Call for Papers

17th International Symposium on Experimental Algorithms (SEA 2018)
June 27-29, 2018, L'Aquila, Italy

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 
combinatorial 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, Paris, St. Petersburg, and London.

SEA aims to attract papers from both the Computer Science and the 
Operations Research/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.


Contributions solicited cover a variety of topics including but not 
limited to:

     Algorithm Engineering
     Algorithmic Libraries
     Algorithmic Mechanism Design
     Analysis of Algorithms
     Algorithms for Memory Hierarchies
     Algorithms for the World-Wide-Web
     Approximation Techniques

     Experimental Techniques and Statistics
     Graph Drawing
     Heuristics for Combinatorial Optimization
     Implementation, Testing, Evaluation and Fine-tuning
     Information Retrieval
     Integer Programming
     Logistics and Operations Management
     Machine Learning and Data Mining
     Mathematical Programming
     Metaheuristic Methodologies
     Multiple Criteria Decision Making
     Network Analysis
     Novel Applications of Algorithms in Other Disciplines

The authors should submit an extended abstract not exceeding 12 pages, 
including figures, title, authors, affiliations, e-mail addresses, and a 
short abstract. References will not be counted in the page limit. At 
least 10-point font should be used. Authors are strongly advised to use 
the LaTeX style file supplied for the LIPIcs style here. Final 
proceedings papers must be camera-ready in this format. A clearly marked 
Appendix, which will not count toward the 12 page submission limit, can 
be included and will be read at the referees’ discretion. All 
submissions have to be made via the EasyChair submission page for the 
conference at


Authors are encouraged to include a link to the source code and/or 
datasets to increase confidence in the reproducibility of their 
experiments; the code may be read and/or executed at the referees' 

Papers submitted for review should represent original, previously 
unpublished work or surveys of important results. At the time the 
extended abstract is submitted to SEA, and for the entire review period, 
the paper (or essentially the same paper) should not be under review by 
any other conference with published proceedings or by a scientific 
journal. At least one author of each accepted paper will be expected to 
attend the conference and present the paper.
