IWOCA 2016 in Helsinki - Second Call for Papers

27th International Workshop on Combinatorial Algorithms (IWOCA 2016)
Helsinki, Finland, 17-19 August 2016
http://iwoca2016.cs.helsinki.fi

IWOCA 2016 continues the long and well-established tradition of encouraging high-quality research in theoretical computer science and providing an opportunity to bring together specialists and young researchers working in the area. The scientific program will include three invited lectures covering the areas of main interest, accepted contributed talks, posters, and an open problem session.

This year we will also have a best student paper award, sponsored by the EATCS.

INVITED SPEAKERS:
Leslie Anne Goldberg (Oxford University)
Giuseppe F. Italiano (University of Rome "Tor Vergata")
Petteri Kaski (Aalto University)

SCOPE:
We solicit high-quality papers in the broad area of combinatorial algorithms. Topics include (but are not restricted to): Algorithms and Data Structures (including sequential, parallel, distributed, approximation, probabilistic, randomised, and on-line algorithms); Algorithms on Graphs and Strings; Applications (bioinformatics, music analysis, networking, and others); Combinatorics on Words; Combinatorial Enumeration; Combinatorial Optimization; Complexity Theory; Computational Biology; Compression and Information Retrieval; Cryptography and Information Security; Decompositions and Combinatorial Designs; Discrete and Computational Geometry; Graph Drawing and Labelling; Graph Theory

PROCEEDINGS AND SPECIAL ISSUE:
The conference proceedings with invited papers and accepted contributed papers will be published as a volume of the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. There will be a special issue of the journal Theory of Computing Systems with papers from the conference.

SUBMISSIONS:
Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract of no more than 12 pages in LNCS style, including references. A clearly marked Appendix can be included, which will be read at the referees' discretion. All submissions have to be made via the EasyChair page for the conference. No simultaneous submission to other conferences with published proceedings is allowed, and submitted papers should not be under review by a journal during the whole refereeing process. At least one author of each accepted paper will be expected to attend the conference and present the paper.

VENUE:
The conference will take place in the center of Helsinki, which is perennially listed amongst the world's most liveable cities. Helsinki is easily reachable by plane from anywhere in Europe.
