WADS 2017

July 31 - August 2, 2017
Memorial University of Newfoundland, St. John’s, Canada

The Algorithms and Data Structures Symposium, WADS, which alternates with the Scandinavian Symposium and Workshops on Algorithm Theory, SWAT, is intended as 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 the theory and application of algorithms and data structures in all areas, including combinatorics, computational geometry, databases, graphics, and parallel and distributed computing. All proceedings are published in the Springer Verlag series Lecture Notes in Computer Science. Two special issues of papers selected from WADS are planned for the Algorithmica and Computational Geometry: Theory and Applications journals.

Plenary Speakers

Pankaj Agarwal, Duke University
Michael Saks, Rutgers University
