Starting from 2023 the ALGOSENSORS event adopts a broader scope of wireless networks in general and its new acronym becomes ALGOWIN.
The International Symposium on Algorithmics of Wireless Networks (ALGOWIN) is an international symposium dedicated to the algorithmic aspects of wireless networks. Originally focused on sensor networks, it now covers algorithmic issues arising in wireless networks of all types of computational entities, static or mobile, including sensor networks, sensor-actuator networks, autonomous robots. The focus is on the design and analysis of algorithms, models of computation, and experimental analysis.
ALGOWIN 2023 will be held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. It will be part of ALGO 2023, which also hosts ALGOCLOUD, ATMOS, ESA, IPEC and WAOA.

Title: Coordinated Motion Planning: Reconfiguring a Swarm of Robots
How do we coordinate the motion of many robots, vehicles, aircraft, or people? If each mobile agent has a destination in mind, how can it find an efficient route that avoids collisions with other agents as they simultaneously move to their destinations? These basic questions arise in many application domains, such as ground swarm robotics, aerial swarm robotics, air traffic control, warehouse management, and vehicular traffic networks. They also have a long tradition in Computational Geometry, reaching back at least until the seminal work of Schwartz and Sharir from the early 1980s.
In this talk, we consider a number of different algorithmic results. Starting with a labeled set of robots on a grid, we aim to minimize the total time for letting each agent reach its destination. We show that we can always achieve constant stretch, i.e., compute a well-choreographed set of trajectories in which the total time until completion is within a multiplicative constant of the largest initial distance. For settings in which the swarm needs to stay connected at all time, there are two additional sets of results, based on different approaches. In addition, we sketch some results for reconfiguring a swarm when agents do not have individual control, but have to follow uniform global forces.

The conference proceedings have been published in the Springer “Lecture Notes in Computer Science” series as LNCS volume 14061. Springer are kindly providing free online access to the proceedings for four weeks (until 15/01/2024):
Selected papers will be invited to a special issue of Theoretical Computer Science.
Awards will be given to the best paper and the best student paper. To be eligible for the best student paper award, at least one of the paper authors must be a full-time student at the time of submission, and the student(s) must have made a significant contribution to the paper. The program committee may decline to make these awards or may split them.
Papers are to be submitted electronically using the EasyChair server. The submissions must contain original results that have not already been published and are not concurrently submitted to a journal or conference with published proceedings. By submitting a paper, the authors acknowledge that in case of acceptance at least one of the authors will register for ALGO/ALGOWIN 2023 and present the paper.
Submissions must be in the form of a single pdf file prepared using the LNCS latex templates and style files (available, together with Springer’s authors’ guidelines, from https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines). Springer’s proceedings LaTeX templates are also available on Overleaf (https://www.overleaf.com/latex/templates/springer-lecture-notes-in-computer-science/kzwwpvhwnvfj#.WsdHOy5uZpg).
Each submission should consist of the main part of the paper, not exceeding 12 pages (including the title page and excluding the references), plus an optional clearly marked appendix (to be read at the discretion of the program committee). Any figure pertaining to the main part of the paper should be included therein (within the 12 page limit). The first page must include an indication of whether the paper is eligible for the best student paper award.
