Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, June 4-6, 2018

The deadline for contributed presentations has now passed.

Acceptance/rejection notifications for contributed presentations will be sent on April 3.

Call for Contributed Presentations

The HALG 2018 conference seeks submissions for contributed presentations. Each presentation is expected to consist of a poster and a short talk (5-minute invitation to the poster). There will be no conference proceedings, hence presenting work already published at a different venue or journal (or to be submitted there) is welcome.

If you would like to present your results at HALG 2018, please submit their details the abstract of the talk or the contribution of the poster via EasyChair.

The abstract should include (when relevant) information where the results have been published/accepted (e.g., conference), and where they are publicly available (e.g., arXiv). All submissions will be reviewed by the program committee, giving priority to new work not formally published yet, and to papers published in 2017 or later.

Submissions deadline: March 13th, 2018.
Late submissions will be accepted subject to space constraints.


The call for nominations has passed; thank you to all who suggested speakers.

Call for Nominations

The HALG 2018 conference seeks high-quality nominations for invited talks that will highlight recent advances in algorithmic research. Similarly to previous years, there are two categories of invited talks:

To nominate, please email halg2018.nominations@gmail.com with the following information:

  1. Basic details: speaker name + topic (for survey talk) or paper's title, authors, conference/arxiv + preferable speaker (for paper talk).
  2. Brief justification: focus on the benefits to the audience, e.g., quality of results, importance/relevance of topic, clarity of talk, speaker's presentation skills. Pay attention to potentially non-obvious information, e.g., the topic might seem out of scope, or the material seems inadequate for one talk.

All nominations will be reviewed by the Program Committee (PC) to select speakers that will be invited to the conference.

Please keep in mind that the conference does not provide financial support for the speakers.

Best regards,
Robert Krauthgamer,
HALG 2018 PC chair
