Sixth Annual International Computing and Combinatorics Conference

July 26-28, 2000, Bondi Beach , Sydney , Australia 

The Sixth Annual International Computing and Combinatorics Conference,
COCOON'2000, will be held in Bondi Beach , Sydney , Australia July 26--28,
2000 (a few weeks before the XXVII Olympics, September 15 -- October 1).
The conference aims to provide a forum for researchers in theoretical
computer science. The conference will be followed by the 11th Australasian
Workshop on Combinatorial Algorithms (AWAOCA). Original research papers
in the areas of algorithms, theory of computation, computational complexity,
and combinatorics related to computing are solicited. In additional to
theoretical results, submissions that report substantial results in 
experimental and applied research are encouraged. Typical, but not
exclusive, topics of interest include: 
	* algorithms and data structures 
	* automata, languages and logic 
	* combinatorics related to algorithms and complexity 
	* complexity theory 
	* computational algebra, biology, geometry, and number theory 
	* computational learning theory and knowledge discovery 
	* cryptography and database theory 
	* graph drawing and information visualization 
	* graph theory, communication networks, and optimization 
	* parallel and distributed computing 
Submissions to the conference this year will again be conducted
electronically. Authors should follow the submission guidelines
and send a PostScript file of a paper (in English) by February 8, 
2000. The submission guidelines are in

Our home page is:

Alternatively, authors unable to access e-mail may send 6 hard copies
of their papers to: 
	Xuemin Lin - COCOON'2000 
	School of Computer Science and Engineering 
	University of New South Wales 
	Sydney, NSW 2052, Australia. 
	e-mail: lxue at
A paper should start with the title of the paper, each author's name,
affiliation, e-mail address, and a short summary of the main results.
The paper should provide sufficient detail to allow the Program
Committee to evaluate its validity, quality, and relevance to the
conference. The length of the paper should not exceed 10 pages
(using 11 point or larger font, with ample margins all around).
If necessary, authors may include a clearly marked appendix that 
will be read at the discretion of the Program Committee.
An abstract of the paper must be submitted electronically by 
February 1, 2000. 
Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection by March 30, 2000.
A camera-ready copy of each accepted paper will be required by
April 26, 2000. The proceedings of the conference will 
be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science
series, and will be available for distribution at the conference. 
The Hao Wang award will be given to the best paper (details given on
our home page). We also introduce an award for the best paper from a 
young researcher (at most 3 years since PhD).
