GENERAL INFORMATION - Call for papers
The Colloquia on Structural Information and Communication Complexity (SIROCCO) focus on the relationship between computing and communication, i.e., the study of those factors that are significant for the computability and the communication complexity of problems and on the interplay between structure, knowledge and complexity. The Colloquia provide an opportunity to bring together specialists interested in the fundamental principles underlying all computing through communication.
SIROCCO prides itself on being a lively venue, which encourages the emergence of new research areas (related to distributed computing in a broad sense) and the dissemination of original ideas. This is achieved by dedicating ample time for informal discussions and open problem sessions in addition to regular conference activities.
Original papers are solicited from all those areas where the interplay between complexity and communication takes place. In particular from: distributed computing, high-speed networks, interconnection networks, mobile computing, optical computing, parallel computing, sensor networks, wireless networks, and related areas.
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to): communication complexity, distributed algorithms and data structures, information dissemination, mobile agent computing, models of communication, network topologies, routing protocols, sense of direction, structural properties.

Authors are invited to submit their work in one of the three acceptable formats: novel research contributions, position papers, and surveys. A PostScript/PDF version of the paper (not exceeding 12 pages) together with at most 20 lines of abstract in ASCII format, via the conference web page http://sirocco06.csc.liv.ac.uk/confmaster/ (preferably) or by e-mail to email@example.com, no later than February 17, 2006. Authors who are unable to submit electronically should contact the organisers. No simultaneous submission to other conferences with published proceedings is allowed.
The proceedings of the conference are published in the Springer Verlag LNCS series. Selected papers will be invited to the special issue of a high quality journal devoted to SIROCCO 2006 (in the past three years it has been with Theoretical Computer Science).
Deadline for submission: FEBRUARY 17, 2006 Notification to authors: MARCH 20, 2006 Final version: APRIL 14, 2006 Symposium: JULY 3-5, 2006
SIROCCO will be co-located with CAAN (3rd Workshop on Combinatorial and Algorithmic Aspects of Networking and the Internet), which will take place on July 2nd.
One of our goals is to keep the costs of the conference on the lowest possible level. We are happy to announce that with kind generosity of the EPSRC we will be able to provide grants for young researchers and postgraduate students.
