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 will take place in Bordeaux, which is located in the South West of France and is easy to reach by plane and by fast train (TGV). The region is famous for its wines and its gastronomy. The city centre of Bordeaux is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site​.
