## Call for Papers

**22**^{nd} International Symposium on

**Theoretical Aspects of Computer Science**

**Stuttgart, Germany**

**February 24--26, 2005**

**Scope:** Authors are invited to submit papers presenting
original and unpublished research on theoretical aspects of computer
science. Typical areas include (but are not limited to):

- Algorithms and data structures, including: parallel and
distributed algorithms, computational geometry, cryptography,
algorithmic learning theory;
- Automata and formal languages;
- Computational and structural complexity;
- Logic in computer science, including: semantics,
specification, and verification of programs, rewriting and
deduction;
- Current challenges, for example: theory, models, and
algorithms for biological computing, quantum computing, mobile and
net computing.

**Submissions:** Authors are invited to submit a draft of a full
paper with at most 12 pages. The title page must contain a
classification of the topic covered, preferably using the list of
topics above. The paper should contain a succinct statement of the
issues and of their motivation, a summary of the main results, and a
brief explanation of their significance, accessible to
non-specialist readers. Proofs omitted due to space constraints
must be put into an appendix to be read by the program committee
members at their discretion. Submissions deviating from these
guidelines risk summary rejection.

Only electronic submissions in postscript or pdf format are
accepted, please follow the instructions on this web page.

**Proceedings:** Accepted papers will be published in the
proceedings of the Symposium (Lecture Notes in Computer Science,
Springer-Verlag). Simultaneous submission to other conferences with
published proceedings is not allowed.
