COCOON 2018 : Computing and Combinatorics Conference
Conference Series : Computing and Combinatorics Conference
Call For Papers
Welcome to COCOON 2018
The 24th International Computing and Combinatorics Conference (COCOON'18) will be held in Qingdao, China during July 2-4, 2018. 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 venue of the conference will be the Qingdao Campus of Shandong University.
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), respectively.
The topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:
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: Feb. 20, 2018 (Anywhere on Earth)
Notification of Acceptance: Apr. 20, 2018
Camera-ready and Registration: Apr. 22, 2018
Conference Dates: July 2-4, 2018
