About the Conference

About the Conference


The aim of ALENEX is toprovide a forum for the presentation of original research in the design,implementation, and experimental evaluation of algorithms and data structures.Typical submissions will include an extensive experimental analysis ofnontrivial algorithmic results, ideally bridging the gap between theory andpractice. We also invite submissions that address methodological issues andstandards in the experimental evaluation of algorithms and data structures.

Relevant areas of appliedalgorithmic research include but are not limited to databases; geometry; graphsand networks, including web applications; operations research; combinatorialaspects of scientific computing; and computational problems in the naturalsciences or engineering.

Also encouraged aresubmissions that address algorithms and data structures for advanced models ofcomputing, including memory hierarchies and parallel computing, ranging frominstruction parallelism over multicore computing to high-performance and cloudcomputing.

ALENEX21 is co-located withthe meetings listed below. Since researchers in all fields are approaching theproblem of learning detailed information about the performance of particularalgorithms, we expect that interesting synergies will develop.

Proceedings will bepublished openly and electronically in January 2021 as SIAM ePubs. A specialsection of the ACM Journal of Experimental Algorithmics will be dedicated toselected papers from ALENEX.

ALENEX is supported by SIAM.

The following meetings will be held jointly:
ACM-SIAM Symposium on Discrete Algorithms
SIAM Symposium on Algorithm Engineering and Experiments
SIAM Symposium on Simplicity in Algorithms
SIAM Symposium on Algorithmic Principles of Computer Systems
