|The conference seeks original research papers in all areas of
computational complexity theory. We also encourage results from other areas of computer
science and mathematics motivated by topics in complexity theory.
The following list of possible topics is not exhaustive:
A submission must be received by November 27th, 2002, 23:59 EST, for consideration. The paper should not exceed 10 pages. See submission instructions on the next page.
Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their work at the conference. The program committee will determine time allocations for presentations (between 15 and 45 minutes). Conference proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society. Publication in the conference proceedings does not preclude subsequent journal publication.

Submissions to other conferences
Abstract material which has been previously published in another conference proceedings or journal or which is simultaneously submitted to another conference with published proceedings may not be submitted to Computational Complexity 2003 and will not be considered for acceptance. Authors are encouraged to submit their papers to the Electronic Colloquium on Computational Complexity.
The conference has imposed a firm limitation of ten pages (in 11 point or larger fonts) on submissions. The ten-page limit excludes the following: cover page, bibliography, and technical appendices. Submissions deviating from these guidelines risk summary rejection. In your abstract (i) explain what the paper's major contributions are, (ii) convey why these contributions are interesting, and (iii) tell how these contributions relate to prior work. Use appendices to substantiate your major technical results.
Authors with no access to electronic submissions please contact the program committee chair by e-mail to Harry.Buhrman@cwi.nl, by telephone at +31-20-5924076, or by mail to
The instructions for final copies will be communicated to authors of accepted papers.
|Ron Book Prize for Best Student Paper
This award will be given to the best paper written solely by one or more students. An abstract is eligible if all authors are full-time students at the time of submission. This should be indicated in the submission registration message or cover letter. The program committee may decline to make the award or may split it among several papers.
Best Paper Award
This award will be given to the best paper submitted to the conference. This will be awarded by the program committee. The program committee may decline to make the award or may split it among several papers.
Special Kolmogorov Session
On Sunday, July 6th, a one-day session in honor of the 100th anniversary of the birth of A. N. Kolmogorov will be held in Aarhus. The session is titled "Complexity, Information, and Randomness: The Legacy of Andrei Kolmogorov.'' All who are attending the conference are welcome and encouraged to come.
In conjunction with the conference, contributed short research abstracts will be collected and will be made available a few days before the conference. Attendance at the conference is not required to submit an abstract. For more details, check the conference web site or contact the abstracts editor:
The Conference Site
The conference will take place at the University of Aarhus. The city of Aarhus (Århus) is located on the eastern shore of the Jutland peninsula and is the second largest city in Denmark with approximately 280,000 inhabitants (including suburbs). Aarhus is both a metropolis and a village: it offers cultural activities, shopping, and commerce, but still the countryside is reachable within twenty minutes from the city centre. Aarhus is served by Aarhus and Billund airports and can also be reached by train from Copenhagen or Hamburg.
The University of Aarhus is the second largest university in Denmark. In 2000, the number of students was approximately 21,000.
