International Workshop on Approximation, Parameterized and EXact

Satellite Workshop of ICALP 2013
July 6-7, 2013, Riga, Latvia

Call for papers

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

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

- Exact and parameterized algorithms
- Moderately exponential and parameterized approximation algorithms -
Approximation, online and reoptimization algorithms
- Massive data computation
- Low memory and streaming algorithms
- Analysis and experimental evaluation of algorithms

The EasyChair system will be used for the abstracts submission. Abstracts
of 2-4 pages must be submitted via
using a pdf format. APEX submissions will undergo a selection process
based on a light refereeing by the Program Committee. 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 has been presented at an earlier
conference. Submissions by PC members are allowed. Most talks will be 20
minutes long. Some submissions will be selected for 30 minutes talks.

APEX'2013 will be held in the University of Latvia, Riga, Latvia on July
6-7, 2013.

Daniel Marx, Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Hungary
Maxim Sviridenko, University of Warwick, United Kingdom
