peter_sandersPETER SANDERS: "Algorithm Engineering"

Peter Sanders received his PhD in computer science from Universität Karlsruhe, Germany in 1996.  After 7 years at the Max-Planck-Institute for Informatics in Saarbrücken he returned to Karlsruhe as a full professor in 2004. In 2004 he was also awarded the Alcatel SEL Research Prize.  He has more than 130 publications, mostly on algorithms for large data sets. This includes parallel algorithms (load balancing,...) memory hierarchies, graph algorithms (route planning, graph partitioning...), randomized algorithms, full text indices,... He is very active in promoting the methodology of algorithm engineering that integrate design, analysis, implementation, and experimental evaluation of algorithms. For example, he currently heads a focus project on AE in Germany.

Day 1: Presentations

The participants will be required to present their work at the doctoral consortium The duration of the talks depends on the phase of the PhD thesis of each student:

  • 1.phase: 10 minutes talk + 20 minutes discussion led by the scientific advisor
  • 2.phase: 15 minutes talk + 25 minutes discussion led by the scientific advisor
  • 3.phase: 20 minutes talk + 10 minutes discussion led by the scientific advisor

In order to ensure an efficient and effective event organization and participation, it is recommended that the students comply with these guidelines when designing their talks. We recommend the following template for organizing the slides so as to meet these goals, with suggestions for how much time to devote to each:

Phase I (5-8 slides, 10 minutes talk)
Problem statement    1-2 slides
Research questions and expected contributions    1 slide
General approach     1-2 slides
Work done so far    1-2 slides
Future work    1 slide

Phase II (8-11 slides, 15 minutes talk)
Problem statement    1-2 slides
Research questions and expected contributions    1 slide
Proposed solution    4-5 slides
Evaluation    1-2 slides
Future work    1 slide

Phase III (10-14 slides, 20 minutes talk)
Problem statement    1-2 slides
Contributions    1 slide
Proposed solution    5-7 slides
Evaluation    2-3 slides
Outlook    1 slide

Students will also have to submit their slides to the organizers prior to the doctoral consortium.

Day 2: Evaluation workshop

The second day of the doctoral consortium will be dedicated to the topic of evaluation, including a tutorial by a renowned scientist and hands-on exercises in which the students will apply what they learned during the tutorial and present the results to the audience.



The seminar will take place in Berlin, on the premises of the Free University of Berlin on September 23-24, 2010. The address of the venue is Takustr. 9, 14195 Berlin Room SR005. Coffee and lunch will be provided in room SR046 in the same building.
The map of the area is available at (The building in which the seminar takes place is number 9 "Informatik"). Information about how to get to the venue is available at
Traveling and accommodation in Berlin should be organized individually. Information about hotels can be found here.
