The 4th Workshop on Algorithm Engineering and Experiments (ALENEX 02), was held in San Francisco, California, on January 4-5, 2002 at the Radisson Miyako Hotel. It was co-located with the Thirteenth Annual ACM-SIAM Symposium on Discrete Algorithms (SODA02), which took place the following three days, January 6-8, 2002.
The aim of the annual ALENEX workshops is to provide a forum for the presentation of original research in the implementation and experimental evaluation of algorithms and data structures. We invite submissions in all areas of algorithm engineering and experimentation including:
| Databases|| Networks|| Operations research|
| Mathematical programming|| Computational biology|| Computational physics|
| Computational finance|| Computational geometry|| World Wide Web|
The proceedings of ALENEX 02 have been published in Springer's series Lecture Notes in Computer Science as volume LNCS 2409.
A special issue of the ACM Journal of Experimental Algorithmics will be devoted to selected papers from this workshop.
