[DMANET] SEA 2013 - 1st Call for Papers


12th International Symposium on Experimental Algorithms
June 5-7, 2013
Rome, Italy

Call for Papers



Submission deadline: January 23, 2013
Author notification: March 8, 2013
Camera-ready submission: March 24, 2013


SEA, previously known as WEA (Workshop on Experimental Algorithms),
is an international forum for researchers in the area of design,
analysis, and experimental evaluation and engineering of algorithms,
as well as in various aspects of computational optimization and
its applications. The preceding symposia were held in Riga, Monte
Verita, Rio de Janeiro, Santorini, Menorca Island, Rome, Cape Cod,
Dortmund, Ischia Island, Crete, and Bordeaux.

The main theme of the symposium is the role of experimentation and
of algorithm engineering techniques in the design and evaluation of
algorithms and data structures. Submissions should present
significant contributions supported by experimental evaluation,
methodological issues in the design and interpretation of
experiments, the use of (meta-)heuristics, or application-driven
case studies that deepen the understanding of a problem's

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Algorithm Engineering
- Algorithmic Libraries
- Algorithmic Mechanism Design
- Analysis of Algorithms
- Algorithms for Memory Hierarchies
- Approximation Techniques

Authors are invited to submit high-quality manuscripts reporting
original unpublished research and recent developments in the topics
related to the symposium. Simultaneous submission to other
conferences or workshops with published proceedings is not allowed.

Submissions must not exceed 12 pages formatted according to LNCS
style plus an optional, clearly marked appendix of reasonable
length (to be read at the program committee's discretion). All papers
will be peer reviewed and comments will be provided to the authors.

The submission system can be accessed via


Accepted papers will appear in the SEA 2013 proceedings published
by Springer in the LNCS series.
