ALGO is an annual meeting combining the premier algorithmic conference European Symposium on Algorithms (ESA) and a number of other specialized conferences and workshops, all related to algorithms and their applications, making ALGO the major European event for researchers, students and practitioners in algorithms.
ALGO 2021 will be held in Lisbon, in Portugal, and organized by the Computer Science Department of Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisbon. Lisbon is an vibrant city with a tradition of excellent hospitality, good food and amenable weather.
We are monitoring the evolution of the Covid-19 pandemic worldwide, in Europe and in Portugal. Even if we expect some constraints in terms of travel restrictions and limits on social events, we are committed to organizing a hybrid conference, combining a meeting with a critical mass in Lisbon with the possibility of virtual presence. Despite the uncertainties, we are optimistic that the situation will become much clearer during the Spring and that ALGO 2021 will be an opportunity for our community to get together.
Lisbon is a city that makes you want to go exploring, to discover whatever might appear in every neighbourhood, on every street. It’s a safe and friendly city, relatively small but with so much to see. It’s an ideal place to spend a few days or as a starting point for touring the country. It’s old. It’s modern. It is, without doubt, always surprising.
We combat harassment and discrimination in our scientific community, adopting a code of conduct for ther ALGO conferences.
