[DMANET] Call for Papers -- Seventh International Conference on FUN WITH ALGORITHMS (FUN 2014)

Apologies for multiple copies.


FUN 2014

Seventh International Conference on FUN WITH ALGORITHMS

July 1-3, 2014, Lipari Island, Sicily, Italy

The Seventh International conference on Fun with Algorithms (FUN 2014)
is dedicated to the use, design, and analysis of algorithms and data
structures, focusing on results that provide amusing, witty but
nonetheless original and scientifically profound contributions to the
area. The previous FUNs were held in Elba Island, Italy; in
Castiglioncello, Tuscany, Italy; in Ischia Island, Italy; and in San
Servolo Island, Venice, Italy. Special issues of Theoretical Computer
Science, Discrete Applied Mathematics, and Theory of Computing Systems
were dedicated to them.

TOPICS OF INTEREST include (but are not limited to):

FUN with biological algorithms
FUN with combinatorial algorithms
FUN with cryptographic algorithms
FUN with distributed algorithms
FUN with game-theoretic algorithms
FUN with geometrical algorithms
FUN with graph algorithms
FUN with internet algorithms
FUN with mobile algorithms
FUN with optimization algorithms
FUN with parallel algorithms
FUN with randomized algorithms
FUN with robotics algorithms
FUN with space-conscious algorithms
FUN with string algorithms
FUN with visualization of algorithms
