SIROCCO is devoted to the study of communication and knowledge in
multi-processor systems from both the qualitative and quantitative
viewpoints. Special emphasis is given to innovative approaches and
fundamental understanding, in addition to efforts to optimize current


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. This year, SIROCCO is held in
Turkey, in the Nesin Mathematics Village, located in the midst of a
beautiful scenery, close to the sea and to the ancient city of


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 Prize for Innovation In Distributed Computing is awarded annually
in the SIROCCO conference to recognize individuals whose research
contributions had a major impact on the understanding of the
relationships between information and efficiency in decentralized
computing. Only authors of papers that were published in SIROCCO are
eligible to receive the award. More details are available in the
SIROCCO 2010 web site.


Submissions should be made through the on-line submission site:
Submitted papers must be written in English and must not exceed 12
pages, including the title page, figures, tables and references. The
submission must be made using 11-point font and reasonable margins.
Submissions deviating from these guidelines risk rejection without
consideration of their contents. The deadline for submitting a
paper is *January 31, 5pm CET*. Notification of acceptance will be
sent out by March 21, and the camera-ready papers are due on April 4.


The proceedings of SIROCCO 2010 will be published by Springer-Verlag
as a part of the LNCS series. Selected papers will be invited to a
special issue of the journal /Theoretical Computer Science/.
