FUN 2018 - 3rd Call for Papers

9th International Conference on Fun with Algorithms
June 13-15, 2018. La Maddalena, Maddalena Islands, Italy



FUN is dedicated to the use, design and analysis of algorithms and
data structures, focusing on results that provide amusing, witty but
nonetheless original and scientifically profound contributions to the
area. The topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
FUN with biological algorithms
FUN with combinatorial algorithms
FUN with cryptographic algorithms
FUN with distributed algorithms
FUN with game-theoretic algorithms
FUN with geometrical algorithms
FUN with graph algorithms
FUN with mobile algorithms
FUN with Web algorithms
FUN with machine learning algorithms
FUN with parallel algorithms
FUN with optimization algorithms
FUN with randomized algorithms
FUN with robotics algorithms
FUN with space-conscious algorithms
FUN with string algorithms
FUN with visualization of algorithms


Contributors must submit their papers using the Easychair system.
Submissions should not exceed 12 pages including front page and references.
Additionally, if full details of proofs do not fit into the page
limit, a clearly marked appendix containing the remaining details must
be included; this appendix will not be regarded as part of the
submission and will be considered only at the discretion of the
program committee. Submissions deviating substantially from this format
risk rejection without consideration of their merits.

Papers submitted for review should represent original, previously
unpublished work. At the time the paper is submitted to the conference,
and for the entire review period, the paper (or essentially the same
paper) must not be under review by any other conference with published
proceedings or by a scientific journal.
At least one author of every accepted paper is required to register
and present the paper at the symposium.


The proceedings are going to be published in the LIPIcs series.


Authors of accepted papers are expected to submit the final, camera-ready version of their paper in LIPIcs style:
(deadline to be announced) on the EasyChair website. The program committee will determine appropriate time allocations for presentations (between 20 and 45 minutes).


Submission deadline: Feb 23, 2018
Author notification: April 25, 2018
Symposium: June 13-15, 2018


Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended
versions of their work to a special issue of Theoretical Computer
