March 29--31, 2016 - Kathmandu, Nepal

International Workshop on Algorithms and Computation (WALCOM) is
intended to provide an international forum for researchers working in
the areas of algorithms and computation.
WALCOM 2016 will be held during March 29- 31, 2016 at Kathmandu, Nepal.


The range of topics within the scope of the workshop on algorithms and
computation includes (but is not limited to): Approximation
Algorithms, Algorithmic Graph, Theory and Combinatorics, Combinatorial
Algorithms, Combinatorial Optimization, Computational Biology,
Computational Complexity, Computational Geometry, Discrete Geometry,
Data Structures, Experimental Algorithm Methodologies, Graph
Algorithms, Graph Drawing, Parallel and Distributed Algorithms,
Parameterized Complexity, Network Optimization, Online
Algorithms,Randomized Algorithms, String Algorithms.


Authors are invited to submit papers (extended abstracts) describing
original research of theoretical or practical significance to
algorithms and computation. Papers should not exceed 12 pages in LNCS
Papers significantly shorter than 12 pages are also welcome. If the
authors feel that more details are essential to substantiate the main
claim of the paper, they may include a clearly marked appendix that
will be read at the discretion of the Program Committee. Only
electronic submission will be allowed. Submitted papers must
describe work not previously published. They must not be submitted
simultaneously to another conference with refereed proceedings or to a


Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings which
will be included in the Springer- Verlag LNCS series. Selected papers
will be published in special issues of TCS and JGAA.


The workshop will be held at the Asian Institute of Technology and
Management, Khumaltar Height, Lalitpur, Nepal.
