  • Computational Learning Theory
  • Cryptography and Security
  • Game Theory and Mechanism Design
  • Logic in Computer Science
  • Model Theory, Modal and Temporal Logics
  • Models of Concurrent and Distributed Systems
  • Models of Timed, Reactive, Hybrid and Stochastic Systems
  • Parallel, Distributed and Online Algorithms
  • Parameterized Complexity
  • Principles and Semantics of Programming Languages
  • Program Analysis and Transformation
  • Proof Complexity
  • Quantum Computing
  • Randomness in Computing
  • Specification, Verification, and Synthesis
  • Theorem Proving, Decision Procedures, and Model Checking
  • Theoretical Aspects of Mobile and High-Performance Computing

Submissions must be in electronic form via EasyChair using the LIPIcs LaTeX style file. Submissions must not exceed 12 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. More detailed submission instructions are provided on the FSTTCS 2017 submission page.

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 at the conference.
