Call For Papers

47th International Conference on Current Trends in Theory and Practice of Computer Science
Bozen-Bolzano, Italy, January 25-28, 2021

We all hope that in January 2021 the situation is back to normal and
that SOFSEM 2021 can be hold in Bozen-Bolzano. However, the PC will
monitor the situation, and for the case that the standard organization
is impossible, the conference will be virtual (as many other
conferences in these days). Therefore, the paper selection and
reviewing process will run as usual, and the accepted papers will be
published by Springer in the ARCoSS/LNCS series, independent of the
way the conference will be hold.

SOFSEM (SOFtware SEMinar) is an annual international winter conference
devoted to the theory and practice of computer science, where the
latest results and developments in academic and industrial research in
leading areas of computer science are presented. SOFSEM has a
long-standing tradition of facilitating discussions and collegial
interactions. It is well-known for its familiar and inspiring
atmosphere and as a meeting place for active and leading computer
scientists. The program will consist of invited talks by prominent
researchers, contributed talks selected from the submitted papers, and
the Student Research Forum.


SOFSEM 2021 consists of four tracks covering major sub-areas of
computer science. Each track has its own program chair and program
committee for peer review and feedback to authors. Please select the
appropriate track of SOFSEM 2021 for your contribution.

Track: Foundations of Computer Science
- Algorithms and data structures
- Automata and formal languages
- Complexity theory
- Computability theory

- Biological networks
- Cancer genomics
- Comparative genomics
- Gene expression
- Phylogenetics
- Sequence analysis
- System biology


We solicit papers that describe original research works that are
relevant to the tracks listed above and not published or under review
elsewhere. Papers must be submitted electronically via Easychair in
Springer format (max 12 pages). Submitted papers will undergo a peer
review process. Detailed submission guidelines are here:


The proceedings will be published by Springer in the ARCoSS/LNCS series.


The SOFSEM 2021 Conference will be hosted at the Free University of
Bozen-Bolzano, Italy. Bozen-Bolzano is the capital city of the
Province of South Tyrol located in the heart of the Alps. The city is
famous for the 5000 year old iceman "Ötzi" in the archaeological
museum and as an entrance to the Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage
