Call for Papers:
The International Workshop on Parameterized and Exact Computation covers research in all aspects of parameterized and exact computation and complexity, including but not limited to: new techniques for the design and analysis of parameterized and exact exponential-time algorithms, parameterized complexity theory, relationship between parameterized complexity and traditional complexity classifications, applications of parameterized computation, implementation and experiments, high-performance computing and fixed-parameter tractability. The goal is to present recent research results, including significant work-in-progress, and to identify and explore directions for future research. The two previous workshops were held in Bergen, Norway (2004), and Zurich, Switzerland (2006). The proceedings appeared in the Springer LNCS series, volumes 3162 and 4169. IWPEC 2008 will be colocated frontend with ACM STOC 2008 held from May 17 to May 20. The proceedings of IWPEC 2008 are expected to be published in the Springer series Lecture Notes in Computer Science.
Submissions Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract in English no longer than 12 pages using at least 11-point font describing original unpublished research. Simultaneous submission to other conferences with published proceedings is not permitted. Additional details as necessary may be included in a clearly marked appendix that will be read at the discretion of the program committee. Instructions for electronic submissions will be posted at the conference web site. Authors unable to submit electronically should contact either of the Program Co-Chairs. Accepted papers are expected to be presented at the workshop.
