SIROCCO is devoted to the study of the interplay between structural knowledge, communication, and computing in decentralized systems of multiple communicating entities. Special emphasis is given to innovative approaches leading to better understanding of the relationship between computing and communication.

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.


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, and communication complexity. Keeping with the tradition of SIROCCO, new areas are always welcome.


The post-proceedings of SIROCCO 2019 will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (LNCS) after the conference. We will also prepare an informal pre-proceedings volume with author-prepared versions of the papers that will be made available online.


Selected papers from SIROCCO 2019 will be invited to a special issue of the Theoretical Computer Science journal.


Detailed instructions will be made available in the call for papers.
