Call for Papers

Special Issue on Algorithm Engineering

Algorithmica is planning a special issue on Algorithm Engineering, a topic which is recently gaining much attention in our community. This special issue will be devoted to researchers and developers interested in practical aspects of algorithms and their implementation issues. In particular, it will focus on the design, experimental analysis and tuning of sequential, parallel and distributed algorithms to the point where they are readily available for practical deployment. Submissions addressing general methodological issues and significant case studies in this area are especially welcome.

The deadline for submissions is March 31, 1998. To submit please send 4 (four) copies of a full paper to the Guest Editor:
