The 22nd Korea-Japan Joint Workshop on Algorithms and Computation

This annual workshop has a long tradition of scientific collaboration and academic friendship between neighboring countries that will continue unaffected by political fluctuations.

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 has established for the purpose of collaboration of researchers of Korea and Japan; however, participation from any country is welcome.

The workshop is organized by the Special Interest Group on Algorithms (SIGAL) of the Information Processing Society of Japan and the Special Interest Group on Theoretical Computer Science (SIGTCS) of the Korean Institute of Information Scientists and Engineers (KIISE).

The topics covered by the workshop are, but not limited to:

  • Automata, languages and computability
  • Algorithms (combinatorial/graph/geometric/randomized)
  • VLSI and parallel algorithms
  • Networks and distributed algorithms
  • Learning theory and data mining
  • Number theory and cryptography
  • Graph drawing and visualization
  • Computational logic
  • Combinatorics and optimization


Authors are invited to submit papers up to 8 pages in English via the EasyChair submission system no later than August 26, 2019.

Since the proceedings will be only distributed at the workshop, submission of preliminary or extended versions of materials that are to appear in other conferences or journals is allowed and encouraged.

The paper must be written in English. The camera-ready version must be printed to fit A4 size sheet. It cannot exceed 8 pages including the title page. The first page must be in single column style although the following pages could be in double columns.
