[DMANET] ESA 2018 - second call for papers

            26th Annual European Symposium on Algorithms -
ESA 2018
                20-22 August 2018, Helsinki, Finland

                 Submission deadline: 22.04.2018


The European Symposium on Algorithms (ESA) is one of the premier
on algorithms. The symposium covers research in all aspects of the
analysis, engineering, and application of algorithms and data structures.

ESA 2018 will be part of ALGO 2018, which also hosts ALGOCLOUD,

Call for papers

The symposium seeks original algorithmic contributions for problems with
theoretical and/or practical applications: papers with a strong emphasis
on the
theoretical analysis of algorithms should be submitted to Track A, while
reporting on the results of extensive experimental evaluations and/or
original contributions to the engineering of algorithms for practical
should be submitted to Track B.

For Track B, ESA 2018 will conduct an experiment with two independent
PCs, both
of which will follow the usual procedure for reviewing the submissions.
More details
about the experiment are provided on this webpage:

There will be a Best Student Paper Award as well as a Best Paper Award,
sponsored by EATCS. In order for a paper to be considered for the Best
Paper Award, all of its authors are required to be students.


Papers presenting original research in all areas of algorithmic research
are sought,
including but not limited to:

Algorithm engineering
Algorithmic aspects of networks
Algorithmic game theory
Approximation algorithms
Computational biology
Computational finance
Computational geometry
Combinatorial optimization
Data compression
Data structures
Databases and information retrieval
Distributed and parallel computing
Graph algorithms
Hierarchical memories
Heuristics and meta-heuristics
Mathematical programming
Mobile computing
