COCOON'2OOO --- Preliminary Call for Papers ---
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. 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
send a PostScript file of a paper (in English) to cocoon2000 at cse.unsw.edu.au by February 8,
2000. A submission guideline will be given on our home page:
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 cse.unsw.edu.au
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 will be given on our home page). We also introduce an award for the best paper from a
young researcher (at most 3 years since PhD).
