Announcing PACE 2017

We are happy to announce the second iteration of PACE, the Parameterized Algorithms and Computational Experiments Challenge. The goal of PACE is to investigate the applicability of algorithmic ideas studied and developed in the subfields of multivariate, fine-grained, parameterized, or fixed-parameter tractable algorithms. The challenge consists of two separate tracks. TRACK A (Treewidth Challenges) 1) … More Announcing PACE 2017

Challenge Prizes and Travel Awards

Thanks to the generous support of the NWO Gravitation project NETWORKS, we can announce the following awards for the first PACE challenge. Competition Prizes For each of the two tracks we award prizes. Track A offers four ranked challenges: exact sequential, exact parallel, heuristic sequential, and heuristic parallel computation of treewidth. For each ranked challenge, … More Challenge Prizes and Travel Awards

Announcing the 1st Parameterized Algorithms and Computational Experiments Challenge

The goal of the Parameterized Algorithms and Computational Experiments Challenge (PACE) is to investigate the applicability of algorithmic ideas studied and developed in the subfields of multivariate, fine-grained, parameterized, or fixed-parameter tractable algorithms. In particular, it aims to provide a bridge between the theory of design and analysis of algorithms and the algorithm engineering practice, … More Announcing the 1st Parameterized Algorithms and Computational Experiments Challenge
