Call For Papers

The 21st International Computing and Combinatorics Conference (COCOON'15) will be held in Beijing, China, during August 4-6, 2015. Original research papers in the areas of algorithms, theory of computation, computational complexity, and combinatorics related to computing 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 program topics include but not limited to:
Algorithms and Data Structures
Algorithmic Game Theory
Approximation Algorithms and Online Algorithms
Automata, Languages, Logic, and Computability
Complexity Theory
Computational Learning Theory and Knowledge Discovery
Cryptography, Reliability and Security, and Database Theory
Computational Biology and Bioinformatics
Computational Algebra, Geometry, and Number Theory
Graph Drawing and Information Visualization
Graph Theory, Communication Networks, and Optimization
Parallel and Distributed Computing

Important Dates:
Submission Deadline: February 15, 2015
Notification of acceptance: April 5, 2015
Camera Ready: April 25, 2015
Conference Dates: August 4-6, 2015

Submission instructions:
Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract of original research on Computing and Combinatorics. Submissions must contain a scholarly exposition of the ideas, techniques, and a full description of the results achieved. A clear indication of the motivation and comparison with prior related work should be presented. Simultaneous submission to a journal or another conference with refereed proceedings is not allowed.
Submissions must adhere to the following guidelines:

Papers must be formatted using the LNCS style file without altering margins or the font point. The maximum length of the paper (including references, but excluding the optional appendix) is 12 pages. Proofs omitted due to space constraints must be placed in an appendix to be read by the program committee members at their discretion.

Papers that deviate from these guidelines risk being rejected without consideration of their merits. Papers should be submitted electronically via the Springer Online Conference System . The submission deadline is February 15, 2015 (Anywhere on Earth). Papers of high quality will be invited to special issues of Algorithmica , Theoretical Computer Science , and Journal of Combinatorial Optimization , respectively.

Final Paper Submission:
The deadline for submitting the final version is April 25, 2015. Your final submission must include:

All the source files and a pdf version of the final submission
A scanned image file of a completed and signed copyright form

Guidelines for preparing the final version of your paper:
The proceedings of COCOON 2015 will be published in Springer-Verlag Lecture Note in Computer Science series (LNCS). Read carefully Springer's instructions on preparing the manuscript. We request that you use LaTeX with the llncs.cls style file. Keep in mind that the length of your paper should not exceed 12 pages in LNCS style.
