[DMANET] 2nd CFP SEA 2015


14th International Symposium on Experimental Algorithms

June 29 - July 1, 2015
Paris, France

Call for Papers



Submission deadline: February 6, 2015
Author notification: March 16, 2015
Camera-ready submission: April 3, 2015


SEA 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, Bordeaux, Rome and Copenhagen.

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 the complexity of a

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.


Accepted papers will appear in the SEA 2015 proceedings published
by Springer in the LNCS series.
