[DMANET] IPEC 2011 - Call for Papers


IPEC 2011
6th International Symposium on Parameterized and Exact Computation

Saarbruecken, Germany
September 7-9, 2011


The 6th International Symposium on Parameterized and Exact Computation
(IPEC 2011, formerly IWPEC) covers research in all aspects of
parameterized and exact algorithms and complexity. Papers presenting
original research in the area are sought, including but not limited
to: new techniques for the design and analysis of parameterized and
exact algorithms, fixed-parameter tractability results, parameterized
complexity theory, relationship between parameterized complexity and
traditional complexity classifications, applications of parameterized
and exact computation, and implementation issues of parameterized and
exact algorithms. In particular, studies on parameterized and exact
computations for real-world applications and algorithmic engineering
are especially encouraged.

IPEC 2011 will be part of ALGO 2011, which also hosts ESA, WABI,
WAOA, ATMOS, and ALGOSENSORS. ALGO 2011 will take place September 5-9,
2011 in Saarbrücken, Germany.


Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract in English no
longer than 12 pages using at least 11-point font, preferably in
LNCS-style, describing original unpublished research. Simultaneous
submission to other conferences with published proceedings is not
permitted. Additional details as necessary may be included in a
clearly marked appendix that will be read at the discretion of the
program committee. Authors must submit their papers electronically.
A detailed description of the electronic submission process is
available at the symposium website. Program committee members (except
the co-chairs) are allowed to submit papers.

Accepted papers will be published in the symposium proceedings in the
Springer series Lecture Notes in Computer Science. Authors of accepted
papers are expected to present their work at the symposium, and to
incorporate the comments from the program committee and from the
symposium discussions in the final version of their submissions.
Accepted papers in final form will be due approximately 6 weeks after
the symposium.

The Program Committee may award an Excellent Student Paper Award to
one or more papers accepted to the symposium. A paper is elegible for
the award if all authors are students at the time of submission,
where a student is someone who has not been awarded a PhD.
