The symposium covers research in all aspects of parameterized and
exact exponential-time algorithms and complexity. In particular,
studies on parameterized and exact computations for real-world applications
and algorithmic engineering are especially encouraged.

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 exponential-time algorithms
* Fixed-parameter tractability results
* Parameterized complexity theory
* Relation between parameterized complexity and
traditional complexity classifications
* Applications of parameterized and exact exponential-time computation
* Implementation issues of parameterized and exact exponential-time algorithms

Submission guidelines
Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract in English
not exceeding 12 pages, excluding appendices. Authors must submit
their papers electronically via EasyChair.

The usage of the LIPIcs style file is mandatory; no changes to font size,
page margins, etc., are permitted. Submissions not in the correct format
will not be considered. Program committee members, except the chairs,
are allowed to submit papers. The LIPIcs style files are available at:
* LIPIcs:
* Tar ball:

The paper should describe original unpublished research. It should contain
a summary of the main results, their motivation and importance,
and evidence of their correctness. Additional details and proofs may
be included in a clearly marked appendix that will be read at
the discretion of the program committee. Simultaneous submission
to other conferences with published proceedings is not permitted.

Excellent Student-Paper Award
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 at most one of its authors has received a PhD degree
before the paper submission deadline. if there is a non-student author,
the students' contributions must be substantial, and a student
must give the presentation at the conference.

Accepted Papers
Accepted papers will be published in the symposium proceedings. Authors
of accepted papers must present their work at the symposium. Authors
are expected to incorporate the comments from the referees into
the final version of their paper. The proceedings will appear
in the Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics (LIPIcs) series,
based at Schloss Dagstuhl. This guarantees perennial, free and
easy electronic access, while the authors retain the rights over their work.
In addition, the proceedings will also be available as archives in
the open access electronic repository HAL. With their submission,
authors consent to sign a license authorizing the program committee chairs
to organize the electronic publication of their paper, provided
the paper is accepted.

Journal Special Issue
Authors of selected papers at IPEC 2015 will be invited to submit
extended versions of their papers to a special issue of Algorithmica.
