The 54th ACM Symposium on Theory of Computing (STOC 2022) is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Algorithms and Computation Theory and will be held in Rome, Italy Monday June 20 – Friday, June 24, 2022. It will be part of a 5-day TheoryFest that will feature six workshops with introductory tutorials, technical talks and poster sessions, social events, and a special joint session with ``Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei'', the oldest and most prestigious Italian academic institution, followed by a reception and a concert at the Academy historic site.
Several keynote talks will be part of a special joint session with ``Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei''. Keynote speakers at this event include Patrick Hayden, Silvio Micali, Andrea Montanari, Giorgio Parisi, and Umesh Vazirani. More details and program to come soon. In addition, Claire Mathieu will give a keynote talk on Friday, June 24.

STOC Paper Submission
Typical but not exclusive topics of interest for STOC papers include foundational areas such as algorithms and data structures, computational complexity, parallel and distributed algorithms, quantum computing, continuous and discrete optimization, randomness in computing, approximation algorithms, combinatorics and algorithmic graph theory, cryptography, computational geometry, algebraic computation, computational applications of logic, and algorithmic coding theory. Typical topics also include computation and foundational aspects of areas such as machine learning, economics, fairness, privacy, networks, data management, and biology. Papers that broaden the reach of the theory of computing, or raise important problems that can benefit from theoretical investigation and analysis, are encouraged.
