[DMANET] WADS 2017 - Call for papers

WADS 2017
15th Algorithms and Data Structures Symposium
Memorial University of Newfoundland
St. John's, NL, Canada
July 31 to August 2, 2017

website: wads.org

The Algorithms and Data Structures Symposium, WADS, which alternates with the
Scandinavian Symposium and Workshops on Algorithm Theory, SWAT, is intended to
be a forum for researchers in the area of design and analysis of algorithms and
data structures.

We invite submissions of papers presenting original research on the theory and
applications of algorithms and data structures in all areas, including
combinatorics, databases, computational geometry, graphics, and parallel &
distributed computing. Contributors are invited to submit a full paper of up to
12 pages in Springer LNCS format including title, abstract and references. An
appendix, beyond the 12 pages, may be added and may be read at the reviewers'
discretion. All of the ideas necessary for an expert to verify the central
claims in the paper should be included, either in the paper or in the appendix.
If desired, the appendix can be a copy of the full paper.
Papers should be submitted via EasyChair
(easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wads2017), which can be accessed through the
conference website (wads.org).
