[DMANET] IPEC 2014 - first call for papers

Call For Papers

IPEC 2014

The 9th International Symposium on Parameterized and Exact Computation
Wrocław, Poland, September 10-12, 2014

The 9th International Symposium on Parameterized and Exact Computation
(IPEC 2014) covers research in all aspects of parameterized/exact
algorithms and complexity. Papers presenting original research in the
area are sought, including but not limited to: new techniques for the
design and analysis of parameterized and exact algorithms,
fixed-parameter tractability results, parameterized complexity theory,
relationship between parameterized complexity and traditional
complexity classifications, applications of parameterized and exact
computation, and implementation issues of parameterized and exact
algorithms. In particular, studies on parameterized and exact
computations for real-world applications and algorithmic engineering
are especially encouraged.

IPEC 2014 will be part of ALGO 2014, which also hosts ESA 2014 and a
number of more specialized conferences and workshops. ALGO 2014 will
take place September 8-12, 2014, Wrocław, Poland

Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract in English no
longer than 12 pages (excluding references and appendices) using at
least 11-point font, in LNCS-style, describing original unpublished
research. Simultaneous submission to other conferences with published
proceedings is not permitted. Additional details as necessary may be
included in a clearly marked appendix that will be read at the
discretion of the program committee. Authors must submit their papers
electronically. A detailed description of the electronic submission
process is available at the symposium website. Program committee
members (except the co-chairs) are allowed to submit papers.

Accepted papers will be published in the symposium proceedings in the
Springer series Lecture Notes in Computer Science. Authors of accepted
papers are expected to present their work at the symposium, and to
incorporate the comments from the program committee.

The program committee may award an Excellent Student Paper Award to
one or more papers accepted to the symposium. A paper is eligible for
the award if all authors are students at the time of submission, where
a student is someone who has not been awarded a PhD before the paper
submission deadline.

Additionally this year there will be a poster session, hence authors
are also invited to submit their posters to IPEC 2014.


Selected papers of IPEC 2014 will be invited for a special issue of


The 2014 EATCS-IPEC Nerode Prize for outstanding papers in the area of
multivariate algorithmics will be awarded during IPEC 2014 to Hans L.
Bodlaender, Rodney G. Downey, Michael R. Fellows, Lance Fortnow, Danny
Hermelin, and Rahul Santhanam. Hans L. Bodlaender will give an invited
talk at IPEC 2014.
