Since its inception in 1989 as AWOCA (Australasian Workshop on Combinatorial Algorithms), IWOCA has provided an annual forum for researchers who design algorithms for the myriad combinatorial problems that underlie computer applications in science, engineering and business. Previous IWOCA and AWOCA meetings have been held in Australia, Canada, Czech Republic, Finland, France, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, UK, and USA. Information on previous IWOCA conferences can be found at www.iwoca.org

IWOCA 2021 will be held online-only, hosted by the University of Ottawa, Canada. The conference is focusing on significant research contributions to the broad area of combinatorial algorithms, including (but not limited to):

  • Approximation Algorithms
  • Complexity Theory
  • Combinatorics and Graph Theory
  • Combinatorial Generation and Enumeration
  • Combinatorial Optimization
  • Combinatorics of Words and Strings
  • Computational Geometry
