The 21st Japan-Korea Joint Workshop on
Algorithms and Computation (WAAC 2018)

August 26-27, 2018, Fukuoka, Japan

The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum for researchers working
on algorithms and the theory of computation, to promote the exchange of
recent results, to foster new collaborations among researchers.
Historically, the workshop has established for the purpose of
collaboration of researchers of Korea and Japan; however, participation
from any country is welcome.

The workshop is organized by the Special Interest Group on Algorithms
(SIGAL) of the Information Processing Society of Japan and the Special
Interest Group on Theoretical Computer Science (SIGTCS) of the Korean
Institute of Information Scientists and Engineers (KIISE).

The topics covered by the workshop are, but not limited to:
- Automata, languages and computability
- Algorithms (combinatorial/graph/geometric/randomized)
- VLSI and parallel algorithms
- Networks and distributed algorithms
- Learning theory and data mining
- Number theory and cryptography
- Graph drawing and visualization
- Computational logic
- Combinatorics and optimization

Authors are invited to submit papers up to 8 pages in English via the
EasyChair submission system at
no later than July 6, 2018.

Since the proceedings will be only distributed at the workshop,
submission of preliminary or extended versions of materials that are to
