Call for Papers
COCOON 2013:
19th Annual International Computing and Combinatorics Conference
June 21 - 23, 2013 Hangzhou, China
The 19th Annual International Computing and Combinatorics Conference
(COCOON'13) will be held in the city of Hangzhou, China, during June
21 - 23, 2013.

Important Dates
• Submission Deadline: Jan 6, 2013
• Notification of Acceptance: March 1, 2013
• Camera-Ready Deadline: March 21, 2013

The conference organizers would like to extend their most cordial
invitation to researchers around the world to come to one of the most
beautiful cities in China, to exchange their most significant research

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.

The program topics include but not limited to:
• Algorithms and Data Structures
• Algorithmic Game Theory
• Approximation Algorithms and Online Algorithms
• Automata, Languages, Logic, and Computability
• Complexity Theory
• Computational Learning Theory and Knowledge Discovery
• Cryptography, Reliability and Security, and Database Theory
• Computational Biology and Bioinformatics
• Computational Algebra, Geometry, and Number Theory
• Graph Drawing and Information Visualization
• Graph Theory, Communication Networks, and Optimization
• Parallel and Distributed Computing

Submission instructions
Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract of original
research on computing and combinatorics. Submissions must contain 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 related work should be presented. Simultaneous
submission to a journal or another conference with refereed
proceedings is not allowed.

Submissions must adhere to the following guidelines:
• Papers must be formatted using the LNCS style file without altering
margins or the font point.
• The maximum length of the paper (including references, but excluding
the optional appendix) is 12 pages.
• Proofs omitted due to space constraints must be placed in an
appendix to be read by the program committee members at their

Papers should be submitted electronically via the Springer online
conference system (to be announced later). The submission deadline is
Jan 6, 2013 (Anywhere on Earth).
