Call for papers

WAOA 2016 call for papers

Algorithms have become a fundamental tool in several fields outside of Computer Science, and in several applications algorithms have to cope with computationally hard problems and problems in which the input is gradually disclosed over time. The workshop focuses on the design and analysis of approximation and online algorithms. WAOA 2016 will be part of ALGO 2016, which also hosts ESA, ALGOSENSORS, ALGOCLOUD, ATMOS, IPEC, MASSIVE and WABI. ALGO 2016 will take place 22-26 August in Aarhus, Denmark. 


Papers are solicited in all research areas related to approximation and online algorithms, including, but not limited to:

  • algorithmic game theory
  • algorithmic trading
  • coloring and partitioning
  • competitive analysis
  • computational advertising
  • computational finance
  • cuts and connectivity
  • geometric problems
  • graph algorithms
  • inapproximabilty results
  • mechanism design
  • network design
  • packing and covering
  • paradigms for the design and analysis of approximation and online algorithms
  • parameterized complexity
  • real-world applications 
  • scheduling problems


Proceedings will be published after the workshop takes place in the Springer series Lecture Notes in Computer Science. Instructions for authors can be found at Springer web site.

Submission guidelines

Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract or full paper of at most 12 pages in Springer's LNCS style (please add page numbers) describing original unpublished research. Simultaneous submission to other conferences with published proceedings is not permitted. The title page of the submission should include the authors' full names, addresses, e-mail addresses, and an abstract summarizing the results in roughly 100-200 words; the remainder of the submission should contain a description of the main results and an explanation of their importance. The submission must include a full proof of the results, part of which can be placed in the appendix, whose length is not constrained. Papers should be submitted electronically via the EasyChair submission system at:


The WAOA proceedings will be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series by Springer-Verlag. Each accepted paper will be allotted 12 pages in the proceedings.

By submitting a paper the authors acknowledge that in case of acceptance at least one of the authors must register at ALGO 2016 or WAOA 2016, attend the conference, and present the paper.
