  • Future prospects in algorithm research
  • Growth of and advances in space efficient data structures
  • Sorting and searching in data structures
This Festschrift volume, published in honour of J. Ian Munro, contains contributions written by some of his colleagues, former students, and friends. In celebration of his 66th birthday the colloquium "Conference on Space Efficient Data Structures, Streams and Algorithms" was held in Waterloo, ON, Canada, during August 15-16, 2013. The articles presented herein cover some of the main topics of Ian's research interests. Together they give a good overall perspective of the last 40 years of research in algorithms and data structures.
