WAAC08 :: The 11th Japan-Korea Joint Workshop on Algorithms and Computation

July 19-20, 2008, Fukuoka, Japan.


The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum for researchers working on algorithms and the theory of computation, to promote the exchange of recent results, to foster new collaborations among researchers. Historically, the workshop was established for the purpose of collaboration of researchers of Japan and Korea; however, participation from any country is welcome.

The workshop is organized in cooperation with the IEICE Information and Systems Society, Technical Committee on Theoretical Foundations of Computing (COMP), the Special Interest Group on Algorithms (SIGAL) of the Information Processing Society of Japan, and Graduate School of Information Science and Electrical Engineering (ISEE), Kyushu University.
