LICS 2021 Online

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 in-person component of the IEEE LICS 2021 conference into an all-digital conference experience – IEEE LICS 2021 will now be an online event. ThereforeIEEE LICS 2021 will no longer take place in Rome (Italy) and will instead take place virtually. The conference dates remain the same – June 29-July 2, 2021. Proceedings will not be cancelled, and publications will continue as planned. For questions, contact

Hosting Institution

The local host of the conference will be the Università di Roma “La Sapienza” and the hosting department will be the Dipartimento di Informatica (  and, respectively).


With over 700 years of history, 112,000 students, 4000 teachers and 2000 employees, technicians and librarians, in addition to 2000 administrative staff in university hospitals, Sapienza is the first university in Europe. Our mission is to contribute to the development of a knowledge society through research, excellence, quality education and international cooperation. The world’s leading university rankings place Sapienza at the top of Italian universities for quality of research, education and international dimension; moreover, Sapienza excels and leads as a benchmark in many subject areas.

The Department of Computer Science

Founded on January 1, 1992 under the initiative of a group of professors from the Department of Mathematics “Guido Castelnuovo” with backgrounds from a variety of fields such as physics, engineering, and mathematics, the department is set on building upon the scientific and mathematical backgrounds of the founders. The department became the first center in greater Rome dedicated to the study of theoretical and applied computer science and today is a reference point for well-prepared students to jump into  the evolving field of Information and Communications Technology. 

The department is internationally recognized as a center of excellence in many of the most important current areas of research in Computer Science.
