Call For Papers


Latin American Theoretical INformatics (LATIN 2014)
March 31-April 4, 2014, Montevideo, Uruguay

A series of Symposia in Theoretical Computer Science was launched in 1992, to be held in Latin America: LATIN (Latin American Theoretical INformatics). This is the eleventh event of the series, after Sao Paulo, Brazil (1992), Valparaiso, Chile (1995), Campinas, Brazil (1998), Punta del Este, Uruguay (2000), Cancun, Mexico (2002), Buenos Aires, Argentina (2004), Valdivia, Chile (2006), Buzios, Brazil (2008), Oaxaca, Mexico (2010), and Arequipa, Peru (2012).

We seek papers presenting original research in theoretical computer science, including, but not limited to: algorithms (approximation, online, randomized, algorithmic game theory, etc.), analytic combinatorics and analysis of algorithms, automata theory and formal languages, coding theory and data compression, combinatorial algorithms, combinatorial optimization, combinatorics and graph theory, complexity theory, computational algebra, computational biology, computational geometry, computational number theory, cryptology, databases and information retrieval, data structures, formal methods and security, Internet and the web, parallel and distributed computing, pattern matching, programming language theory, and random structures.

Proceedings containing the accepted extended abstracts will be published by Springer-Verlag, in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Printed versions will be available at the conference.

---- SUBMISSION ----

Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract in English no longer than 12 pages (including the bibliography) on letter-size paper using at least 11-point font in Springer LNCS format. If more space is needed, a clearly marked appendix, to be read at the discretion of the program committee, may be included if desired. Simultaneous submission of papers to any other conference with published proceedings, as well as the submission of previously published papers, is not allowed. Instructions for electronic submissions will be posted at the conference web site,

The deadline for submissions is September~17, 2013 (firm deadline). If needed, a short 1 page abstract of the paper can be submitted by this deadline, and later the final extended abstract can be submitted by September~22, 2013 (also firm deadline). Neither short abstracts nor new extended abstracts submitted after September~17 will be evaluated. Moreover, short abstracts not replaced by their extended version before September~22, will neither be evaluated.

Short abstract submission: Sep. 17, 2013
Final Submission: Sep. 22, 2013
Notification: Dec. 2, 2013
Final version: Dec. 20, 2013


Starting in 2012, an award is given to the LATIN paper deemed to be most influential among all those published at least ten years prior to the current edition of the conference. Papers published in the LATIN proceedings up to and including 2004 are eligible for the 2014 award.

---- LOCATION ----

Montevideo, a port city, the capital of Uruguay and home to its largest University, the Universidad de la Republica, is a perfect destination for travelers looking for a relaxing stroll past colonial era buildings and along beautiful beaches. The Ciudadela Gateway, the only remaining section of the wall that once surrounded the entire city, now serves as the entrance to Ciudad Vieja, Montevideo?s oldest neighborhood. Home to churches, museums, and theaters, at night the area comes alive with nightclubs playing Tango and Candombe music for crowds of dancers.
