Algorithm Engineering and Experiments (ALENEX19)
January 7-8, 2019
Westin San Diego, San Diego, California, USA

The 21st Meeting on Algorithm Engineering and Experiments (ALENEX) will
take place in San Diego, CA on January 7-8, 2019. The aim of ALENEX is
to provide a forum for the presentation of original research in the
design, implementation, and experimental evaluation of algorithms and
data structures. Typical submissions will include an extensive
experimental analysis of nontrivial algorithmic results, ideally
bridging the gap between theory and practice. We also invite submissions
that address methodological issues and standards in the experimental
evaluation of algorithms and data structures.

Relevant areas of applied algorithmic research include but are not
limited to: databases; geometry; graphs and networks, including web
applications; operations research; combinatorial aspects of scientific
computing; and computational problems in the natural sciences or

Also encouraged are submissions that address algorithms and data
structures for advanced models of computing, including memory
hierarchies and parallel computing, ranging from instruction parallelism
over multicore computing to high-performance and cloud computing.

ALENEX is co-located with the ACM-SIAM Symposium on Discrete Algorithms
(SODA19), Analytic Algorithmics and Combinatorics (ANALCO19) and
Symposium on Simplicity in Algorithms. Since researchers in all fields
are approaching the problem of learning detailed information about the
performance of particular algorithms, we expect that interesting
synergies will develop.

Proceedings of ALENEX and ANALCO will be published openly and
electronically in January 2019 as SIAM ePubs. A special section of the
ACM Journal of Experimental Algorithmics will be dedicated to selected
papers from ALENEX19.

ALENEX is supported by SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied

An ALENEX submission should be original work that has not been published
(or is under review) in other peer-reviewed conferences or journals.
Reviewing will be double-blind. Authors must take reasonable measures to
prevent their identities from being easily deduced from the submission
(e.g., no author names, no obvious self-citations). Upon registering a
submission, the authors will declare conflicts of interest with PC
members. Submissions co-authored by PC members are allowed, but will be
held to a higher standard than other submissions.

Submissions should be in pdf, formatted using the LaTeX2e SIAM SODA
macro titled “soda2e_022817.zip (LaTeX2e)” (available at
http://www.siam.org/proceedings/macros.php). In particular, papers
should begin with 1 page containing the title and abstract, followed by
at most 10 pages of the body of the paper, followed by references and an
optional appendix. Content in the appendix will be read at the
discretion of the reviewers.
