SIROCCO is devoted to the study of the interplay between communication and knowledge in multi-processor systems from both the qualitative and quantitative viewpoints. Special emphasis is given to innovative approaches and fundamental understanding, in addition to efforts to optimize current designs.
SIROCCO has a tradition of interesting and productive scientific meetings in a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere, attracting leading researchers in a variety of fields in which communication and knowledge play a significant role.
Original papers are solicited from all areas of study of local structural knowledge and global communication and computational complexities. Among the typical areas are distributed computing, communication networks, game theory, parallel computing, social networks, mobile computing (including autonomous robots), peer to peer systems, and communication complexity. Keeping with the tradition of SIROCCO, new areas are always welcome.
Papers are to be submitted electronically through EasyChair at
Authors are invited to submit their work in one of the three acceptable formats: novel research contributions, position papers, and surveys. Original research papers must contain results that have not previously appeared and have not been concurrently submitted to a journal or conference with published proceedings. In all cases, any partial overlap with any published or concurrently submitted paper must be clearly indicated.
All submissions must be in English, in PDF format. You can use either of the following layouts for your submissions:
Additional details may be included in an appendix, to be read at the programme committee’s discretion.
We will also prepare an informal pre-proceedings volume with author-prepared versions of the papers. The pre-proceedings will be freely available online on the conference web page before the conference.
Selected papers from SIROCCO 2016 will be invited to a special issue of the Theoretical Computer Science journal.
The authors of the best paper will be awarded a prize of 1000 EUR (in total, to be split among the authors), sponsored by Springer. The program committee may choose to split the award among multiple papers.
