COCOON 2017 : Computing and Combinatorics Conference
Conference Series : Computing and Combinatorics Conference
Call For Papers
The 23rd Annual International Computing and Combinatorics Conference (COCOON'17) will be held in Hong Kong, China, during August 3–5, 2017. 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.
All the papers will be published to the symposium in Springer-Verlag's Lecture Notes. Papers of high quality will be invited to special issues of Algorithmica, Theoretical Computer Science (TCS), and Journal of Combinatorial Optimization (JOCO).
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Algorithms and Data Structures
Algorithmic Game Theory
Approximation Algorithms and Online Algorithms
Automata, Languages, Logic, and Computability
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
Paper submission due: March 20, 2017 (Anywhere on Earth)
Notification of acceptance: May 20, 2017
Camera-ready and registration: June 1, 2017
Conference dates: August 3–5, 2017
Deadlines are firm; late submissions will not be considered.
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 other refereed conferences is disallowed. Papers authored or co-authored by members of the program committee are not allowed.
Submissions must adhere to the following guidelines: Papers must be formatted using the LNCS style file (ftp://ftp.springer.de/pub/tex/latex/llncs/latex2e/llncs2e.zip) 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 EasyChair (http://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cocoon2017).
