Submission due / June 19, 2015
Notification / August 31, 2015
Final version / September 21, 2015

The submission should contain a scholarly exposition of ideas, techniques, and results,
including motivation and a comparison with related work. The main text, including title,
abstract, and references, should not exceed 11 pages in LNCS style. An optional appendix
should be used to provide proof details that do not fit in the main text. Submitted papers
must describe unpublished work. Authors should not submit papers with the same results or
essentially the same results that are accepted or published or under review by a conference
with refereed proceedings or a journal. Only electronic submission will be allowed and only
pdf files will be accepted. It will be done via Easychair:

At least one author of an accepted paper is expected to present the paper at the conference
as a registered participant.

The proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series. Selected papers
will be invited to special issues of Algorithmica and International Journal of Computational
Geometry and Applications.

A Best Paper and a Best Student Paper may be awarded. A paper is eligible for the Best Student
Paper Award if all authors are full-time students at the time of submission. To indicate that
a submission is eligible, please add the phrase "Eligible for the Best Student Paper Award" in
the abstract.

This conference is sponsored by Kayamori Foundation of Information Science Advancement, Nagoya
University, Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research on Innovative Areas "Exploring the limits of
computation (ELC)", "JST ERATO Kawarabayashi Large Graph Project and "JST CREST Foundations
of Innovative Algorithms for Big Data".
