ESA 2018: Call for papers

26th Annual European Symposium on Algorithms

The symposium seeks original algorithmic contributions for problems with relevant theoretical and/or practical applications: papers with a strong emphasis on the theoretical analysis of algorithms should be submitted to Track A, while papers reporting on the results of extensive experimental evaluations and/or providing original contributions to the engineering of algorithms for practical applications should be submitted to Track B.

For Track B, ESA 2018 will conduct an experiment with two independent PCs, both of which will follow the usual procedure for reviewing the submissions. More details about the experiment are provided on this webpage.

There will be a Best Student Paper Award as well as a Best Paper Award, both sponsored by EATCS. In order for a paper to be considered for the Best Student Paper Award, all of its authors are required to be students.


Papers presenting original research in all areas of algorithmic research are sought, including but not limited to:
