[DMANET] Compressed Data Structures session at DCC 2016

Dear Colleague,

The deadline for the 2016 *Data Compression Conference* (DCC) is now less
than a month away. We remind you that the conference will include a
special session on *Compressed Data Structures*, and encourage you to
submit new results you may have on this topic.

The session will be an opportunity for members of our community to confer
with each other and reinforce our topic's relevance to the wider field of
data compression. If we receive sufficiently many high-quality papers, we
will try to arrange a special issue in an appropriate journal for
substantially extended versions of papers from the session.

Papers are due by *November 2nd*, 2015 (23:59 PST) and the conference will
take place from March 29th to April 1st, 2016, in Snowbird, Utah (a premier
ski resort in the Rocky Mountains). The DCC submission process (see will allow authors to direct
their papers to the special session, but submissions are otherwise handled
in the same way, will be subject to the same review process and, if
accepted, will be included in the same proceedings.

Best regards,
Gonzalo Navarro and Travis Gagie
(session co-chairs)

PS There will also be a special session on Genome Compression, which may be
of interest to our community.
