COCOON 2020 : The 26th International Computing and Combinatorics Conference
Conference Series : Computing and Combinatorics Conference
Call For Papers
COCOON 2020 will be a fully online conference.
The 26th International Computing and Combinatorics Conference (COCOON 2020) will be held in Atlanta, GA, USA during August 29-31, 2020. 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 Korea University, Seoul, South Korea.
All the papers will be published to the symposium in Springer-Verlag's Lecture Notes in Computer Science. 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
Important Dates (midnight/EST)
Paper Submission Due: May 13, 2020 (firm deadline)
Notification of Acceptance: June 17, 2020
Camera-ready Version: July 3, 2020
Conference Dates: August 29-31, 2020
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. Submission is through the EasyChair conference system. The submission process requires registration to create an EasyChair account prior to submission. Submission page: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cocoon2020.
