The design and evaluation of algorithms has been a major concern of computer science since its founding days and is still a matter of discussion. In this talk, I will present joint research with Henrik Leopold and Benoit Depaire on a single ontological, epistemological and methodological framework describing algorithm engineering. Our development of such a framework is important for better understanding how research on algorithms can be evaluated.
