WAOA 2022

Scope

Approximation and online algorithms are fundamental tools to deal with computationally hard problems and problems in which the input is gradually disclosed over time. Both kinds of problems arise from a large number of applications in a variety of fields. The workshop focuses on the design and analysis of approximation and online algorithms. It also covers experimental methods used to design and analyze efficient approximation and online algorithms. It is colocated with ALGO 2022, which also hosts ESA, ALGOCLOUD, ALGOSENSORS and ATMOS. ALGO 2022 will take place ? September 2022 in Potsdam, Germany.

Important Dates

  • Notification of acceptance:
  • Camera ready:
  • Conference dates: September ?, 2022, in Potsdam, Germany

Call for Papers

Submissions should start with the title of the paper, each author’s name, affiliation, and e-mail address, followed by a one- or two-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, page numbers, 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. Simultaneous submission to other conferences with published proceedings is not allowed. Submitted papers are not required to be in LNCS style style.

Papers should be submitted electronically via the EasyChair submission system at:

By submitting a paper the authors acknowledge that in case of acceptance at least one of the authors must register at ALGO 2022 and present the paper. The program committee may award a Best Paper Award to one of the accepted papers.
