Special note regarding the question of whether P is equal to NP:

ToCT follows the policy of Journal of the ACM, with regard to submissions purporting to resolve the P versus NP question.  This policy will be implemented in the following manner:

No author may submit more than one paper to ToCT or J. ACM in any 24 month period, purporting to resolve the P versus NP question or related long-standing questions in complexity theory, except by invitation of the Editor-in-Chief. This applies to resubmissions of previously rejected manuscripts.

New options for ACM authors to manage rights and permissions for their work

ACM introduces a new publishing license agreement, an updated copyright transfer agreement, and a new author-pays option which allows for perpetual open access through the ACM Digital Library. For more information, visit the ACM Author Rights webpage.
