Selected papers from the conference will be invited for publication in Theoretical Computer Science (Elsevier),and will be published as part of a regular issue as per the norms of the review process of the journal.

The 3rd International Workshop on Algorithms and Computation (WALCOM 2009) will take place at Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata, India, during February 18-20, 2009. WALCOM 2009 will be hosted by Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata. The workshop is intended to provide a forum for researchers working in algorithms and the theory of computation. Papers presenting original research in the areas of design and analysis of algorithms, computational geometry, graph drawing and graph algorithms are sought. The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in its Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.

The topics include but are not limited to:

  • algorithms and data structures
  • approximation algorithms
  • combinatorial algorithms
  • computational biology
  • computational geometry
  • experimental algorithm methodologies
  • graph drawing and graph algorithms
  • parallel and distributed algorithms
  • quantum computing
  • randomized algorithms
