The Parameterized Algorithms and Computational Experiments Challenge (PACE) was conceived in Fall 2015 to deepen the relationship between parameterized algorithms and practice. Topics from multivariate algorithms, exact algorithms, fine-grained complexity, and related fields are in scope.
PACE aims to:
- Bridge the divide between the theory of algorithm design and analysis, and the practice of algorithm engineering
- Inspire new theoretical developments
- Investigate in how far theoretical algorithms from parameterized complexity and related fields are competitive in practice
- Produce universally accessible libraries of implementations and repositories of benchmark instances
- Encourage the dissemination of these findings in scientific papers
