*Call for Papers*


Manuscripts are invited for a Special Issue on Parameterized Complexity published by the "Tsinghua Science and Technology".
The field of parameterized complexity is a vibrant research area and has witnessed a tremendous growth in the last two decades.
It has become a central area in theoretical computer science, with applications to bioinformatics, artificial intelligence and many other areas.

The Special Issue invites regular and survey papers pertaining to parameterized complexity, for example, Design and analysis of
parameterized and kernelization algorithms, Complexity and lower bounds, Connections between parameterized complexity and
approximation. Other topics in parameterized complexity are also welcome.

The Special Issue will have a dedication to Professor Janier Chen, Texas A&M University and Central South University of China,
on the occasion of his 60th birthday, in recognition of his valuable contributions to the field of parameterized complexity.

"Tsinghua Science and Technology" began publication in 1996. It is an international academic journal published bimonthly by
Tsinghua University, one of the most prestigious universities in China. This journal aims at presenting state-of-art scientific
achievements in computer science and other IT fields. "Tsinghua Science and Technology" has published fourteen Special Issues
