ESA 2015 First Call for Papers

23rd European Symposium on Algorithms – ESA 2015
September 14-16, 2015, Patras, Greece

The European Symposium on Algorithms (ESA) is one of the premier conferences on algorithms. The symposium covers research in all aspects of the design, analysis, engineering, and application of algorithms and data structures.

ESA 2015 has two tracks: the Design and Analysis Track (Track A) and the Engineering and Applications Track (Track B).

ESA 2015 is organized in collaboration with the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS) and is a part of ALGO 2015 (


The symposium seeks original algorithmic contributions for problems with relevant theoretical and/or practical applications: papers with a strong emphasis on the theoretical analysis of algorithms should be submitted to Track A, while papers reporting on the results of extensive experimental evaluations and/or providing original contributions to the engineering of algorithms for practical applications should be submitted to Track B.

There will be a Best Student Paper Award, as well as a Best Paper Award.


Papers presenting original research in all areas of algorithmic research are sought, including but not limited to:

Algorithm engineering
Algorithmic aspects of networks
Algorithmic game theory
Approximation algorithms
Computational biology
Computational finance
Computational geometry
Combinatorial optimization
Data compression
Data structures
Databases and information retrieval
Distributed and parallel computing
Graph algorithms
Hierarchical memories
Heuristics and meta-heuristics
Mathematical programming
Mobile computing
On-line algorithms
Parameterized algorithms
Pattern matching
Quantum computing
Randomized algorithms
Scheduling and resource allocation problems
Streaming algorithms


Submission: April 22, 23:59 UTC/GMT
