Welcome to SEA 2015

SEA is 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 symposia were held in Riga, Monte Verita, Rio de Janeiro, Santorini, Menorca Island, Rome, Cape Cod, Dortmund, Ischia Island, Crete, Bordeaux, Rome and Copenhagen.

SEA 2015 will take place at Sorbonne Universités - Université Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC) in Paris, France.

The main theme of the symposium is the role of experimentation and of algorithm engineering techniques in the design and evaluation of algorithms and data structures. Submissions should present significant contributions supported by experimental evaluation, methodological issues in the design and interpretation of experiments, the use of (meta-)heuristics, or application-driven case studies that deepen the understanding of a problem's complexity.

  • Algorithm Engineering
  • Algorithmic Libraries
  • Algorithmic Mechanism Design
  • Analysis of Algorithms
