Fun with algorithms 2012
June 4-6, 2012
San Servolo Island
Venice, Italy

The Sixth International conference on Fun with Algorithms (FUN 2012) is dedicated to the use, design, and analysis of algorithms and data structures, focusing on results that provide amusing, witty but nonetheless original and scientifically profound contributions to the area. The previous FUNs were held in Elba Island, in Castiglioncello, Tuscany, Italy, and in Ischia Island, Italy, and special issues of Theoretical Computer Science (FUN'98), Discrete Applied Mathematics (FUN'01), and Theory of Computing Systems (FUN'04, FUN'07, and FUN'10) were dedicated to them.

The topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
FUN with biological algorithms
FUN with cryptographic algorithms
FUN with game-theoretic algorithms
FUN with internet algorithms
FUN with algorithm visualization
FUN with string algorithms
FUN with opimization algorithms
FUN with robotics algorithms
FUN with combinatorial algorithms
FUN with distributed algorithms
FUN with geometrical algorithms
FUN with mobile algorithms
FUN with parallel algorithms
FUN with space-conscious algorithms
