[DMANET] 1st CFP 11th International Symposium on Parameterized and Exact Computation, Aarhus, Denmark, Aug. 23-26 2016

Dear Colleague,

you are kindly invited to submit a contribution to the 11th International Symposium on Parameterized and Exact Computation, August 23 - 26, 2016, Aarhus, Denmark.
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.

*Important Dates

Abstract submission deadline: June 12, 2016
Paper submission deadline: June 15, 2016
Notification date: July 25, 2016
Symposium: August 23-26, 2016
Final version due: September 30, 2016


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, including references. Additional material ‎may be included in an appendix section.‎ Authors must submit their papers electronically via <>.

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 homepage: <>
· 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The paper should describe original unpublished research.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

A special issue of the journal Algorithmica <> is tentatively planned for selected papers presented at the IPEC 2016 symposium.
