                 DIMACS-HKUST Far-East Workshop on 
                     Algorithms and Combinatorics

As part of their recent cooperation agreement, DIMACS and the 
Theoretical Computer Science Center at the Hong Kong University of
Science and Technology  are co-sponsoring a workshop from December 
18-20, 1998 at HKUST. The goal of this workshop is to foster greater
communication and collaboration between DIMACS and algorithm researchers 
in Asia. Its focus will be on algorithms, combinatorics and the interplay 
between them. 

Two types of talks are planned; extended surveys by seven distinguished 
invited speakers and shorter presentations by the attendees describing 
their current research. In addition, there will be open problem sessions. 

The workshop is deliberately planned in such a way that participants 
can combine it with ISAAC'98 in Korea.
