We hope this can be a useful event in Pisa to meet people, with open 
sessions to brainstorm and discuss new problems (deadline for 
submissions is in a month).
We look froward to submission from the Graph Drawing and Information 
Visualization community, to discuss the applications of enumeration 
algorithms (e.g., subgraph enumeration) in this area.

Best regards,



WEPA 2018: Second Workshop on Enumeration Problems and Applications
November 5-8, Department of Computer Science, University of Pisa, Pisa
Submission Deadline: Sep 3, 2018 (AoE)
Notification: Sep 25, 2018

The WEPA 2018 conference is the Second Workshop on Enumeration Problems
and Applications. It will take place at Department of Computer Science
of University of Pisa, in Pisa (Italy). The conference will take place
from Monday November 5 to Tuesday November 8, 2018.


Submission of papers: Sep 3, 2018 (AoE)
Acceptance notification: Sep 25, 2018
Registration: Oct 15, 2018
Conference: Nov 5-8, 2018

WEPA is a new international forum for researchers in the area of design,
analysis, experimental evaluation and engineering of algorithms for
enumeration problems. The objective of the workshop is to gather
researchers working in enumeration algorithms, including their
applications in Biology, Data Mining, Logic, and Database. The goal is
to present recent results, identify and explore directions for future
research, and foster collaborations.

For this reason, along with the sessions for the presentation of
established results, this year WEPA will introduce new sessions that are
devoted to ideas, sketches, and open problems: hopefully this will put
in touch senior researchers with junior researchers and graduate
students to investigate problems of theoretical and practical interest.
These new sessions will be informal, with no scheduled presentations,
entirely devoted to the interactions among the participants. The
workshop will be accommodated some rooms to allow space for the parallel
working groups.

Submissions to WEPA should describe results in any area of enumeration
problems and including, but not restricted to:
- Applications in Biology, Data Mining, Logic, and Database
- Approximate enumeration and counting
- Combinatorial enumeration and counting (hypergraph dualization,
lattices, functional dependencies,...)
- Input-sensitive algorithms
- Output-sensitive algorithms

There is no registration fee for WEPA this year. However, it is
mandatory to register before 20 October 2018 by sending a message to
wepa2018nov at gmail.com


Contributors are invited to submit an extended abstract of at most 2
pages to be submitted electronically using EasyChair at the link
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wepa2018. Invited papers and
accepted contributions will be invited to contribute to a special issue
in a journal.
