But the crux of the matter is this: experimental algorithmics papers have no place in places like SIGMOD/VLDB/SIGGRAPH. You know as well as anyone how difficult it is to write a SIGGRAPH paper and what kinds of things are emphasized (experimental rigor is certainly not the main criterion). In general, in applied places, the focus is on the application, and in theory places, the focus is on the theory. There is still no natural place for papers that address the practical aspects of theoretical work in a more general setting, hence the need for ALENEX type conferences. Moreover, since such work is arguably closer to theory than to the particular applied domain (because typically one wants to look at an algorithm/set of algorithms in general), it is more natural to send such papers to a theory conf.

Basically I am distinguishing between experimental papers and applied papers (category 3 vs categories 1/2 in the Johnson survey)



Im very astonished to see a blog about Nancy. I lived in Nancy (my family live always in Nancy) and now in Paris. you photo blog is interesting : the next time I came back to Nancy, I would try to see these fishes.
don't miss the nancy jazz pulsation in October : free music in many bars.
