[Call for Papers] The 2nd International Joint Conference on Theoretical Computer Science (IJTCS 2021)


The 2nd International Joint Conference on Theoretical Computer Science (IJTCS 2021) will be held on August 16-20, 2021, hosted by Peking University. We will cooperate with CSIAM, CCF and ACM China Council to provide you with a feast of theoretical computer science.


IJTCS 2021 is calling for papers concerning any branch of theoretical computer science, together with focus tracks in Algorithmic Game Theory, Blockchain, Multi-agent Reinforcement Learning, Quantum Computation, Theory of Machine Learning, Machine Learning, Formal Method, and Algorithm and Complexity. Furthermore, we will also host a series of featured forums including Female Forum, Youth PhD Forum, and Undergraduate Research Forum.



The following tracks are open to submission this year:
Track A: Algorithmic Game Theory
Track B: Game Theory in Blockchain
Track G: The 15th Frontiers of Algorithmics Workshop


Important Dates

Submission: May 26, 2021, 11:59pm anywhere on Earth
Notification: June 26, 2021
Camera Ready: July 4, 2021
Main Conference: August 16-20, 2021


Submission Guidelines

Authors are required to submit an abstract of one page or an extended abstract of no more than 12 pages, excluding references and the front page(s) (authors, affiliation, keywords, abstract, ...), presenting original research on theoretical computer science. The specific requirements of submissions may be different in each track. All submissions must be formatted in the LNCS style and submitted via Easychair to the appropriate track of the conference, using the following link:


The use of pdflatex and the LNCS style are mandatory: papers that deviate significantly from the required format may be rejected without consideration of merit.


No prior publication and no simultaneous submission to other publication outlets (either a conference or a journal) are allowed.


Technical details necessary for a proper scientific evaluation of a submission must be included in the 12-page submission or in a clearly labeled appendix, to be consulted at the discretion of program committee members. Authors are strongly encouraged to also make full versions of their submissions freely accessible in an online repository such as ArXiv, HAL, ECCC.


Every accepted paper requires at least one author to attend the conference and deliver the talk. The paper may be excluded from the proceedings if none of the authors attends the conference.
