48th International Conference on Current Trends
in Theory and Practice
of Computer Science
SOFSEM is postponed until 2023
SOFSEM is the annual, international winter conference devoted to the theory
and practice of computer science. It is a key meeting for the presentation
of recent results and developments in the foundations of computer
data science and software engineering, with special themes in
e.g. algorithmic computational biology, artificial intelligence, web science
and other leading areas. The annual proceedings of SOFSEM are published in the
subseries ARCoSS (Advanced Research in Computing and Software Science)
of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) of Springer.
SOFSEM is well-known for its inspiring atmosphere, as a meeting place for
active computer scientists in all stages of their research career.
The first SOFSEM was held in 1974. The latest SOFSEM, the 47th in the row, was
successfully organized in January 2021 at the
Free University of Bozen-Bolzano (Italy), online. (See
SOFSEM 2021, and the list of previous SOFSEM
Due to continued uncertainties of the pandemic, the SOFSEM Steering Committee
has decided to postpone the next (48th) SOFSEM until 2023. Thus, there
will be no SOFSEM in January 2022.
In the meantime, the SOFSEM Steering Committee will be renewing the scope and
format of SOFSEM, to keep it focussed on the most recent research challenges
and needs in the foundations of computer science and artificial
Please inform the SOFSEM Steering Committee of any special theme sessions that
you want to propose or organize at SOFSEM 2023.
The next SOFSEM will be held in 2023, in the usual timeslot (end of
January 2023), expectedly in usual `SOFSEM mode' again. Announcements will
be made through the usual channels. Please keep SOFSEM posted, so we may welcome
you again at SOFSEM 2023.
