Algorithm Engineering and Experiments (ALENEX19)
January 7-8, 2019
Westin San Diego, San Diego, California, USA

The 21st Meeting on Algorithm Engineering and Experiments (ALENEX)
will take place in San Diego, CA on January 7-8, 2019. The aim of
ALENEX is to provide a forum for the presentation of original research
in the design, implementation, and experimental evaluation of
algorithms and data structures. Typical submissions will include an
extensive experimental analysis of nontrivial algorithmic results,
ideally bridging the gap between theory and practice. We also invite
submissions that address methodological issues and standards in the
experimental evaluation of algorithms and data structures.

Relevant areas of applied algorithmic research include but are not
limited to: databases; geometry; graphs and networks, including web
applications; operations research; combinatorial aspects of scientific
computing; and computational problems in the natural sciences or

Also encouraged are submissions that address algorithms and data
structures for advanced models of computing, including memory
hierarchies and parallel computing, ranging from instruction
parallelism over multicore computing to high-performance and cloud

ALENEX is co-located with the ACM-SIAM Symposium on Discrete
Algorithms (SODA19), Analytic Algorithmics and Combinatorics
(ANALCO19) and Symposium on Simplicity in Algorithms. Since
researchers in all fields are approaching the problem of learning
detailed information about the performance of particular algorithms,
we expect that interesting synergies will develop.

Proceedings of ALENEX and ANALCO will be published openly and
electronically in January 2019 as SIAM ePubs. A special section of the
ACM Journal of Experimental Algorithmics will be dedicated to selected
papers from ALENEX19.

ALENEX is supported by SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics).

An ALENEX submission should be original work that has not been
published (or is under review) in other peer-reviewed conferences or
journals. Reviewing will be double-blind. Authors must take reasonable
measures to prevent their identities from being easily deduced from
the submission (e.g., no author names, no obvious self-citations).
Upon registering a submission, the authors will declare conflicts of
interest with PC members. Submissions co-authored by PC members are
allowed, but will be held to a higher standard than other submissions.

Submissions should be in pdf, formatted using the LaTeX2e SIAM SODA
macro titled "soda2e_022817.zip (LaTeX2e)" (available at
http://www.siam.org/proceedings/macros.php). In particular, papers
should begin with 1 page containing the title and abstract, followed
by at most 10 pages of the body of the paper, followed by references
and an optional appendix. Content in the appendix will be read at the
discretion of the reviewers.
