Author Instructions

Authors are invited to submit papers (extended abstracts) describing original research of theoretical or practical significance to algorithms and computation. Papers should not exceed 12 pages in LNCS style. Papers significantly shorter than 12 pages are also welcome. If the authors feel that more details are essential to substantiate the main claim of the paper, they may include a clearly marked appendix that will be read at the discretion of the Program Committee. Only electronic submission will be allowed. Submitted papers must describe work not previously published. They must not be submitted simultaneously to another conference with refereed proceedings or to a journal.

 

PROCEEDINGS

Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings which will be included in the Springer-Verlag series Lecture Notes in Computer Science (www.springer.com/lncs).

 

JOURNAL SPECIAL ISSUE

Special issues dedicated to WALCOM 2015 will be published at the Journal of Graph Algorithms and Applications and the Journal of Discrete Algorithms.

 

VENUE

The workshop will be held at the Training Center, Atomic Energy Research Establish, at Savar, Dhaka. The workshop will be jointly organized by Bangladesh Atomic Energy Commission and Bangladesh Academy of Sciences.
