Call for Papers

The symposium seeks original algorithmic contributions for problems with relevant theoretical and/or practical applications: papers with a strong emphasis on the theoretical analysis of algorithms should be submitted to Track A, while papers reporting on the results of extensive experimental evaluations and/or providing original contributions to the engineering of algorithms for practical applications should be submitted to Track B.

There will be a Best Student Paper Award as well as a Best Paper Award, both sponsored by EATCS. In order for a paper to be considered for the Best Student Paper Award, all of its authors are required to be students.


Papers presenting original research in all areas of algorithmic research are sought, including but not limited to:

  • Algorithm engineering
  • Algorithmic aspects of networks
  • Algorithmic game theory
  • Approximation algorithms
  • Computational biology
  • Computational finance
  • Computational geometry
  • Combinatorial optimization
  • Data compression
  • Data structures
  • Databases and information retrieval
  • Distributed and parallel computing
  • Graph algorithms
  • Hierarchical memories
  • Heuristics and meta-heuristics
  • Mathematical programming
  • Mobile computing
  • On-line algorithms
  • Parameterized algorithms
  • Pattern matching
  • Quantum computing
  • Randomized algorithms
  • Scheduling and resource allocation problems
  • Streaming algorithms

Submission and Proceedings

Papers should be submitted electronically via the EasyChair submission system.
