About the Conference
The Third Workshop on Analytic Algorithmics and Combinatorics (ANALCO06), will be held in Miami, Florida, on January 21, 2006, at the Radisson Hotel Miami Downtown.
The aim of the ANALCO workshop is to provide a forum for the presentation of original research in the analysis of algorithms and associated combinatorial structures. We invite both papers that study properties of fundamental combinatorial structures that arise in practical computational applications (such as permutations, trees, strings, tries, and graphs) and papers that address the precise analysis of algorithms for processing such structures. This includes average-case analysis; analysis of moments, extrema, and distributions; and probabilistic analysis of randomized algorithms. Submissions that present significant new information about classic algorithms are welcome, as are analyses of new algorithms that present unique analytic challenges. We also invite submissions that address tools and techniques for the analysis of algorithms and combinatorial structures, both mathematical and computational. The scientific program will include invited talks, contributed research papers, and ample time for discussion and debate of topics in this area.
This workshop precedes the ACM-SIAM Symposium on Discrete Algorithms (SODA06), being held January 22-24, 2006.
The workshop will take place on the same day as the Eighth Annual Workshop on Algorithm Engineering and Experimentation (ALENEX06). Since researchers in both fields are approaching the problem of learning detailed information about the performance of particular algorithms, we expect that interesting synergies will develop. The proceedings of ALENEX and ANALCO will be published as a single volume. Attendees will be permitted to attend sessions in either workshop.
A paper that has been reviewed and accepted for presentation at SODA is not eligible for submission to ANALCO. We recognize, however, that some research projects spawn multiple papers that elaborate on different aspects of the work, and we are willing to respond to inquiries about SODA, ALENEX, and ANALCO papers that may overlap. Inquiries regarding ANALCO may be sent to workshop organizer Robert Sedgewick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The ANALCO workshop is supported by SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics).
