LATIN 2020

The 14th Latin American Theoretical Informatics Symposium
May 25 to 29, 2020 --- São Paulo, Brazil or


LATIN (Latin American Theoretical Informatics) started in 1992, when a
group of Latin American researchers, under the leadership of Imre
Simon (São Paulo, Brazil), launched the first of a series of symposia
in theoretical computer science, to be held in Latin America. This is
the 14th meeting of the series, after São Paulo, Brazil (1992),
Valparaiso, Chile (1995), Campinas, Brazil (1998), Punta del Este,
Uruguay (2000), Cancún, Mexico (2002), Buenos Aires, Argentina (2004),
Valdivia, Chile (2006), Búzios, Brazil (2008), Oaxaca, Mexico (2010),
Arequipa, Peru (2012), Montevideo, Uruguay (2014), Ensenada, Mexico
(2016) and Buenos Aires, Argentina (2018).

In 2020, LATIN will be held at the University of São Paulo, Brazil.

LATIN is devoted to different areas in theoretical computer science
including, but not limited to: algorithms (approximation, online,
combinatorial optimization, etc.), algorithmic game theory, analytic
combinatorics and analysis of algorithms, automata theory and formal
languages, combinatorics and graph theory, computational algebra and
number theory, computational complexity, computational biology,
computational geometry, data structures and information retrieval,
foundations of data science and theoretical machine learning, parallel
and distributed computing, quantum computing, randomization and
pseudorandomness, sublinear algorithms and testing.

pages in Springer LNCS format, and must be written in English. For
the submission guidelines, please check the LATIN 2020 website at


LATIN 2020 will have poster sessions to facilitate and promote
attendance. We especially encourage students and young researchers to
submit their preliminary findings and on-going work covering all the
subjects of LATIN.

Poster authors are required to submit a two-page abstract of their
work. All submissions will be peer-reviewed, and at least one author
of each abstract accepted to the poster session must present the work
personally at the poster session of LATIN 2020.
