Present CFP : 2017

The 11th Annual International Conference on Combinatorial Optimization and Applications (COCOA 2017) will be held during December 16-18, 2017, in Shanghai, China. Original research papers in the areas of combinatorial optimization and its applications are solicited. In addition to theoretical results, we are particularly interested in submissions that report on experimental and applied research of general algorithmic interest. Special consideration will be given to research that is motivated by real-world problems. Experimental and applied papers are expected to show convincingly the usefulness and efficiency of the algorithms discussed in a practical setting.

The topics include, but are not limited to:

Algorithms and Data Structures
Approximation Algorithms
Operation Research
Communication Network Optimization
Energy Efficient Wireless Sensor Networks
Optimal Resource Management
Social Networks
Complex Network Optimization
Computational Algebra
Computational Geometry
Computational Biology
Computational Financing
Computational Game Theory
Computational Learning Theory
Computational Number Theory
Bioinformatics
Graph Theory
Graph Search
Distributed Computational Systems
Urban Transportation Networks
Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
Scheduling

Important Dates
Abstract Submission Due: July 10, 2017 by 11:59:59 PM (anywhere on earth)
Full Paper Submission Due: July 15, 2017 by 11:59:59 PM
Notification of Acceptance: September 1, 2017
Final Version Submission: September 13, 2017

Paper Submission
The submission should contain scholarly exposition of ideas, techniques, and results, including the motivation and a clear comparison with related work. The length of the submission should not exceed fifteen pages in LNCS style. Submitted papers must describe work not previously published. They must not be submitted simultaneously to any other conference with refereed proceedings or to journals. We regard the following case as a simultaneous submission. Submission of drafts which contain essentially the same results from papers under review in other conferences or journals at the moment of the submission. Only electronic submission will be allowed via the Springer Online Conference System.

The submission server is now available at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cocoa2017.

Publication
The conference proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. After the conference, selected papers will be published in special issues of journals: Algorithmica, Theoretical Computer Science, Journal of Combinatorial Optimization.

Awards
The Best Paper and the Best Student Paper will be awarded. A paper is eligible for the Best Student Paper if all authors are full-time students at the time of submission. To indicate that a submission is eligible, please add the phrase "Eligible for best student paper" as the last sentence in the "Abstract" field in the web form on the submission server.
