The Algorithm Engineering and Experiments (ALENEX13) and Analytic Algorithmics and Combinatorics (ANALCO13) meetings will take place at the same location, and will hold sessions during the SODA conference.

SODA is jointly sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Algorithms and Computation Theory and the SIAM Activity Group on Discrete Mathematics.


Math of Planet Earth 2013

2013 is designated as the year of Math of Planet Earth. SIAM supports MPE2013.

A Facebook link to RSVP to the conference, connect with other attendees and find roommates will be posted here in October 2012.

If you are tweeting about the conference, please use the designated hashtag to enable other attendees to keep up with the Twitter conversation and to allow better archiving of our conference discussions.  The hashtag for this meeting is #SIAMDA13.

This symposium focuses on research topics related to efficient algorithms and data structures for discrete problems. In addition to the design of such methods and structures, the scope also includes their use, performance analysis, and the mathematical problems related to their development or limitations. Performance analyses may be analytical or experimental and may address worst-case or expected-case performance. Studies can be theoretical or based on data sets that have arisen in practice and may address methodological issues involved in performance analysis.
