Call for Papers

16th International Symposium on Experimental Algorithms (SEA 2017)

June 21-23, 2017, London, United Kingdom



SEA (Symposium on Experimental Algorithms), previously known as WEA
(Workshop on Experimental Algorithms), is an international forum for
researchers in the area of design, analysis, and experimental evaluation
and engineering of algorithms, as well as in various aspects of
computational optimization and its applications. The preceding symposia
were held in Riga, Monte Verità, Rio de Janeiro, Santorini, Menorca Island,
Rome, Cape Cod, Dortmund, Ischia Island, Crete, Bordeaux, Rome, Copenhagen,
Paris, and St. Petersburg.

SEA aims to attract papers from both the CS and the OR/Mathematical
Programming communities.

The main theme of the symposium is the role of experimentation and
of algorithm engineering techniques in the design and evaluation of
algorithms and data structures. Submissions should present significant
contributions supported by experimental evaluation, methodological
issues in the design and interpretation of experiments, the use of
(meta-) heuristics, or application-driven case studies that deepen
the understanding of the complexity of a problem.

In 2017 the proceedings of SEA will be published for the first time
in the Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics (LIPIcs)
open-access series.

Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract not exceeding
12 single-spaced pages, including references, figures, title, authors,
affiliations, e-mail addresses, and a short (one paragraph) abstract.
Authors are strongly advised to use the LaTeX style file supplied for
the LIPIcs style here:


Final proceedings papers must be camera-ready in this format. A clearly
marked Appendix, which will not count toward the 12 page submission
limit, can be included and will be read at the referees' discretion.

All submissions have to be made via the EasyChair submission page for
the conference at:


Papers submitted for review should present original, previously
unpublished work or surveys of important results. At the time the
extended abstract is submitted to SEA, and for the entire review period,
the paper (or essentially the same paper) should not be under review by
any other conference with published proceedings or by a scientific
journal. At least one author of each accepted paper will be expected to
attend the conference and present the paper.
