The symposium, which alternates with the Algorithms and Data Structures Symposium (WADS), is a 
forum for researchers in the area of design and analysis of algorithms and data structures.
We invite submissions of papers presenting original research on algorithms and data structures 
in all areas, including but not limited to approximation algorithms, parameterized algorithms, 
computational biology, computational geometry, distributed algorithms, external-memory algorithms, 
exponential algorithms, graph algorithms, online algorithms, optimization algorithms, randomized 
algorithms, streaming algorithms, string algorithms, sublinear algorithms, and algorithmic game 

Contributors must submit their papers using the Easychair system at 
<< https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=swat2012 >>.
Submissions must be of at most 12 pages using 11 point or larger font and with reasonable line 
spacing and margins. Additionally, a clearly marked appendix may be included; this appendix will 
not be regarded as part of the submission and will be considered only at the discretion of the 
program committee. Papers submitted for review should represent original, previously unpublished 
work. At the time the paper is submitted to the symposium, and for the entire review period, the 
paper (or essentially the same paper) must not be under review by any other conference with 
published proceedings or by a scientific journal. At least one author of every accepted paper is 
expected to register and present the paper at the symposium. Symposium proceedings will be 
published in the "Lecture Notes in Computer Science" (LNCS) series of Springer.
