SEA, previously known as WEA (Workshop on Experimental Algorithms),
is an international forum for researchers in the area of design,
analysis, and experimental evaluation and engineering of algorithms,
as well as in various aspects of computational optimization and
its applications. The preceding symposia were held in Riga, Monte
Verita, Rio de Janeiro, Santorini, Menorca Island, Rome, Cape Cod,
Dortmund, Ischia Island, Crete, Bordeaux, and Rome.

The main theme of the symposium is the role of experimentation and
of algorithm-engineering techniques in the design and evaluation of
algorithms and data structures. Submissions should present
significant contributions supported by experimental evaluation,
methodological issues in the design and interpretation of
experiments, the use of (meta-)heuristics, or application-driven
case studies that deepen the understanding of the complexity of a

Authors are invited to submit high-quality manuscripts reporting
original unpublished research and recent developments in the topics
related to the symposium. Simultaneous submission to other
conferences or workshops with published proceedings is not allowed.

Submissions must not exceed 12 pages formatted according to LNCS
style plus an optional, clearly marked appendix of reasonable
length (to be read at the program committee's discretion). All papers
will be peer reviewed and comments will be provided to the authors.


Accepted papers will appear in the SEA 2014 proceedings published
by Springer in the LNCS series.
