SEA 2016 : 15th International Symposium on Experimental Algorithms
Conference Series : Software Engineering and Applications
Call For Papers
SEA (Symposium on Experimental Algorithms), previously known as WEA (Workshop on Experimental Algorithms), 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 Verità, Rio de Janeiro, Santorini, Menorca Island, Rome, Cape Cod, Dortmund, Ischia Island, Crete, Bordeaux, Rome, Copenhagen and Paris. SEA aims to attract papers from both the CS and the OR/Mathematical Programming communities.
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 the complexity
of a problem.

Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract or a full paper of at most 12 pages, not including references, in the LNCS format (LaTeX, as pdf; final version with source); instructions are here:
Proofs and other material omitted due to space constraints are to be put into a clearly marked appendix to be read at discretion of the referees. Papers must present original (and not previously published) research. Simultaneous submission to journals or to other conferences with published proceedings is not allowed. The proceedings of the symposium will be published in Springer's LNCS series.
Submissions should be uploaded to the EasyChair Conference system: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sea2016
