The International Frontiers of Algorithmics Workshop (FAW) provides a focused forum on current trends of research on algorithms, discrete structures, operation research, combinatorial optimization and their applications, and will bring together international experts at the research frontiers in these areas to exchange ideas and to present significant new results.

Interesting new results in all areas of algorithmics, operation research and combinatorial optimization and their applications are welcome. In addition to theoretical work, we are also interested in results that report on experimental and applied research of general algorithmic interest. Special considerations will be given to algorithmic research that is motivated by real-world applications. FAW 2019 will be hosted at the Tsinghua Sanya International Mathematics Forum (TSIMF) from April 29 to May 3, 2019.

Instructions to Authors

All submissions will be electronic via EasyChair, and the submission server is now available at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=faw2019. Submissions must adhere to the following guidelines: Papers must be formatted using the LNCS style file without altering margins or the font point. A submission should not exceed 12 pages, including references, but excluding the optional appendix. Proofs omitted due to space constraints must be placed in an appendix to be read by the program committee members at their discretion. Papers that deviate from these guidelines risk being rejected without consideration of their merits. The proceedings of the Conference will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series, and will be available for distribution at the conference.

More information about the workshop will be posted soon.
