[DMANET] IPEC 2023 - Call for papers


The International Symposium on Parameterized and Exact Computation
(IPEC) is an annual conference covering all aspects of parameterized
and exact algorithms and complexity. Its 18th edition will be part of
ALGO 2023, which also hosts ESA 2023 and other specialized conferences
and workshops. We are excited that ALGO 2023 is planned as an
in-person conference and we look forward to seeing you there!

IPEC 2023 invites papers presenting original research in the area of
parameterized and exact algorithms and complexity. Topics include but
are not limited to the following:

- new techniques for the design and analysis of parameterized and
exact algorithms;

- fixed-parameter tractability and kernelization results;

- parameterized complexity theory;

- parameterized (in)approximability results;

- relationships between parameterized complexity and traditional
complexity classifications;

- applications of parameterized and exact computation;

- engineering and experimentation of exact, parameterized, and
kernelization algorithms.

We plan to have an invited talk by the 2023 EATCS-IPEC Nerode Prize
winner. In addition, IPEC also hosts the presentation of the results
from PACE 2023 (the Parameterized Algorithms and Computational
Experiments Challenge). This year, the topic of PACE is the parameter
twinwidth. For more details on the PACE challenge, see their website:



IPEC 2023 will take place September 6-8 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands
(ALGO runs September 4-8).


June 27th (23:59 AoE): Abstract submission (paper registration)

June 30th (23:59 AoE): Submission deadline

Notification: August 1st


As previous recent years, IPEC is using a lightweight double-blind
model for the reviewing process. Submissions should not reveal the
identity of the authors in any way (including via accidental phrases
such as "we build on our previous results in..."). On the other hand,
nothing should be done in the name of anonymity that weakens the
submission (e.g., do not omit references to hide your identities), and
authors are encouraged to make their papers available in regular,
de-anonymized form on arXiv, ECCC or similar sites as they normally
