Not very important as a category. Some overlap with data structures. \item() Algorithms > Fixed-Parameter Tractability Medium-small size. Modern topic. Not very important as a category. \item() Algorithms > Average-case and smoothed analysis Medium-small size. Traditional but not very active topic. Not very important as a category. \item(??) Algorithms > Algorithm Analysis / Algorithm Theory / Techniques I wish there were an active area like this.
