The objective of the Symposium on Algorithmic Foundations of Dynamic Networks (SAND) is to provide a primary venue for the presentation and discussion of research on fundamental aspects of computing in dynamic networks. Focusing on the theory, design, analysis, and application of computing in dynamic networks, SAND seeks high-quality results characterized by a marked algorithmic aspect that shed insights on the computability landscape for dynamic environments or that can be foundational for practical and impactful systems.

SAND 2024 will be hosted by the University of Patras, at the Cultural & Conference Center, Patras University Campus, 26504 Rion, Greece.
