Call for papers
The series of IWOCA conferences grew out of over 20 years history of the International (since 2007) respectively Australasian (until 2006) Workshops on Combinatorial Algorithms. Previous IWOCA and AWOCA meetings have been held in Australia, Canada, Czech Republic, France, Indonesia, India, Italy, Japan, South Korea, UK, and the US.
Topics of Interest
We solicit high-quality papers in the broad area of combinatorial algorithms. The topics include (but are not restricted to):
- Algorithms and Data Structures (including sequential, parallel, distributed, approximation, probabilistic, randomised, and on-line algorithms)
- Algorithms on Strings and Graphs
- Applications (Bioinformatics, 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
Paper Abstract due: 25 April (Monday), Anywhere on Earth Full Paper due: 2 May (Monday), Anywhere on Earth (only for papers whose abstract was submitted earlier) Notification of authors: 9 June Camera-ready copies due: 19 June Early registration deadline: 1 July Late registration deadline: 15 August (afterward, only on-site registration) String Masters: 16 August Conference dates: 17-19 August Invitations to special issue: 31 August
Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract not exceeding 12 single-spaced pages, including references, figures, title, authors, affiliations, e-mail addresses, and a short (one paragraph) abstract. The authors are strongly advised to use the LaTeX style file supplied by Springer Verlag for Lecture Notes in Computer Science here. Final proceedings papers must be camera-ready in this format. A clearly marked Appendix, which will not count toward the 12 page submission limit, can be included and will be read at the referees’ discretion. All submissions have to be made via the EasyChair submission page for the conference at
Papers submitted for review should represent original, previously unpublished work and surveys of important results. At the time the extended abstract is submitted to IWOCA, and for the entire review period, the paper (or essentially the same paper) should not be under review by any other conference with published proceedings or by a scientific journal. At least one author of each accepted paper will be expected to attend the conference and present the paper.
Best Student Paper
A prize will be awarded to the author(s) of the best student-authored paper. A paper is eligible if all of its authors are full-time students at the time of submission. Authors who wish their paper to be considered for the student prize should inform the chairs of their eligibility via email after submission and before notification.
