It is being organized in cooperation with IEICE Technical Committee on Theoretical Foundations of Computing (COMP) and the Special Interest Group for ALgorithms (SIGAL) of the Information Processing Society of Japan (IPSJ).


The range of topics within the scope of WALCOM includes but is not limited to:
  • Approximation Algorithms
  • Algorithmic Graph Theory and Combinatorics
  • Combinatorial Algorithms
  • Combinatorial Optimization
  • Computational Biology
  • Computational Complexity
  • Computational Geometry
  • Discrete Geometry
  • Data Structures
  • Experimental Algorithm Methodologies
  • Graph Algorithms
  • Graph Drawing
  • Parallel and Distributed Algorithms
  • Parameterized Algorithms
  • Parameterized Complexity
  • Network Optimization
  • Online Algorithms
  • Randomized Algorithms
  • String Algorithms

Author Instructions

Authors are invited to submit papers (extended abstracts) describing original research of theoretical or practical significance to algorithms and computation. Papers should not exceed 12 pages in LNCS style. Papers significantly shorter than 12 pages are also welcome. If the authors feel that more details are essential to substantiate the main claim of the paper, they may include a clearly marked appendix that will be read at the discretion of the Program Committee. Only electronic submissions via Easychair will be allowed (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=walcom2019). Submitted papers must describe work not previously published. They must not be submitted simultaneously to another conference with refereed proceedings or to a journal.


Two awards, namely, "The Best Paper" and "The Best Student Paper" will be awarded. A paper is eligible for the Best Student Paper if the paper is presented by an author, who is a full-time student.


Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings. Following the tradition of the previous editions of WALCOM the proceedings will be included in the Springer-Verlag series, Lecture Notes in Computer Science.
