This Call for Papers is also available as a flyer.


The WEA Workshops are intended to be an international forum for researchers in the area of design, analysis, and experimental evaluation and engineering of algorithms, as well as in various aspects of computational optimization and its applications. The preceding Workshops in this series were held in Riga (2001), Monte Verita (2003, www.idsia.ch/wea2003), Rio de Janeiro (2004, wea2004.inf.puc-rio.br) and Santorini (2005, ru1.cti.gr/wea05/).


Contributions solicited cover a variety of topics including but not limited to:

  • Algorithm Engineering
  • Algorithmic Game Theory
  • Algorithms for Transportation and Communication Networks
  • Analysis of Algorithms
  • Approximation Techniques
  • Combinatorial and Irregular Problems
  • Combinatorial Pattern Matching
  • Combinatorial Structures and Graphs
  • Complex Networks
  • Computational Learning Theory
  • Computational Optimization
  • Cryptography and Security
  • Data Structures
  • Distributed Algorithms
  • Evaluation of Algorithms for Realistic Environments
  • Graph Drawing
  • Heuristics and Metaheuristics Methodologies
  • Implementation, Testing, Evaluation and Fine-tuning of Algorithms
  • Information Retrieval
  • Integer Programming
  • Logistics and Operations Management
  • Machine Learning and Data Mining
  • Mathematical Programming
  • Network Analysis
  • Novel Applications of Algorithms in Other Disciplines
  • On-line Problems
  • Parallel Algorithms and Computing
  • Randomized Techniques
  • Robotics
  • Semidefinite Programming
  • Simulation
  • Software Repositories and Platforms for using Algorithms
  • Telecommunications and Networking
  • World Wide Web Algorithms


Autors are invited to submit a draft of a full paper describing original, unpublished research with at most 12 pages (in LNCS style or similar -- e.g. LaTeX article style 11pt a4paper). The title page must contain a classification of the topic covered, preferably using the list of topics above. The paper should contain a succinct statement of the issues and of their motivation, a summary of the main results, and a brief explanation of their significance, accessible to non-specialist readers. Proofs omitted due to space constraints must be put into an appendix to be read by the program committee members at their discretion. Submissions deviating from these guidelines risk rejection. Electronic submissions should be formatted in postscript or pdf. Simultaneous submission to other conferences with published proceedings is not allowed.


  • Deadline for submission: January 20, 2006 (firm)
  • Notification to authors: March 7, 2006
  • Final Manuscript Due: March 17, 2006
  • Author registration due: from March 13, to March 20
  • Early registration due: from March 13, to March 31
  • Regular registration due: from April 1, to May 5
