SIAM Journal on Computing (SICOMP) aims to provide
coverage of the most significant work going on in the mathematical and formal
aspects of computer science and nonnumerical computing. Submissions must be
clearly written, and make a significant mathematical contribution with
continuing relevance to computer science research.
Topics include but are not limited to analysis and design of algorithms, algorithmic game theory, data structures, computational complexity, computational algebra, computational aspects of combinatorics and graph theory, computational biology, computational geometry, computational robotics, the mathematical aspects of programming languages, artificial intelligence, computational learning, databases, information retrieval, cryptography, networks, distributed computing, parallel algorithms, and computer architecture.
In general, only original papers will be considered. Submission of a manuscript to a SIAM journal is representation by the author that no version of it has been accepted for publication, and that no version of it is or will be concurrently under submission at other publications. However, a paper already published or accepted for publication in preliminary form in conference proceedings may be submitted in a revised form suitable for journal publication. Authors must clearly indicate this circumstance in their cover letter and in a footnote on the first page of the paper.
