Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science

  ENTCS Macro Home Page

The Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science is an online series devoted to publishing proceedings of high-quality research conferences and workshops in theoretical computer science. ENTCS is open-access and is published and maintained by Elsevier Science B.V. on its ScoenceDirect© platform.

ENTCS does not accept submissions of individual papers -- researchers seeking publication of individual research articles are encouraged to seek one of Elsevier's research journals; the list of Elsevier journals in theoretical computer science includes Theoretical Computer Science, Information and Computation, Information Processing Letters and the Journal of Computer and System Sciences.

This site is devoted to providing information about the Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science, including how to submit proposals for publications in the series, as well as how to prepare files for publication using the LaTeX macro files used to publish material in the ENTCS.

custom graphic The Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science was founded by Michael Mislove (Tulane) and Maurice Nivat (University of Paris). The first volume of the series is the Proceedings of the Eleventh MFPS Conference held at Tulane in April, 1995, and published later that year.

ENTCS provides rapid publication of conference proceedings, lecture notes, thematic monographs and similar publications of interest to the theoretical computer science and mathematics communities. ENTCS is published electronically on ScienceDirect©, Elsevier's main platform for electronic publication. It utilizes the World Wide Web as a medium to provide rapid publication and broad dissemination of the volumes in the series. For example, Proceedings of conferences that are ready when the conference begins can be available on line at the same time the conference takes place.

Publishing volumes in ENTCS proceeds in two stages:
  1. Preparation of files for the preliminary version of an ENTCS volume. Authors and Guest Editors should follow the instructions listed here...   
  1. Preparation of the final versions of an ENTCS volume, Guest Editors must collect the LaTeX source files for all the papers, together with some additional information, and they also must prepare some information that Elsevier needs about each paper. The complete instructions are here...

Some of the volumes from the original ENTCS archive are not yet available on ScienceDirect. Here is a table providing links to those that are now available.
