SEA 2015 : 14th International Symposium on Experimental Algorithms
Call For Papers
SEA is an international forum for researchers in the area of design, analysis, and experimental evaluation and engineering of algorithms, as well as in various aspects of computational optimization and its applications. The preceding symposia were held in Riga, Monte Verita, Rio de Janeiro, Santorini, Menorca Island, Rome, Cape Cod, Dortmund, Ischia Island, Crete, Bordeaux, Rome and Copenhagen.
SEA 2015 will take place at Sorbonne Universités - Université Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC) in Paris, France.
The main theme of the symposium is the role of experimentation and of algorithm engineering techniques in the design and evaluation of algorithms and data structures. Submissions should present significant contributions supported by experimental evaluation, methodological issues in the design and interpretation of experiments, the use of (meta-)heuristics, or application-driven case studies that deepen the understanding of a problem's complexity.
Contributions solicited cover a variety of topics including but not limited to:
Algorithmic Mechanism Design
Analysis of Algorithms
Algorithms for Memory Hierarchies
Branch and Bound Algorithms
Combinatorial and Irregular Problems
Combinatorial Structures and Graphs
Computational Learning Theory
Cryptography and Security
Distributed and Parallel Algorithms
Evaluation of Algorithms for Realistic Environments
Experimental Techniques and Statistics
Heuristics for Combinatorial Optimization
Implementation, Testing, Evaluation and Fine-tuning
Logistics and Operations Management
Machine Learning and Data Mining
Multiple Criteria Decision Making
Novel Applications of Algorithms in Other Disciplines
Parallel Algorithms and Computing
Railway Optimization using Algorithmic Methods
Software Repositories and Platforms for using Algorithms
Telecommunications and Networking
World Wide Web Algorithms
The conference proceedings have been published by Springer Verlag in the LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) series.
