ESA 2018: Submission guidelines

26th Annual European Symposium on Algorithms

Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract or full paper of at most 12 pages excluding references and an optional appendix. The ESA 2018 proceedings will be published in the Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics (LIPIcs) series, based at Schloss Dagstuhl. Submissions must be formatted in LaTeX, using the LIPIcs style file. Do not change the margin size or the font, do not make a separate title page, etc.: use the LIPIcs style file as given.

Proofs omitted due to space constraints must be placed in an appendix to be read by the program committee members at their discretion. These guidelines are strict: papers failing to adhere to the guidelines (by not providing the omitted proofs in an appendix, being more than 12 pages, or not being in LIPIcs format) will be rejected without consideration of their merits. Papers should be submitted electronically via the EasyChair submission system:

Results previously published in another conference proceedings or journal (or scheduled for publication prior to ESA) will not be accepted at ESA.

Simultaneous submission to other conferences with published proceedings, or to both tracks of ESA 2018, is not permitted. 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. By submitting a paper the authors acknowledge that in case of acceptance at least one of the authors must register at ALGO 2018 or ESA 2018, attend the conference, and present the paper.
