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
Springer web site.
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12 pages describing original unpublished research.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.
