FSTTCS 2024 is the 44th conference on Foundations of Software Technology and Theoretical Computer Science. It is organised by IARCS, the Indian Association for Research in Computing Science, in association with ACM India. It is a forum for presenting original results in foundational aspects of Computer Science and Software Technology.

FSTTCS 2024 will be held in IIT Gandhinagar during December 16–18, 2024. The conference is being organized as an in-person event.

Submissions must be in electronic form via EasyChair using the LIPIcs LaTeX style file available here. Submissions must not exceed 15 pages (excluding bibliography), but may include a clearly marked appendix containing technical details. The appendix will be read only at the discretion of the program committee. Simultaneous submissions to journals or other conferences with published proceedings are disallowed.

Reviewing for FSTTCS 2024 is double-blind. Hence, authors must make a reasonable effort to ensure that their identity is not easily revealed from the submission itself. Specifically, kindly replace your name and affiliation on the first page with the submission number and do not include any acknowledgements in your submission. Also, authors should cite their prior work in a neutral manner (i.e., instead of saying “We showed”, please write “XYZ et al. showed”). Submitting a paper that is available at a public preprint server (such as, arXiv) is admissible. In that case, please do not cite that version of your work in the submission itself.

Accepted papers will be published as proceedings of the conference in the ​Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics (LIPIcs)​ as a free, open, electronic archive with access to all. Authors will retain full rights over their work. The accepted papers will be published under a ​CC-BY license​. For an accepted paper to be included in the proceedings, one of the authors must commit to presenting the paper in person at the conference.

Authors must submit abstracts by July 5 and full papers by July 12.

  • Deadline for the submission of abstracts: July 5, 2024 AoE
