Call For Papers

Call for Papers - WALCOM 2018

The 12th International Conference and Workshop on Algorithms and Computation (WALCOM) is intended to provide an international forum for researchers working in the areas of algorithms and computation. WALCOM 2018 will be held during March 03- 05, 2018 at Dhaka, Bangladesh. It is being organized in cooperation with IEICE Technical Committee on Theoretical Foundations of Computing (COMP), the Special Interest Group for ALgorithms (SIGAL) of the Information Processing Society of Japan (IPSJ) and the EATCS Japan Chapter.

The range of topics within the scope of WALCOM includes (but is not limited to):

Approximation Algorithms
Algorithmic Graph Theory and Combinatorics
Combinatorial Algorithms
Combinatorial Optimization
Computational Biology
Computational Complexity
Computational Geometry
Discrete Geometry
Data Structures
Experimental Algorithm Methodologies
Graph Algorithms
Graph Drawing
Parallel and Distributed Algorithms
Parameterized Algorithms
Parameterized Complexity
Network Optimization
Online Algorithms
Randomized Algorithms
String Algorithms

Authors are invited to submit papers (extended abstracts) describing original research of theoretical or practical significance to algorithms and computation. Papers should not exceed 12 pages in LNCS style. Papers significantly shorter than 12 pages are also welcome. If the authors feel that more details are essential to substantiate the main claim of the paper, they may include a clearly marked appendix that will be read at the discretion of the Program Committee. Only electronic submissions via Easychair will be allowed (Link: Submitted papers must describe work not previously published. They must not be submitted simultaneously to another conference with refereed proceedings or to a journal.

Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings. Following the tradition of the previous editions of WALCOM it is expected that the proceedings will be included in the Springer-Verlag series Lecture Notes in Computer Science.

WALCOM 2018 will be held at the Department of CSE, BUET, ECE Building, West Palasi, Dhaka.

Paper Submission: 22 September (Friday) 2017 (Anywhere on Earth)
Notification: 17 November (Friday) 2017
Camera Ready Version: 01 December (Friday) 2017
