                   COCOON'01 CALL FOR PAPERS

The 7th Annual International Computing and Combinatorics Conference
(COCOON'01) will be held in August 20-22, 2001, in Guilin, China.
Original research papers in the areas of theoretical computer science
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.

Typical, but not exclusive, topics of interest include: 
Algorithms and data structures;
Automata, languages, logic, and computability;
Combinatorics related to algorithms and complexity;
Complexity theory;
Computational algebra, biology, geometry, and number theory;
Computational learning theory and knowledge discovery;
Cryptography, reliability and security, and database theory;
Graph drawing and information visualization;
Graph theory, communication networks, and optimization;
Parallel and distributed computing;
Experimental analysis of algorithms.

COCOON'01 will accept only electronic submissions.
For detailed instructions on electronic submissions 
please check,
or send e-mail to cocoon01 at with the subject HELP.

Each submission should start with the title of the paper, the author's 
name, affiliation, and e-mail address, and a short abstract summarizing 
the main results of the paper. This should be followed by a scholarly 
exposition of the ideas, techniques, and a full description of the 
results achieved.  A clear indication of the motivation and comparison 
with prior or related work should be presented. The paper should not 
exceed 10 pages using 11 point or larger font. Submissions that
deviate significantly from these guidelines and PostScript submissions
that are unprintable or formatted for paper size other than 8.5 x 11 
inch paper risk rejection without consideration of their merits.

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 paper of the best scientific merit judged by the program committee. 
The program committee may decline to make the award, or may split it 
among several papers.
