Analysis of algorithms is a scientific basis for computation, providing
a link between abstract algorithms and the performance characteristics
of their implementations in the real world. The general effort to
predict precisely the performance of algorithms has come to involve
research in analytic combinatorics, the analysis of random discrete
structures, asymptotic analysis, exact and limiting distributions, and
other fields of inquiry in computer science, probability theory, and
enumerative combinatorics.  See .

We invite papers in

    * analytic algorithmics and combinatorics
    * probabilistic analysis of algorithms
    * randomized algorithms

We also welcome papers addressing problems such as: combinatorial
algorithms, string searching and pattern matching, sublinear algorithms
on massive data sets, network algorithms, graph algorithms, caching and
memory hierarchies, indexing, data mining, data compression, coding and
information theory, and computational finance. Papers are also welcome
that address bridges to research in related fields such as statistical
physics, computational biology, computational geometry, and simulation.

Keynote speakers (confirmed):

    Louigi Addario-Berry, McGill University, Canada
    Béla Bollobás, Univ. of Cambridge, UK and Univ. of Memphis, USA

Flajolet Award Lecture:

    Luc Devroye, McGill University, Canada


We invite you to submit an extended abstract (12 pages) or a short
abstract for a poster (2 pages) via the EasyChair system: .

The proceedings will be published electronically.  Authors of selected
accepted extended abstracts will be invited to submit full papers for
peer review to a special AofA issue (published circa late 2019) of the
journal Algorithmica.

Important dates:

    Submission deadline: EXTENDED TO February 15, 2018
    Notification: April 8, 2018
    Final version: May 8, 2018

If you intend to submit a paper, please consider submitting a title and
a short abstract early.
