Conference Themes

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 datasets, and may address methodological issues involved in performance analysis. Application areas include, but are not limited to:

  • Discrete Mathematics and Combinatorics

  • Combinatorial Structures
  • Communication Networks
  • Computational Biology
  • Computational Physics
  • Computational Finance
  • Computational Geometry
  • Computational Topology
  • Computer Graphics and Computer Vision
  • Computer Systems
  • Cryptography and Security
  • Databases and Information Retrieval
  • Discrete Optimization
  • Discrete Probability
  • Distributed Algorithms
  • Experimental Algorithmics

  • Graph Drawing
  • Graphs and Networks
  • Machine Learning
  • Mathematical Programming
  • Molecular Computing
  • Number Theory and Algebra
  • On-line Problems
  • Pattern Matching and Data Compression
  • Quantum Computing
  • Random Structures
  • Robotics
  • Statistical Inference
  • Symbolic Computation
