7th International Workshop on Experimental Algorithms

WEA 2008: Workshop on Experimental Algorithms


Here is a printer-friendly call for participation.

The WEA Workshops are intended to be an international forum for researchers in the area of experimental evaluation and engineering of algorithms, as well as in aspects of computational optimization and its applications. The focus of the workshop is on using experimental methods to support algorithm design and analysis.

All submissions will be refereed. The proceedings of WEA 2008 will be published by Springer Verlag in a volume of Lecture Notes in Computer Science. A subset of papers will be invited to be expanded and published in a Special Section of the ACM Journal of Experimental Algorithms
