General Information

The 56th ACM Symposium on Theory of Computing (STOC 2024) is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Algorithms and Computation Theory and will be held at the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada Monday, June 24 - Friday, June 28, 2024.

STOC 2024 will be part of a 5-day TheoryFest with an expanded program of STOC papers, poster sessions, and a broad cross-section of invited talks, workshops, tutorials, and social events.

STOC Paper Submission

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

Double-blind reviewing will be used, and therefore submissions should not contain the authors' names or identifying information.
