Date: 10 Jan 2014 From: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: SEA 2014 Dear Jyrki, Please distribute the SEA 2014 call for papers (see below) to your colleagues. The submission deadline is on the 7th of February. We've been lucky to get three great plenary speakers: Jon Bentley, Avaya Labs Research Robert Bixby, Rice University Rasmus Pagh, IT University of Copenhagen Sincerely, Joachim -------------------------------------------------------------------- 13th International Symposium on Experimental Algorithms http://www.diku.dk/sea2014 June 29-2014July 1, 2014 Copenhagen, Denmark Call for Papers -------------------------------------------------------------------- IMPORTANT DATES Submission deadline: February 7, 2014 Author notification: March 14, 2014 Camera-ready submission: April 4, 2014 AIMS & SCOPE 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 problem. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: - Algorithm Engineering - Algorithmic Libraries - Algorithmic Mechanism Design - Analysis of Algorithms - Algorithms for Memory Hierarchies - Approximation Techniques - Bioinformatics - Branch-and-Bound Algorithms - Combinatorial and Irregular Problems - Combinatorial Structures and Graphs - Communication Networks - Complex Networks - Computational Geometry - Computational Learning Theory - Computational Optimization - Computer Systems - Cryptography and Security - Data Streams - Data Structures - Distributed and Parallel Algorithms - Evaluation of Algorithms for Realistic Environments - Experimental Techniques and Statistics - Graph Drawing - Heuristics for Combinatorial Optimization - Implementation, Testing, Evaluation and Fine-tuning - Information Retrieval - Integer Programming - Logistics and Operations Management - Machine Learning and Data Mining - Mathematical Programming - Metaheuristic Methodologies - Multiple Criteria Decision Making - Network Analysis - Novel Applications of Algorithms in Other Disciplines - Online Problems - Parallel Algorithms and Computing - Railway Optimization using Algorithmic Methods - Randomized Techniques - Robotics - Semidefinite Programming - Simulation - Software Repositories and Platforms for using Algorithms - Telecommunications and Networking - World-Wide-Web Algorithms PROGRAM COMMITTEE Benjamin Doerr, Max-Planck Institut für Informatik Camil Demetrescu, Sapienza University of Rome David G.

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