The 7th Annual International Computing and Combinatorics Conference

August 20-23, 2001, Guilin, China

Call for Papers

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 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:


COCOON 2001 will accept only electronic submissions. For detailed instructions on electronic submissions, please check, or send e-mail to with the subject HELP.

A PostScript file of submission must be received by February 19, 2001. 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.

Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection by April 9, 2001. A camera-ready copy of each accepted paper is required by May 7, 2001. 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. Selected papers will be published in a special issue of the journal Theoretical Computer Science. The Hao Wang Award will be given to a paper selected by the program committee. The program committee may decline to make the award, or may split it among several papers.
