Travel Award 2018
We are inviting applications for a Travel Award for PhD students in
the area of algorithms and their applications to attend a conference
of their choice in 2018. The nominations and applications will be
assessed by an Evaluation Committee consisting of senior scholars
in this field.
Prof. Dr. Henning Fernau
–– PhD students whose research involves algorithms and their
–– Attend an international conference in 2018 to present
research (either via an oral presentation or poster) in the area
of algorithms and their applications, and provide a letter of
acceptance from the conference organizer
–– Applicants are required to submit the following documents:
–– An abstract for the conference
–– Curriculum Vitae, including a complete list of publications.

Travel Award 2018
As Editor-in-Chief of Algorithms, I am pleased to announce the winner of the 2018 Algorithms Travel Award:
The winner is Saeed Seddighin, a Ph.D. student at University of Maryland. His research focuses on theoretical computer science. He is planning to present his work “Fast Algorithms for Knapsack via Convolution and Prediction” at the 50th Annual ACM Symposium on the Theory of Computing (STOC 2018). The award consists of 800 Swiss Francs to attend this conference.
Travel Award 2017
As Editor-in-Chief of Algorithms, I am pleased to announce the winner of the 2017 Algorithms Travel Award on behalf of the Evaluation Committee:
Aviad Rubinstein, Ph.D. student at the UC Berkeley, whose research focuses on computational complexity. He is planning to present his work “Settling the complexity of computing approximate two-player Nash equilibria” at the Highlights of Algorithms (HALG 2017). The award consists of 800 Swiss Francs towards attending this conference.
It was a difficult decision with such high quality applications for the award and we thank all applicants. We wish to congratulate Mr. Aviad Rubinstein for his accomplishments.
Travel Award 2016
As Editor-in-Chief of Algorithms, I am pleased to announce the winner of the 2016 Algorithms Travel Award: Fabrizio Montecchiani, Postdoc fellow at the University of Perugia, whose research focuses on graph drawing, information visualization, algorithm engineering and computational geometry. He is planning to present his work On Visibility Representations of Non-Planar Graphs at the 32nd International Symposium on Computational Geometry (SoCG 2016). The award consists of 800 Swiss Francs to attend this conference.
