Algorithm Engineering and Experiments (ALENEX18), Analytic Algorithmics and Combinatorics (ANALCO18), and the Simplicity in Algorithms Workshop will take place at the same location, and will hold sessions during the SODA conference.

Statement on Inclusiveness

As a professional society, SIAM is committed to providing an inclusive climate that encourages the open expression and exchange of ideas, that is free from all forms of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation, and that is welcoming and comfortable to all members and to those who participate in its activities. In pursuit of that commitment, SIAM is dedicated to the philosophy of equality of opportunity and treatment for all participants regardless of gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion or religious belief, age, marital status, disabilities, veteran status, field of expertise, or any other reason not related to scientific merit. This philosophy extends from SIAM conferences, to its publications, and to its governing structures and bodies. We expect all members of SIAM and participants in SIAM activities to work towards this commitment.

The aim of ALENEX is to provide a forum for the presentation of original research in the design, implementation, and experimental evaluation of algorithms and data structures. Typical submissions will include an extensive experimental analysis of nontrivial algorithmic results, ideally bridging the gap between theory and practice. We also invite submissions that address methodological issues and standards in the experimental evaluation of algorithms and data structures. Some possible areas of applied algorithmic research include but are not limited to databases; networks, including web applications; operations research; and computational problems in the natural sciences or engineering. Submissions are encouraged that address algorithms and data structures for advanced models of computing including memory hierarchies and parallel computing, ranging from instruction parallelism over multicore computing to exascale and cloud computing.

ALENEX is co-located with the ACM-SIAM Symposium on Discrete Algorithms (SODA18), and Analytic Algorithmics and Combinatorics (ANALCO18). Since researchers in all fields are approaching the problem of learning detailed information about the performance of particular algorithms, we expect that interesting synergies will develop.

Proceedings of ALENEX and ANALCO will be published openly and electronically in January 2018. A special section of the ACM Journal of Experimental Algorithmics will be dedicated to selected papers from ALENEX18.

ALENEX is supported by SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics).
