[DMANET] ESA 2017 - call for papers

25th European Symposium on Algorithms - ESA 2017
4-6 September 2017, Vienna, Austria

Submission deadline: 21.04.2017

The European Symposium on Algorithms (ESA) is one of the premier
conferences on algorithms. The symposium covers research in all
aspects of the design, analysis, engineering, and application of
algorithms and data structures.

ESA 2017 has two tracks: the Design and Analysis Track (Track A) and
the Engineering and Applications Track (Track B).

ESA 2017 is organized in collaboration with the European Association
for Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS) and is a part of ALGO 2017


The symposium seeks original algorithmic contributions for problems
with relevant theoretical and/or practical applications: papers with a
strong emphasis on the theoretical analysis of algorithms should be
submitted to Track A, while papers reporting on the results of
extensive experimental evaluations and/or providing original
contributions to the engineering of algorithms for practical
applications should be submitted to Track B.

There will be a Best Student Paper Award as well as a Best Paper
Award, both sponsored by EATCS. In order for a paper to be considered
for the Best Student Paper Award, all of its authors are required to
be students.


Papers presenting original research in all areas of algorithmic
research are sought, including but not limited to:

Algorithm engineering
Algorithmic aspects of networks
Algorithmic game theory
Approximation algorithms
Computational biology
Computational finance
Computational geometry
Combinatorial optimization
Data compression
Data structures
Databases and information retrieval
Distributed and parallel computing
Graph algorithms
Hierarchical memories
Heuristics and meta-heuristics
Mathematical programming
Mobile computing
On-line algorithms
Parameterized algorithms
Pattern matching
Quantum computing
Randomized algorithms
Scheduling and resource allocation problems
Streaming algorithms


Submission: April 21, 19:59 GMT, 2017
Notification of acceptance: June 19, 2017
Final version: June 30, 2017
Symposium: September 4-6, 2017

Deadlines are firm: late submissions will not be considered.


Papers should be submitted electronically via the EasyChair submission

Detailed submission guidelines can be found at

ESA 2017 proceedings will be published in the Leibniz International
in Informatics (LIPIcs) series, based at Schloss Dagstuhl.
