June 30 - July 2, Reykjavik, Iceland
Submission deadline: Monday, 27 February, 2012 (23:59 EDT)

Camera-ready submission: 21 April, 2012
Conference dates: 30 June - 2 July, 2012
SIROCCO is devoted to the study of communication and knowledge in multi-processor systems from both the qualitative and quantitative viewpoints. Special emphasis is given to innovative approaches and fundamental understanding, in addition to efforts to optimize current designs.
SIROCCO has a tradition of interesting and productive scientific meetings in a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere, attracting leading researchers in a variety of fields in which communication and knowledge play a significant role. This year, SIROCCO is held in
Original papers are solicited from all areas of study of local structural knowledge and global communication and computational complexities. Among the typical areas are distributed computing, communication networks, game theory, parallel computing, social
networks, mobile computing (including autonomous robots), peer to peer systems, communication complexity, fault tolerant graph theories, and randomized/probabilistic issues in networks. Keeping up with the tradition of SIROCCO, new areas are always welcome.
The Prize for Innovation in Distributed Computing is awarded annually in the SIROCCO conference to recognize individuals whose research contributions had a major impact on the understanding of the relationships between information and efficiency in decentralized computing. Only authors of papers that were published in SIROCCO are
eligible to receive the award. More details are available in the SIROCCO 2012 web site.
To be announced.
Full papers are to be submitted electronically using the EasyChair server. The link is
https://www.easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?conf=sirocco2012 . Submission guidelines are available in the conference web page.
Authors are invited to submit their work in one of the three acceptable formats: novel research contributions, position papers, and surveys. Original research papers must contain results that have not previously appeared and have not been concurrently submitted to a journal or conference with published proceedings. In all cases, any
partial overlap with any published or concurrently submitted paper must be clearly indicated.
Submissions are limited to 12 single-column pages on letter/A4-size paper (using at least 11 point font, 1 inch margins, standard line spacing). This includes figures, but excludes references and an optional appendix (to be read at the program committee's discretion).
As in previous years, the proceedings of SIROCCO 2012 are planned to be published by Springer-Verlag as a volume of the LNCS series. Selected papers are planned to be invited to a special issue of the journal Theoretical Computer Science.
