Call for Papers

The Eleventh International Conference on Algorithmic Aspects of Information and Management will  be hosted by University of Bergamo. The conference will provide a  forum on current trends of research on algorithms, data structures, operation research, combinatorial optimization and their applications.
AAIM will bring together international experts at the research frontiers in these areas to exchange ideas and to present significant new results.
Interesting new results in all areas of algorithm design, operation research and combinatorial optimization and their applications are welcome. Both theoretical and experimental/applied works of general algorithmic interest are sought. Special considerations will be given to algorithmic research that is motivated by real-world applications. Experimental and applied papers are expected to show convincingly the usefulness and efficiency of the target algorithms in practical settings.

Typical, but not exclusive, topics of interest include:

  • Algorithms and data structures;
  • Algorithmic game theory and incentive analysis;
  • Approximation algorithms and online algorithms;
  • Automata, languages, logic, and computability;
  • Bioinformatics, computational biology and medicine, and biomedical applications;
  • Biomedical imaging algorithms;
  • Combinatorial optimization;
  • Combinatorics and discrete structures related to algorithms and complexity;
  • Communication networks and optimization;
  • Complexity theory;
  • Computational algebra, geometry, number theory, and statistics;
  • Computational learning theory, knowledge discovery, and data mining;
  • Cryptography, reliability, and security;
  • Database theory, large databases, and natural language processing;
  • Experimental algorithmic methodologies;
  • Geometric information processing and communication;
  • Graph algorithms and theory;
  • Graph drawing and information visualization;
  • Internet algorithms and protocols;
  • Large graph algorithms and social network analysis;
  • Optimization algorithms in economic and operations research;
  • Parallel and distributed computing and multicore algorithms;
  • Parameterized algorithms, heuristics, and analysis;
  • Pattern recognition algorithms;
  • Trustworthy algorithms and trustworthy software.

AAIM 2016 will only accept electronic (PS or PDF) submissions via easychair.

E-mails will be sent to the authors to confirm the receipt of their submissions within 24 hours. For any problem or question on submissions, please send e-mails to

Only previously unpublished new results will be considered for publication. Papers that have already been published or simultaneously submitted at another journal or conference (with published proceedings) will not be considered.

A submission should start with the title of the paper, each author’s name, affiliation, and e-mail address, and a one-paragraph summary of the results. This should be followed by a scholarly exposition of the ideas, techniques, and a full description of the results achieved. A clear indication of the motivation and comparison with prior or related work should be presented. The paper should not exceed 12 pages, including bibliography, formatted for letter-size paper using 11 point or larger font, with at least one inch margins around.
Additional details can be included in a clearly marked appendix, to be consulted at the discretion of program committee members. The appendix is not included in the page limit, and will not be published in the conference proceedings.

Submissions that deviate significantly from these guidelines or are unprintable risk rejection without consideration of their merit.

At least one author of an accepted paper is expected to present the paper at the conference as a registered participant.

The Proceedings of the Conference will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series, and will be available for distribution at the conference.

Special Issues:
Selected high quality papers will be invited to a special issue of Theoretical Computer Science. The invited papers will go through the normal reviewing process.
