11th Workshop on Approximation and Online Algorithms
WAOA 2013
September 05-06
Sophia Antipolis, France


WAOA 2013 - Call for papers

Deadline is June 20, 2013, 23:59 (GMT)


Algorithms have become a fundamental tool in several fields outside of Computer Science, and in several applications algorithms have to cope with computationally hard problems and problems in which the input is gradually disclosed over time. The workshop focuses on the design and analysis of approximation and online algorithms. WAOA 2013 will be part of ALGO 2013, which also hosts ESA, WABI, IPEC, ALGOSENSORS, MASSIVE and ATMOS. ALGO 2013 will take place 2-6 September 2013 in Sophia Antipolis, France.


Papers are solicited in all research areas related to approximation and online algorithms, including, but not limited to:

  • algorithmic game theory
  • algorithmic trading
  • coloring and partitioning
  • competitive analysis
  • computational advertising
  • computational finance
  • cuts and connectivity
  • geometric problems
  • graph algorithms
  • inapproximability results
  • mechanism design
  • natural algorithms
  • network design
  • packing and covering
  • paradigms for the design and analysis of approximation and online algorithms
  • parameterized complexity
  • real-world applications
  • scheduling problems


Proceedings will be published after the workshop takes place in the Springer series Lecture Notes in Computer Science. Instructions for authors can be found at Springer web site.

Submission guidelines

Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract or full paper of at most 12 pages describing original unpublished research. Simultaneous submission to other conferences with published proceedings is not permitted. The title page of the submission should include the authors' full names, addresses, e-mail addresses, and an abstract summarizing the results in roughly 100-200 words; the remainder of the submission should contain a description of the main results and an explanation of their importance. The submission must include a full proof of the results, part of which can be placed in the appendix, whose length is not constrained. Papers should be submitted electronically via the EasyChair submission system.
The WAOA proceedings will be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series by Springer-Verlag.
Each accepted paper will be allotted 12 pages in the proceedings.
