WEPA (Workshop on Enumeration Problems and Applications) is a young 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 databases. The goal is to present recent results, identify and explore directions for future research, and foster collaborations. WEPA 2020 was held online from December 7 to December 10, 2020.
We invite participants of WEPA 2020 as well as other researchers on enumeration algorithms to contribute to this special issue of Discrete Applied Mathematics. Submissions should relate to the themes of WEPA, including but not restricted to:
Applications in biology, data mining, logic, and databases
Approximate enumeration and counting
Combinatorial enumeration and counting
Submissions of contributions not presented at the workshop are welcome. Contributions arising from abstracts presented in the conference should be suitably extended, and should cite the conference paper where appropriate. All articles will be thoroughly refereed according to the high standards of Discrete Applied Mathematics.
The full papers must be submitted through the Editorial Manager (https://www.editorialmanager.com/dam/default.aspx). Please see the Author Instructions on the site if you have not yet submitted a paper through this web-based system. When submitting your paper, be sure to specify that the paper is a contribution for the Special Issue of WEPA 2020 by selecting the article type Special Issue: WEPA 2020, so that your paper is assigned to the guest editors.
The deadline for submission is June 30, 2021.
Accepted papers will be published online individually, before print publication.
We are looking forward to receiving your contribution.
The Guest Editors,
Alessio Conte and Benny Kimelfeld
