Submission guidelines

Submission guidelines Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract or full paper of at most 12 pages (including title page, abstract, references, but not counting an optional appendix). Submissions must be formatted in LaTeX, using the OASIcs style files which can be downloaded at 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 can be put into an appendix to be read by the program committee members at their discretion.

Papers must be submitted electronically via the EasyChair submision system. The submission must be received by 21 June 2015. Each accepted paper must be presented at the workshop by one of the authors. The proceedings will be published online and as open-access in the Dagstuhl Open Access Series in Informatics (OASIcs).

By submitting a paper the authors acknowledge that in case of acceptance at least one of the authors must register at ALGO 2015 or ATMOS 2015, attend the conference, and present the paper.
