[DMANET] 31st Annual European Symposium on Algorithms — ESA 2023 — Call for Papers

31st Annual European Symposium on Algorithms — ESA 2023 — Call for Papers


The European Symposium on Algorithms (ESA), one of the premier conferences
on algorithms, is organized in collaboration with the European Association
for Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS) and is a part of ALGO 2023, to be
held in beautiful Amsterdam.

Important Dates

Paper submission deadline: 28 April, 23:59 AoE. (EasyChair submission

Notification: 23 June

Camera ready: 30 June

Conference: 4-6 September, 2023, in Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Call for Papers

The symposium seeks original algorithmic contributions for problems with
relevant theoretical and/or practical applications. Papers with a strong
emphasis on the theoretical analysis of algorithms should be submitted to
Track A, while papers reporting on the results of extensive experimental
evaluations and/or providing original contributions to the engineering of
algorithms for practical applications should be submitted to Track B.
Submissions that prove or explain known results in a much clearer, simpler
or more elegant way than done before should be submitted to Track S. There
will be a Best Student Paper Award as well as a Best Paper Award, both
sponsored by EATCS. In order for a paper to be considered for the Best
Student Paper Award, all of its authors are required to be students.

Paper submission and proceedings

Papers should be submitted electronically via the EasyChair submission
system. The ESA 2023 proceedings will be published in the Leibniz
International Proceedings in Informatics (LIPIcs) series.

Submission Guidelines

Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract or full paper of at most
12 pages excluding the title page, references, and an optional appendix.
The submission should be typeset using a 10-point or larger font in a
single-column format with ample spacing throughout and 2cm margins all
around on A4-size paper. We recommend, but not strictly require, making
your initial submission adhere to LIPIcs publication guidelines. Proofs
omitted due to space constraints must be placed in an appendix. This
appendix can even comprise an entire full version of the paper. The
appendix will be read by the program committee members at their discretion.
In particular, appendices of accepted papers are not going to be published
in the proceedings. The main part of the submission should therefore
contain a clear technical presentation of the merits of the paper,
including a discussion of the paper's importance within the context of
prior work and a description of the key technical and conceptual ideas used
to achieve its main claims. These guidelines are strict: submissions
deviating significantly from these guidelines risk being rejected without
consideration of their merits. Papers should be submitted electronically
via the EasyChair submission system. Results previously published (or
scheduled for publication) in another conference proceedings or journal
will not be accepted at ESA. Simultaneous submission to other conferences
with published proceedings, journals, or to multiple tracks of ESA 2023, is
also not permitted. By submitting a paper the authors acknowledge that in
case of acceptance, at least one of the authors must register at ALGO 2023,
attend the conference, on-site and present the paper.

Double-Blind Reviewing

The conference will employ a lightweight double-blind reviewing process.
Submissions should not reveal the identity of the authors in any way. In
particular, authors' names, affiliations, and email addresses should not
appear at the beginning or in the body of the submission. Authors should
ensure that any references to their own related work is in the third person
(e.g., not "We build on our previous work …" but rather "We build on the
work of …"). The purpose of the double-blind reviewing is to help PC
members and external reviewers come to an initial judgement about the paper
without bias, not to make it impossible for them to discover the authors if
they were to try. Nothing should be done in the name of anonymity that
weakens the submission or makes the job of reviewing the paper more
difficult. In particular, important references should not be omitted or
anonymized. In addition, authors should feel free to disseminate their
ideas or draft versions of their paper as they normally would. For example,
authors may post drafts of their papers on the web, submit them to arXiv,
and give talks on their research ideas. In case there exist publicly
available versions of the submission online, the authors might mention this
in their submission (without providing references/links), and briefly
explain the differences if any. Alternatively, they might communicate the
details to the chairs, who will keep them confidential unless revealing
them to the PC is needed for a fair judgement. Authors with further
questions on double-blind reviewing are encouraged to contact the PC chairs.
