FAW-AAIM'2013 Call for Papers


The 2013 Joint FAW-AAIM Conference

June 26-28, 2013

Dalian Maritime University , Dalian , China



In cooperation with SIAM and NSFC, the Seventh International Frontiers of Algorithmics Workshop (FAW 2013) and The Ninth International Conference on Algorithmic Aspects of Information and Management (AAIM 2013) will be jointly held on June 26-28, 2013 at Dalian Maritime University , Dalian , China .


The Joint Conference will provide a focused forum on current trends of research on algorithms, discrete structures, operation research, combinatorial optimization and their applications, and will bring together international experts at the research frontiers in these areas to exchange ideas and to present significant new results.


The mission of the Joint Conference is to stimulate the various fields for which algorithmics can become a crucial enabler, and to strengthen the ties between the Eastern and Western research communities of algorithmics and applications. There will be a joint proceeding for the conference, and the accepted papers will be put in the FAW or AAIM track according to their contents (with the common understanding that FAW focuses on algorithmics while AAIM focuses on combinatorial optimization, operation research and management sciences).


Interesting new results in all areas of algorithmics, operation research and combinatorial optimization and their applications are welcome. In addition to theoretical work, we are also interested in results that report on experimental and applied research of general algorithmic interest. Special considerations will be given to algorithmic research that is motivated by real-world applications. Experimental and applied papers are expected to show convincingly the usefulness and efficiency of the target algorithms in practical settings.


Typical, but not exclusive, topics of interest include:


Algorithms and data structures;

Algorithmic game theory and incentive analysis;

Approximation algorithms and online algorithms;

Automata, languages, logic, and computability;

Bioinformatics, computational biology and medicine, and biomedical applications;

Biomedical imaging algorithms;

Combinatorial optimization;

Combinatorics and discrete structures related to algorithms and complexity;

Communication networks and optimization;

Complexity theory;

Computational algebra, geometry, number theory, and statistics;

Computational learning theory, knowledge discovery, and data mining;

Cryptography, reliability, and security;

Database theory, large databases, and natural language processing;

Experimental algorithmic methodologies;

Geometric information processing and communication;

Graph algorithms and theory;

Graph drawing and information visualization;

Internet algorithms and protocols;

Large graph algorithms and social network analysis;

Optimization algorithms in economic and operations research;

Parallel and distributed computing and multicore algorithms;

Parameterized algorithms, heuristics, and analysis;

Pattern recognition algorithms;

Trustworthy algorithms and trustworthy software.





The submission deadline is March 3, 2013 (anywhere on Earth, Extended). FAW-AAIM'2013 will only accept electronic (PS or PDF) submissions. For on-line submission, please go to http://www.dlmu.edu.cn/faw-aaim2013/submissions.html  for detailed instructions on submissions.

The submission webpage for FAW-AAIM'2013 is:

E-mails will be sent to the authors to confirm the receipt of their submissions within 24 hours. For any problem or question on submissions, please send e-mails to faw-aaim2013@dlmu.edu.cn.


Only previously unpublished new results will be considered for publication. Papers that have already been published at another journal or conference with proceedings, or simultaneously submitted or accepted to another conference with proceedings will not be considered.


A submission should start with the title of the paper, each author's name, affiliation, and e-mail address, and a one-paragraph summary of the results. This should be followed by a scholarly exposition of the ideas, techniques, and a full description of the results achieved. A clear indication of the motivation and comparison with prior or related work should be presented. The paper should not exceed 10 pages, excluding bibliography and appendices, formatted for letter-size paper using 11 point or larger font, with at least one inch margins around.


Submissions that deviate significantly from these guidelines or are unprintable risk rejection without consideration of their merit.


The proceedings of the Joint Conference will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series, and will be available for distribution at the conference.



Invited Speakers:

Jin Akiyama ( Tokyo University of Science , Japan )

The contents will be available soon...

Daniel Marx ( Computer and Automation Reserch Institute , Hungarian Academy of Sciences )

The contents will be available soon...


Special Issues:


Selected high quality papers will be invited to a special issue in the journal of Theoretical Computer Science and in the Journal of Combinatorial Optimization, respectively. The invited papers will go through the normal reviewing process.





The Best Paper and the Best Student Paper will be selected for award. A paper is eligible for the Best Student Paper Award only if all authors are full-time students at the time of submission. To indicate the eligibility of a submission for the Best Student Paper Award, please add the phrase "Eligible for Best Student Paper Award" in a separate line at the end of the "Abstract" field in the web form on the submission server as well as in the submitted paper. The Committee reserves the right to decide whether to make an award or not.
