[DMANET] IPEC 2017 Second Call For Papers


The 12th International Symposium on Parameterized and Exact Computation
(IPEC 2017) covers research in all aspects of parameterized and exact
algorithms and complexity. Papers presenting original research in the
area are sought, including but not limited to: new techniques for the
design and analysis of parameterized and exact algorithms,
fixed-parameter tractability results, parameterized complexity theory,
relationship between parameterized complexity and traditional complexity
classifications, applications of parameterized and exact computation,
and implementation issues of parameterized and exact algorithms. In
particular, studies on parameterized and exact computations for
real-world applications and algorithmic engineering are especially

IPEC 2017 will be part of ALGO 2017, which also hosts ESA 2017 and a
number of more specialized conferences and workshops. ALGO 2017 will
take place September 4-8, 2017, Vienna, Austria.

Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract of up to 12 pages
(including references) in LIPIcs style, in English, describing original
unpublished research. Simultaneous submission to other conferences with
published proceedings is not permitted. All claims made in the extended
abstract must be fully justified, either in an enclosed full version, or
by providing a reference to a full version published on prior
to the conference deadline. The full version will be read at the
discretion of the program committee. Authors must submit their papers
electronically. A detailed description of the electronic submission
process will be available at the symposium website. Program committee
members (except the co-chairs) are allowed to submit papers.

Accepted papers will be published in the symposium proceedings in the
Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics (LIPIcs) series, based
at Schloss Dagstuhl. Authors of accepted papers are expected to present
their work at the symposium, and to incorporate the comments from the
program committee. A journal special issue will be planned for selected
papers presented at IPEC 2017.

The program committee may award a Best Paper Award and an Excellent
Student Paper Award to one or more papers accepted to the symposium. For
the Excellent Student Paper Award, a student is someone who has not
received a PhD degree before the paper submission deadline. A paper is
eligible for the award if at least one co-author is a student, and at
most one co-author is not a student. If there is a non-student author,
the students' contributions must be substantial, and a student must give
the presentation at the conference.

The conference features an invited talk and an invited tutorial. The
invited talk will be given by one of the 2017 EATCS-IPEC Nerode Prize
winners, Fabrizio Grandoni. The prize was awarded for the paper "A
measure & conquer approach for the analysis of exact algorithms." [J.
ACM, 2009] by Fedor V. Fomin, Fabrizio Grandoni, and Dieter Kratsch. The
invited tutorial will be given by Mikolaj Bojanczyk.
