Call for Papers

                             TAPAS  2011
        Theory and Practice of Algorithms in Computer Systems

                   April 18-20, 2011, Rome, Italy

                    http://tapasconference.org/
=======================================================================



SCOPE
-----

In the light of continuously increasing interaction between communication
and computing, there arise a number of interesting, and difficult
algorithmic issues in diverse areas including coverage, mobility, routing,
cooperation, capacity planning, scheduling, and power control. The aim of
TAPAS is to provide a forum for presentation of original research in the
design, implementation and evaluation of algorithms. TAPAS is dedicated
to the use, design and evaluation of algorithms for combinatorial
optimization problems (either efficient optimal or efficient approximation
algorithms) and to real-world applications, engineering and experimental
analysis of algorithms. It aims, in particular, at fostering the
cooperation among researchers in computer science, networking, discrete
mathematics, mathematical programming and operations research.

PAPERS
------

The conference will focus on the design, engineering, theoretical and
experimental performance analysis of algorithms for problems arising in
different areas of computation. We invite submissions that present
significant case studies in theoretical and experimental analysis and
evaluation of algorithms with specific areas including communications
networks, combinatorial optimization and approximation, parallel and
distributed computing, computer systems and architecture, economics, game
theory, social networks and the world wide web. Novel uses of discrete
algorithms in all disciplines and the evaluation of algorithms for
realistic environments are particularly welcome.

Submitted papers will consider a succinct summary of the problem and of
the results obtained (emphasizing the significance and potential impact
of the research), and a clear comparison with related work, all accessible
to non-specialist readers. The remainder of the extended abstract should
provide sufficient detail to allow the program committee to evaluate the
validity, quality, and relevance of the contribution.

* The maximum length of the paper (excluding the optional appendix) is 12
 pages.

* Proofs and any other material omitted due to space constraints must be
 placed in an appendix to be read by the program committee members at
 their discretion.

The proceeding will be published by Springer (Lecture Notes in Computer
Science).

IMPORTANT DATES
---------------

* Paper submission due: October 24, 2010
* Notification of acceptance: December 17, 2010
