The Scandinavian Symposium and Workshops on Algorithm Theory (SWAT), which alternates with the Algorithms and Data Structures Symposium (WADS), is a forum for researchers in the area of design and analysis of algorithms and data structures.

We invite submissions of papers presenting original research on algorithms and data structures. Though we welcome experiments, the theoretical results in the articles will be the main measure for evaluating their merits.

Algorithmic approaches of interest include, but are not limited to: approximation algorithms, parametrized algorithms, distributed algorithms, parallel algorithms, external-memory algorithms, data structures, exponential time algorithms, online algorithms, randomized algorithms, streaming algorithms, sub-linear algorithms. The algorithmic problems considered may be motivated by applications, e.g. in optimization, geometry and topology, graph analysis, bioinformatics, visualization, string processing, information retrieval, machine learning, algorithmic game theory, or mechanism design.

Contributors must submit their papers using the Easychair system Submissions should be in LIPIcs format (without font size, margin, or line spacing changes), and not exceed 12 pages including front page and references. See www.dagstuhl.de/publikationen/lipics/anleitung-fuer-autoren for instructions. Additionally, if full details of proofs do not fit into the page limit, a clearly marked appendix containing the remaining details must be included; this appendix will not be regarded as part of the submission and will be considered only at the discretion of the program committee. Submissions deviating substantially from this format risk rejection without consideration of their merits.

Papers submitted for review should represent original, previously unpublished work. At the time the paper is submitted to the symposium, and for the entire review period, the paper (or essentially the same paper) must not be under review by any other conference with published proceedings or by a scientific journal. However, we encourage authors to make a preprint of their paper available at a public repository such as arXiv. At least one author of every accepted paper is expected to register and present the paper at the symposium. Symposium proceedings will be published in the “Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics” (LIPIcs) series. A prize will be awarded to the author(s) of the best student-authored paper. A paper is eligible if all of its authors are full-time students at the time of submission. This must be indicated in the paper in the submission process.
