24th International Conference on Theory and Applications of Satisfiability
SAT-2021, July 5-9, 2021, Barcelona, Spain


SAT 2021 welcomes scientific contributions addressing different aspects of
the satisfiability problem, interpreted in a broad sense. Domains include
MaxSAT and Pseudo-Boolean (PB) constraints, Quantified Boolean Formulae
(QBF), Satisfiability Modulo Theories (SMT), as well as Constraint
Satisfaction Problems (CSP). Topics include, but are not restricted to:

    Theoretical advances;
    Practical search algorithms;
    Knowledge compilation;
    Implementation-level details of SAT solving tools and SAT-based systems;
    Problem encodings and reformulations;
    Case studies and reports on insightful findings based on rigorous

*** Important Dates ***

    Abstract submission: March 15th
    Paper submission: March 19th
    Author response period: April 26-27th
    Author notification: May 5th
    Camera-ready: May 15th
    Conference: July 5-9th

*** Submission and Publication ***

Submissions to SAT 2021 are solicited in three paper categories, describing
original contributions.

    Long papers (9 to 15 pages, excluding references)
    Short papers (up to 8 pages, excluding references)
    Tool papers (up to 8 pages, excluding references)

All papers submissions are done exclusively via EasyChair in Springer’s
LaTeX llncs2e style.

Long and short papers should contain original research, with sufficient
detail to assess the merits and relevance of the contribution. For papers
reporting experimental results, authors are strongly encouraged to make
their data and implementations available with their submission. Submissions
reporting on case studies are also encouraged, and should describe details,
weaknesses, and strengths in sufficient depth. Long and short papers will
be evaluated with the same quality standards, and are expected to contain a
similar contribution per page ratio.

Tool papers must obey to a specific content criteria. A tool paper should
describe the implemented tool and its novel features. Here “tools” are
interpreted in a broad sense, including descriptions of implemented
solvers, preprocessors, etc., as well as systems that exploit SAT solvers
or their extensions for use in interesting problem domains. A demonstration
is expected to accompany a tool presentation. Papers describing tools that
have already been presented previously are expected to contain significant
and clear enhancements to the tool.

All accepted papers are expected to be published in the proceedings of the
conference, which will be published within the Springer LNCS series.

*** Best Paper Awards ***

Long and short papers may be considered for a Best Paper Award. If the main
author is a student, both in terms of work and writing, the paper may be
considered for a Best Student Paper Award.

*** Student Grants ***

SAT 2021 will provide free registration to all the PhD students with an
accepted paper.
