SIAM Annual ACM-SIAM Symposium on Discrete Algorithms, January 6-8, 2002, Radisson Miyako Hotel, San Francisco, CA

Jointly sponsored by ACM Special Interest Group on Algorithms and Computation Theory
and SIAM Activity Group on Discrete Mathematics

Immediately preceding the conference at the same location...
The 4th Workshop on Algorithm Engineering and Experiments (ALENEX 02)
January 4-5, 2002

About the Symposium

This symposium concerns research on the use, design, and analysis of efficient algorithms and data structures, and on the mathematical problems related to the development and analysis of discrete algorithms. Performance analysis may be analytical or experimental, and may address worst-case or average-case performance. These studies can be theoretical or based on real data sets, and may address methodological issues involved in performance analysis.

Application areas include, but are not limited to:
