Sheraton Vancouver Wall Center
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Submission deadline: September 23, 2004


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 (including 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.

This workshop precedes the ACM-SIAM Symposium on Discrete Algorithms
(SODA'05), being held January 23-25, 2005.

The workshop will take place on the same day as the Second Workshop
on Analytic Algorithmics and Combinatorics (ANALCO'05). 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. The proceedings of
ALENEX and ANALCO will be published by SIAM as a single volume.


Authors are invited to submit 10-page extended abstracts by 5:00 PM
EDT, September 23, 2004, (strict deadline) and must use the SIGACT
electronic submissions server.

A link to the submission server will be available in August at

The deadline for receipt of papers in final version will be included
in the acceptance notification. Presenters must have submitted the
final versions of their papers in order to be able to present them at
the workshop.
