[DMANET] Please announce FPT Workshop 25 July, Wellington, New Zealand

Welcome to the Parameterized / Multivariate Complexity Data Wrangling
for Social Good Workshop. The workshop will be held in Wellington, New
Zealand on 25 July 2018. Register by sending an email to Catherine
McCartin <>. There is no fee for the workshop.
For more information see

Nearly twenty years after the seminal book by Downey and Fellows, this
workshop is intended to highlight how FPT practitioners are serving the
community, employing parameterized algorithm design and application for
social good in a wide variety of areas. There has been tremendous
progress in bringing the toolkit to support fields such as AI,
computational biology, computational social choice and other
disciplines, and subfields of computer science. The PACE Parameterized
Algorithms and Computational Experiments Challenge is helping deepen the
relationship between parameterized algorithmics and practice.

The main objective of this workshop is to stimulate discussion on
outreach to other disciplines or subfields for useful purpose of FPT. To
encourage wide participation and discussion, there will be no formal
publication of workshop proceedings. Accepted papers will be posted
online for the benefit of the workshop participants. Submission of
preliminary work and papers being prepared for other major venues are
invited. Participants may attend via Skype.

The workshop is informal and broad, and appropriate for PhD, PostDoc and
Masters students as well as more senior academics.

Come early and attend CMSC 2018 (See to explore ways of
sharing your research ideas broadly, to non-science audiences. Email for more information.
