About SEA

SEA (Symposium on Experimental Algorithms), previously known as WEA (Workshop on Experimental Algorithms), is an international forum for researchers in the area of design, analysis, and experimental
evaluation and engineering of algorithms, as well as in various aspects of computational optimization and its applications. The preceding symposia were held in Riga, Monte Verità, Rio de Janeiro, Santorini, Menorca Island, Rome, Cape Cod, Dortmund, Ischia Island, Crete, Bordeaux, and Rome. Its American counterpart ALENEX (Algorithm Engineering and Experiments) has been arranged annually since 1999.

The main theme of the symposium is the role of experimentation and of algorithm-engineering techniques in the design and evaluation of algorithms and data structures. According to an open call, submissions
should present significant contributions supported by experimental evaluation, methodological issues in the design and interpretation of experiments, the use of (meta-)heuristics, or application-driven case studies that deepen the understanding of the complexity of a problem.
