Welcome to TAPAS 2011

The 1st International ICST Conference on Theory and Practice of Algorithms
in (Computer) Systems

18-20 April 2011 - Rome, Italy


In the light of continuously increasing interaction between communication and computing, there arise a number of interesting, and difficult algorithmic issues in diverse areas including coverage, mobility, routing, cooperation, capacity planning, scheduling, and power control. The aim of TAPAS is to provide a forum for presentation of original research in the design, implementation and evaluation of algorithms. TAPAS is dedicated to the use, design and evaluation of algorithms for combinatorial optimization problems (either efficient optimal or efficient approximation algorithms) and to real-world applications, engineering and experimental analysis of algorithms. It aims, in particular, at fostering the cooperation among researchers in computer science, networking, discrete mathematics, mathematical programming and operations research.
