FPT-Oman 2013

In 2012, the first Workshop on Parameterized Complexity: Not about Graphs! was held at Charles Darwin University in Darwin, Australia. The Workshop on FPT Algorithms and Algorithm Engineering (Preferably Not About Graphs) is the second event in this workshop series. It will take place 18-22 February 2013 at the German University of Technology in Oman (GUtech) in Muscat. The main goal of the workshop is to discuss new developments in parameterized complexity research with a focus on interaction with algorithm engineering.

Meeting Format

There will be a few introductory talks on parameterized complexity and algorithm engineering, but most of the time will be spent with discussions and problem solving sessions. We tentatively plan to spend the first two days at the university and then move to a desert camp where we can work undisturbed. There will also be a post-workshop excursion to the Al Hajar Mountains west of Muscat.
