Call for Papers

The 28th International Symposium on Algorithms and Computation
(ISAAC 2017)
December 9-12, 2017, Phuket, Thailand

Submission Deadline: June 29, 2017 11:59PM (PDT)

The 28th International Symposium on Algorithms and Computation
(ISAAC 2017) will be held in Phuket, Thailand on December 9-12,
2017. The symposium is intended to provide a forum for
researchers working in algorithms and theory of computation.
Papers presenting original research in the areas of algorithms
and theory of computation are sought. Papers in relevant
applied areas are also welcomed. The topics include, but are
not limited to:
Algorithmic game theory
Algorithms and data structures
Approximation algorithms
Combinatorial optimization
Computational biology
Computational complexity
Computational geometry
Experimental algorithms
Graph drawing and graph algorithms
Internet algorithms
Online algorithms
Parallel and distributed algorithms
Quantum computing
Randomized algorithms.

Important Dates

June 29, 2017: Submission Deadline
August 31, 2017: Notification
October 3, 2017: Camera-Ready Version Due
December 9-12, 2017: ISAAC

Submission Guidelines

Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract or full
paper of at most 12 pages with an optional appendix. The
submission should contain a scholarly exposition of ideas,
techniques, and results, including motivation and a clear
comparison with related work. They must not be submitted
simultaneously to another conference with refereed proceedings
or to a journal. Drafts which contain essentially the same
results as papers under review in other conferences or
journals cannot be submitted to ISAAC 2017. Exempted are
workshops and conferences without formal proceedings, but
possibly with handouts containing short abstracts. At least
one author of an accepted paper is required to present the
paper at the conference as a registered participant.

Papers must be formatted in LaTeX, using the LIPIcs style file,
which is available at .
The maximum length of the paper (including title, the list of
authors, abstract, references, but excluding the optional
appendix) is 12 pages. Do not change the margin size or the
font, do not make a separate title page, etc.: use the LIPIcs
style file as given.

Proofs omitted due to space constraints must be placed in an
appendix that is to be read by the program committee members
at their discretion and will not be published as part of the
proceedings. Thus the paper without the appendix should be
able to stand on its own.

Submissions are due on June 29, 2017 11:59PM (PDT). Only
electronic submission will be allowed via the easychair
submission server .

These guidelines are strict: papers failing to adhere to the
guidelines (by not providing the omitted proofs in an appendix,
being more than 12 pages, or not being in LIPIcs format) will
be rejected without consideration of their merits.

Availability of Full Versions

Polished full versions are expected to be published in refereed
journals after the ISAAC conference. Upon acceptance, if there
is an omitted detail in the camera-ready version for ISAAC,
authors are encouraged to upload a full version of the accepted
paper to a preprint server, e.g., arXiv, ECCC, or an
e-repository at universities/institutes, so that interested
readers can access the full proofs that are omitted in ISAAC
proceedings. When authors refer to omitted proofs in ISAAC
proceedings, citation to the accessible full version is
desired. However, uploading a full version is not mandatory
for authors.

Special Issues

Special issues in Algorithmica and International Journal of
Computational Geometry and Applications are planned for
selected papers from ISAAC 2017.


The Best Paper and the Best Student Paper will be awarded. A
paper is eligible for the Best Student Paper if all authors are
full-time students at the time of submission. To indicate that
a submission is eligible, please mark the checkbox ``Eligible
for best student paper'' in the web form on the submission
