The aim of ALENEX is to provide a forum for the presentation of original research in the design,
implementation, and experimental evaluation of algorithms and data structures.
Typical submissions will include an extensive experimental analysis of nontrivial algorithmic results,
ideally bridging the gap between theory and practice. We also invite submissions that address
methodological issues and standards in the experimental evaluation of algorithms and data structures.
Some possible areas of applied algorithmic research include but are not limited to databases;
networks, including web applications; operations research; and computational problems in the
natural sciences or engineering. Submissions are encouraged that address algorithms and data
structures for advanced models of computing including memory hierarchies and parallel computing,
ranging from instruction parallelism over multicore computing to exascale and cloud computing.

ALENEX is co-located with the ACM-SIAM Symposium on Discrete Algorithms (SODA17), and
Analytic Algorithmics and Combinatorics (ANALCO17). Since researchers in all fields are approaching
the problem of learning detailed information about the performance of particular algorithms, we expect
that interesting synergies will develop. Proceedings of ALENEX and ANALCO will be published openly
and electronically in January 2017. A special section of the ACM Journal of Experimental Algorithmics
will be dedicated to selected papers from ALENEX17.

August 10, 2016, 11:00 PM GMT - Deadline - Short Abstract Submission and Paper Registration Deadline
August 15, 2016, 11:00 PM GMT - Deadline - Full Paper Submission
Acceptance/rejection notices will be sent to authors via email in early October 2016.

Pre-registration: October 16, 2016
Regular Registration: December 30, 2016
Onsite Registration: January 16-19, 2017

October 15, 2016


Submissions must be registered by August 10, 2016, no later than 11:00 PM GMT.
A title, list of authors and abstract is required by this date in order for a full paper to be considered.

Full paper submissions are due by August 15, 2016, no later than 11:00 PM GMT.
Submissions received after this time will not be considered. All submissions must be in PDF format
and submitted electronically. Submitting authors are encouraged to post their submission on their website.

Papers should be submitted in the form of an extended abstract, which begins with the title of the paper,
each author's name, affiliation, and e-mail address, followed by a clear statement of the problem considered,
a succinct summary of the results obtained, a brief discussion of the significance and novelty of the research,
and a clear comparison with related work. The remainder of the extended abstract should provide sufficient
detail to allow the program committee to evaluate the validity, quality, and relevance of the contribution.
Authors may include a clearly marked appendix, which will be read at the discretion of the program committee.

Submissions should be typeset in single column format, using 11-point or larger font, with reasonable
margins and line spacing. Excluding the title page and bibliography, the extended abstract must not
exceed ten pages. Supplementary material may be included in the appendix and will be read at the
discretion of the reviewers.

A link to the submission server will be activated at

Simultaneous Submissions

Results previously published in another conference proceedings or journal (or scheduled for publication
prior to ALENEX) will not be accepted. Simultaneous submissions of the results to another conference
with a published proceedings is not allowed. At the time that the author signs SIAM's copyright transfer
agreement, the author must affirm that no copyright transfer agreement permitting the publication of a
similar paper in a journal or elsewhere has been signed.

SIAM will provide final paper submission instructions to authors of accepted papers. Final papers may
not exceed 15 pages in double column format.

* Contributions to be spread via DMANET are submitted to
* Replies to a message carried on DMANET should NOT be
* addressed to DMANET but to the original sender. The
* original sender, however, is invited to prepare an
* update of the replies received and to communicate it
* via DMANET.
