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.


The conference will focus on the design, engineering, theoretical and
experimental performance analysis of algorithms for problems arising in
different areas of computation. We invite submissions that present
significant case studies in theoretical and experimental analysis and
evaluation of algorithms with specific areas including communications
networks, combinatorial optimization and approximation, parallel and
distributed computing, computer systems and architecture, economics,
game theory, social networks and the world wide web. Novel uses of
discrete algorithms in all disciplines and the evaluation of algorithms
for realistic environments are particularly welcome.

Submitted papers will consider a succinct summary of the problem and of
the results obtained (emphasizing the significance and potential impact
of the research), and a clear comparison with related work, all
accessible to non-specialist readers. The remainder of the extended
abstract should provide sufficient detail to allow the program committee
to evaluate the validity, quality, and relevance of the contribution.


The proceedings will be published by Springer (Lecture Notes in Computer
