The list of accepted papers for ESA 2011 is online. Below is my own quick take on which papers are about exponential time algorithms.
ESA 2011 is colocated with IPEC under the ALGO 2011 umbrella, so there will be plenty of exciting results that week.
- Dimitrios Thilikos. Fast sub-exponential Algorithms and Compactness in Planar Graphs.
- Gwenaël Joret, Christophe Paul, Ignasi Sau, Saket Saurabh, Stéphan Thomassé, Hitting and Harvesting Pumpkins, arXiv:1105.2704.
- Fedor Fomin, Ioan Todinca and Yngve Villanger, Exact algorithm for the maximum induced planar subgraph problem, Todinca’s slides from Worksh. Graph. Decomp. 2010.
- Marek Cygan, Marcin Pilipczuk, Michal Pilipczuk and Jakub Wojtaszczyk, Scheduling partially ordered jobs faster than 2n.
I’m probably missing some results, but without online abstracts it’s hard to tell. I cannot judge a paper from its title alone. Comments and corrections are welcome, in particular links to online manuscripts.
