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
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.
