[DMANET] ESA 2010 Call for Papers

18th European Symposium on Algorithms (ESA 2010) - Call for Papers

The European Symposium on Algorithms (ESA) is one of the premier conferences on
algorithms. The symposium covers research in all aspects of the design,
analysis, and application of algorithms and data structures. ESA 2010 has two
tracks: the Design and Analysis Track focuses on the theoretical aspects, while
the Engineering and Applications Track focuses on experimental aspects and
applications. ESA 2010 is sponsored by the European Association for Theoretical
Computer Science (EATCS) and organized as part of ALGO 2010.


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

- Algorithmic aspects of networks
- Algorithmic game theory
- Approximation algorithms
- Combinatorial optimization
- Computational biology
- Computational finance
- Distributed algorithms
- Computational geometry
- Data compression
- Data structures
- Databases and information retrieval
- Graph algorithms
- Hierarchical memories
- Machine learning
- Mathematical programming
- Mobile computing
- On-line algorithms
- Parallel algorithms
- Parametrized complexity
- Pattern matching
- Quantum computing
- Randomized algorithms
- Streaming algorithms

Submission guidelines

Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract or full paper of at most 12
pages and an optional appendix.

Papers must be formatted in LaTeX, using the LNCS style file
(availablethrough the conference website).

The maximum length of the paper (including references, but excluding the optional
appendix) is 12 pages.

Proofs omitted due to space constraints must be placed in an appendix
to be read by the program committee members at their discretion.

These guidelines are strict: papers failing to adhere to the guidelines (by
not being in LNCS format, being more than 12 pages, or not providing the omitted
proofs in an appendix) will be rejected without consideration of their merits.

Papers should be submitted electronically via the EasyChair submission system,
accessible via the conference website. Simultaneous submission to other
conferences with published proceedings, or to both tracks of ESA 2010, is not
permitted.There will be a Best Student Paper Award, as well as a Best Paper
Award. The ESA proceedings will be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer
Science series by Springer-Verlag.

Important dates
- Submission deadline: Monday, April 12, 2010
- Notification: Friday, June 4, 2010
- Final version due: Monday, June 28, 2010
- Symposium: September 6-8, 2010 (Liverpool, UK)

More information
ESA 2010 will be co-located with WABI (10th Workshop on Algorithms in
Bioinformatics, September 6-8), ATMOS (10th Workshop on Algorithmic Approaches
for Transportation Modelling, Optimization, and Systems, September 9), and WAOA
(8th Workshop on Approximation and Online Algorithms, September 9-10).
