Authors are invited to submit a draft of a full paper with at most 12 pages (excluding the references section). The usage of pdflatex and the LIPIcs style file (see below) are mandatory; no changes to font size, page geometry etc. are permitted.  Submissions not in the correct format or submitted after the deadline will not be considered.

The paper should contain a succinct statement of the issues and of their motivation, a summary of the main results, and a brief explanation of their significance, accessible to non-specialist readers. Proofs omitted due to space constraints must be put into an appendix, to be read by the program committee members at their discretion.

Simultaneous submission to other conferences with published proceedings or to journals is not allowed. PC members are excluded from submitting. As a novelty for STACS, there will also be a rebuttal period for authors. Authors will receive the reviews of their submissions (via EasyChair) on Nov 14/15 and have three days (Nov 15 - 17) to submit rebuttals (via EasyChair). These rebuttals become part of the PC meeting, but entail no specific responses.
