     11th Workshop on Algorithm Engineering and Experiments

                   ALENEX 2009 - CALL FOR PAPERS

                           January 3, 2009
                       New York City, New York



The aim of the ALENEX workshop is to provide a forum for presentation
of original research in the implementation and experimental evaluation
of algorithms and data structures. We invite submissions that present
significant case studies in experimental analysis (such studies may
tighten, extend, or otherwise improve current theoretical results) or
in the implementation, testing, and evaluation of algorithms for
realistic environments and scenarios, including specific applied areas
(databases, networks, operations research, computational biology and
physics, computational geometry, and the world wide web) that present
unique challenges in their underlying algorithmic problems. We also
invite submissions that address methodological issues and standards in
the context of empirical research on algorithms and data structures.
The scientific program will include time for discussion and debate of
topics in this rapidly evolving research area.

The workshop is supported by SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied
Mathematics) and by SIGACT (ACM Special Interest Group on Algorithms
and Computation Theory). It precedes the ACM-SIAM Symposium on
Discrete Algorithms (SODA09), being held on January 4-6, 2009, and
takes place on the same day as the Workshop on Analytic Algorithmics
and Combinatorics (ANALCO09). Since researchers in both fields are
approaching the problem of learning detailed information about the
performance of particular algorithms, we expect that interesting
synergies will develop.


Deadline for submission: October 1, 2008
Notification to authors: mid-November, 2008
Final version: mid-December, 2008
Workshop: January 3, 2009


Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract electronically by
October 1, 2008 (11:59 EDT PM, strict deadline). The electronic
submission server is at:


The abstract must consist of at most 10 pages. Results omitted due to
space constraints can be put into a clearly marked appendix, which
will be read at the discretion of the program committee. Simultaneous
submission to other conferences with published proceedings is not

The proceedings of ALENEX will be published openly and electronically
by SIAM. A special issue of the ACM Journal of Experimental
Algorithmics (JEA) will be dedicated to selected papers from ALENEX09.
Authors of accepted papers are also strongly encouraged to submit
publicly available code and data to JEA Research Code Repository
