Call for Papers

Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract or full paper of at most 12 pages and an optional appendix. The submission should contain a scholarly exposition of ideas, techniques, and results, including motivation and a clear comparison with related work. They must not be submitted simultaneously to another conference with refereed proceedings or to a journal. Drafts which contain essentially the same results as papers under review in other conferences or journals cannot be submitted to ISAAC 2018. At least one author of an accepted paper is required to present the paper at the conference as a registered participant. The topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Algorithmic game theory
  • Algorithms and data structures
  • Approximation algorithms
  • Combinatorial optimization
  • Computational biology
  • Computational complexity
  • Computational geometry
  • Cryptography
  • Experimental algorithmics
  • Graph drawing and graph algorithms
  • Internet algorithms
  • Online algorithms
  • Parallel and distributed algorithms
  • Quantum computing
  • Randomized algorithms

The ISAAC 2018 proceedings will be published in the Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics (LIPIcs) series, based at Schloss Dagstuhl. The submission should follow the LIPIcs LaTeX style, which is available from here. The maximum length of the paper (including references, but excluding the optional appendix) is 12 pages.


Submissions are due on June 29, 2018. Only electronic submission will be allowed via the easychair submission server.


The Best Paper and the Best Student Paper will be awarded. A paper is eligible for the Best Student Paper if all authors are full-time students at the time of submission. To indicate that a submission is eligible, please add the phrase “Eligible for best student paper” as the last sentence in the “Abstract” field in the web form on the submission server as well as in the paper.
