The aim of TAPAS is to provide a forum for presentation of original  research in the design, implementation and evaluation of algorithms.  TAPAS is dedicated to the use, design and evaluation of algorithms for  combinatorial optimization problems (either efficient optimal or  efficient approximation algorithms) and to real-world applications,  engineering and experimental analysis of algorithms. It aims, in particular, at fostering the cooperation among researchers  in computer science, networking, discrete mathematics, mathematical  programming and operations research.  [Topics]  The conference will focus on the design, engineering, theoretical and  experimental performance analysis of algorithms for problems arising in  different areas of computation. We invite submissions that present  significant case studies in theoretical and experimental analysis and  evaluation of algorithms with specific areas including communications  networks, combinatorial optimization and approximation, parallel and  distributed computing, computer systems and architecture, economics, game theory, social networks and the world wide web. Novel uses of  discrete algorithms in all disciplines and the evaluation of algorithms  for realistic environments are particularly welcome.  Submitted papers will consider a succinct summary of the problem and of  the results obtained (emphasizing the significance and potential impact  of the research), and a clear comparison with related work, all  accessible to non-specialist readers. The remainder of the extended  abstract should provide sufficient detail to allow the program committee  to evaluate the validity, quality, and relevance of the contribution.  [Publications]  The proceedings will be published by Springer (Lecture Notes in Computer  Science).  [Paper submission]  The maximum length of the paper (excluding the optional appendix) is 12  pages. Proofs and any other material omitted due to space constraints must be  placed in an appendix to be read by the program committee members at  their discretion.
