FOCS 2021 is sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Mathematical Foundations of Computing.
IEEE Symposium on Foundations of Computer Science (FOCS 2021) – Now Taking Place Virtually
The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. After evaluating the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the decision has been made to transform the IEEE FOCS 2021 conference into an all-digital conference experience – IEEE FOCS 2021 will now be an online event. Therefore, IEEE FOCS 2021 will no longer take place in Denver, Colorado and will instead take place virtually. The conference dates remain the same – February 7-10, 2022. Proceedings will not be cancelled, and publications will continue as planned.

- Early Registration: Before February 6, 2022
Paper submission deadline: 5pm EDT, June 3, 2021 Notification: End of August, 2021 (note that this is after SODA submission deadline) Final version due: November 15, 2021 Test of Times Awards Nomination Deadline: October 31, 2021
