[DMANET] Second CFP -- APEX 2012

APEX 2012

International Workshop on Approximation, Parameterized and EXact algorithms

February 28, 2012, Paris, France



The APEX (Approximation, Parameterized and EXact algorithms) workshop is
supported by the French National Agency for Research (ANR) under the TODO
(Time versus Optimality in Discrete Optimization) ANR project. It aims to
bring together researchers working on the design and analysis of
algorithms (exact, moderately exponential, approximation and low
memory,...) for combinatorial optimization problems.

APEX is co-located with STACS 2012 in Paris.


Papers are solicited in all areas of approximation and exact algorithms,
including but not limited to:

- exact and parameterized algorithms
- approximation and online algorithms
- massive data computation
- low memory and streaming algorithms
- analysis and experimental evaluation of algorithms

Submission guidelines

Abstracts of 2-3 pages must be submitted using a pdf format.

APEX submissions undergo a selection process based on a light refereeing
by the PC. APEX will not publish proceedings. Hence, presenting your paper
at APEX will not prevent you from submitting it to journals or to other
conferences. Similarly, it is acceptable to submit a paper that was
presented at an earlier conference. Submissions by PC members are allowed.

Talks will have around 20 minutes.

Papers must be submitted electronically at

The submission must be received by 23:59 (GMT) on December 7, 2011.
