GRAPHITE 2013 : Second Workshop on GRAPH Inspection and Traversal Engineering: CfP - post-proceedings EPTCS
Call For Papers
Second Workshop on GRAPH Inspection and Traversal Engineering
(affiliated with ETAPS 2013)
The topic of the GRAPHITE workshop is graph analysis in all its forms in computer science. Graphs are used to represent data in many application areas, and they are subjected to various computational algorithms in order to acquire the desired information. These graph algorithms tend to have common characteristics, such as duplicate detection to guarantee their termination, independent of their application domain. Over the past few years, it has been shown that the scalability of such algorithms can be dramatically improved by using, e.g., external memory, by exploiting parallel architectures, such as clusters, multi-core CPUs, and graphics processing units, and by using heuristics to guide the search. Novel techniques to further scale graph search algorithms, and new applications of graph search are within the scope of this workshop. Another topic of interest of the event is more related to the structural properties of graphs: which kind of graph characteristics are relevant for a particular application area, and how can these be measured? Finally, any novel way of using graphs for a particular application area is on topic. The goal of this event is to gather scientists from different communities, such as model checking, artificial intelligence planning, game playing, and algorithm engineering, who do research on graph search algorithms, such that awareness of each others' work is increased.
The workshop has been held as a satellite event of ETAPS 2013, the 16th edition of The European Joint Conferences on Theory and Practice of Software (ETAPS). ETAPS is a primary European forum for academic and industrial researchers working on topics relating to Software Science.
The current call is for submissions for the post-proceedings, which will contain the papers presented at the workshop in addition to the accepted submissions of the current call, and will be published in the second half of 2013. As such, authors of accepted papers will not be invited to present their work, but their papers will be included in the proceedings.
Workshop Specific Topics
We encourage submission of works which include but are not limited to the following topics:
* Algorithms for the verification of hardware and software based on graph exploration (e.g. the computation of an explicit state space based on an implicit description)
* Application of graph based techniques originating in one application domain, applied on a problem in another domain (e.g. verification algorithms on artificial intelligence problems)
* Techniques to deal with potentially infinite graphs and infinite families of graphs
* Innovative or otherwise particularly significant case studies of applications of graph based methods
* Theoretical results on the limits and possibilities of graph based methods
* Parallel algorithms for graph exploration for distributed and shared memory systems (e.g. clusters, multi-core CPUs, GPGPUs)
* Graph algorithms in artificial intelligence; planning; game playing; social network analysis; biological network analysis, and similar
* Graph minimisation and abstraction techniques as a preprocessing step for analysis (e.g. bisimulation reduction, transitive reduction)
* Computation on graphs through graph transformation techniques
* I/O Efficient graph algorithms using external memory
Papers on applications and papers bridging multiple application domains are strongly encouraged. In addition, this call also encourages the submission of short papers, either presenting a new tool or new scientific results that can be described succinctly.
The submitted papers should contain original work which has not been submitted or accepted for publication elsewhere. Submissions should adhere to the EPTCS format. All accepted papers will be included in
the workshop proceedings.
We solicit two kinds of papers:
*Tool Papers or Short Technical Papers no longer than 7 pages. Tool papers should describe the contribution of a new tool, how it works, and how it is implemented. Experimental results are encouraged. Short technical papers are intended to succinctly present new scientific results related to the GRAPHITE topics.
*Full Technical Papers no longer than 15 pages.
Submission and Publication
Submission can be done via the Easy Chair web-based conference management system. (Follow the link from the workshop web page.) All papers will be peer reviewed.
The proceedings will appear in the Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS) as post-proceedings.
