Today, the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science started a ballot on the future of the publication of the proceedings of ICALP. This is a very important decision for the EATCS, and for the ICALP community in general. As chairman of the publication committee of the EATCS, I urge all the members of the TCS community who have a right to vote as members of the EATCS, to give this matter serious thought and exercise their right to express an opinion on whether future ICALP proceedings should be published with Springer or with LIPIcs. Note that if you attended ICALP 2011, ESA 2011 or MFCS 2011, you have the right to vote since your registration fee probably included a one-year membership of the EATCS.
Note also that the result of the ballot will only take effect if at least 25 % of the EATCS members participate. Otherwise, the proposal of the EATCS council to recommend to the EATCS membership to go along with Springer for the next four years will take effect automatically.
The ballot on the future of the publication of the ICALP proceedings, as well as all the supporting documentation, can be found here. I do hope that you will take time to consider this matter and vote as soon as possible.
