Important Dates

Submission deadline: March 15, 2021
Notification:March 31, 2021
Workshop Day: June 21–25, 2021

STOC 2021 will hold workshops during the conference week, June 21–25, 2021. We invite groups of interested researchers to submit workshop proposals.

The STOC 2021 workshops provide an informal forum for researchers to discuss 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: Each workshop should be at most 3 hours. Workshops can have live or pre-recorded talks, depending on the organizers.

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. If your proposal is accepted and you wish to solicit contributed talks, we can link to your call-for-contributions from the STOC 2021 page. Feel free to contact the workshop co-chairs directly at if you have any questions.
