The Workshop on Algorithms and
Data Structures (WADS), which alternates with the Scandinavian
Workshop on Algorithm Theory, is intended as a forum for
researchers in the area of design, analysis, and implementation
of algorithms and data structures.
WADS 2001 was held on August 8-10, 2001 in Providence, Rhode
Island, on the campus of Brown
University. The WADS 2001 proceedings are published as volume
2125 of the Springer-Verlag series Lecture Notes
in Computer Science. WADS 2001 was sponsored by the Center for
Geometric Computing and by the Department of Computer
Science at Brown
University, with additional support from John Wiley & Sons, Inc..
