Approx 2014 + Random 2014
The 17th. International Workshop on Approximation Algorithms for Combinatorial Optimization Problems (APPROX'2014), and the 18th. International Workshop on Randomization and Computation (RANDOM'2014) will be held will be held in 4-6 September 2014 at Barcelona.
APPROX'2014 focuses on algorithmic and complexity theoretic issues relevant to the development of efficient approximate solutions to computationally difficult problems, while RANDOM'2014 focus on applications of randomness to computational and combinatorial problems. RANDOM'2014 is the eighteenth workshop in the series; APPROX'2014 is the seventeenth in the series.
4.9.2014 :The proceedings volume of APPROX/RANDOM'14 as volume 28 of LIPIcs is now officially published here: proceedings
Papers are solicited in all research areas related to randomization and approximation, including, but not limited to:
Abstract Format: Electronic submissions are solicited. Please consult the following servers:
For submission of APPROX papers:
For submission of RANDOM papers:
Note: You will be asked to login using an EasyChair account. Directions on how to register for such an account are available at the submission servers (you may also have an old account from a previous conference submission).
The submission must be received by 17:00pm (PDT) of April 17 for your submission to be considered.
Submission Format: Submissions should start with the title of the paper, each author`s name, affiliation, and e-mail address, followed by a one-paragraph summary of the results to be presented. This should then be followed by a technical exposition on single-spaced pages on letter-size paper, using reasonable margins and at least 11-point font. The first 10 pages should contain the main ideas and techniques used to achieve the results including motivation and a clear comparison with related work (not including the references). There is no page limit but any material beyond the first 10 pages will be read at the sole discretion of the program committee.
Accepted papers will be published in the online proceedings of the conference in the Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics (LIPIcs) series, based at Schloss Dagstuhl. This guarantees perennial, free and easy electronic access, while the authors retain the rights over their work. Further detail will be available early January at the conference website.
