Authors are requested to identify exactly one author as the corresponding author when registering the submission.


How to Participate

Reviewing will be double-blind. This means that you must take measures to prevent that your identity is not easily revealed from the submission (e.g. no author names, self-citations done in a neutral way). Authors are encouraged to submit work that has been presented in public or has appeared on ArXiV, provided the submission itself is anonymized. Authors will be asked to declare conflicts of interest with PC members, and PC members who know the identity of the authors of a paper are supposed to declare a conflict of interest.

Submissions co-authored by PC members are allowed, but will be held to a higher standard than other submissions.

Submissions must be registered by August 11, 2017. EasyChair meta-data (title, list of authors and abstract) is required by this date in order for a full paper to be considered. Only chairs will know the identity of authors.

Full paper submissions are due by August 18, 2017. Submissions received after this time will not be considered. All submissions must be in PDF format and submitted electronically. Submitting authors are encouraged to post their submission on their website.

Papers should be submitted in the form of an extended abstract, which begins with the title of the paper followed by a clear statement of the problem considered, a succinct summary of the results obtained, a brief discussion of the significance and novelty of the research, and a clear comparison with related work.

Submissions should be typeset in single column format, using 11-point or larger font, with reasonable margins and line spacing. Excluding the title page and bibliography, the extended abstract must not exceed ten pages. Supplementary material may be included in the appendix and will be read at the discretion of the reviewers.

Authors of accepted papers are strongly encouraged to submit publicly available code and data to the ACM Journal of Experimental Algorithmics Research Code Repository via

Acceptance Notification

Acceptance and rejection notices will be sent to authors via e-mail in early October 2017. A list of accepted papers will be posted online at this time.


Speaker Cancellation

The Conference Organizing Committee expects every speaker in a scheduled presentation to register and attend the conference.

If it becomes necessary for a speaker to cancel a presentation, he or she should try to find an alternate presenter immediately, preferably a co-author. Contact SIAM at [email protected] immediately with any change to a scheduled presentation.

A “no-show” or cancelled presentation can cause serious inconvenience to the attendees and conference organizers. The committee thanks all speakers in advance for their compliance to this request.
