Short Description

Since its inception in 1989 as AWOCA (Australasian Workshop on Combinatorial Algorithms), IWOCA has provided an  annual forum for researchers who design algorithms for the myriad combinatorial problems that underlie computer applications in science, engineering and business. Previous IWOCA and AWOCA meetings have been held in Australia, Canada, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Indonesia, India, Italy, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, UK, and USA. Previous IWOCAs can be found at

IWOCA 2020 should have taken place in Bordeaux, France. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the workshop was held online, and the talks were live-streamed. All necessary technical details were sent to the participants after the free, but mandatory, registration.
