[DMANET] COCOA 2016 Call for Papers

Call for Papers

The 10th Annual International Conference on Combinatorial Optimization and
Applications (COCOA 2016) will be held during December 16-18, 2016 in Hong
Kong SAR, CHINA. Original research papers in the areas of combinatorial
optimization and its applications 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 topics include, but are not limited to:

The topics include, but are not limited to:

Important Dates

Abstract Submission Due: July 15, 2016 by 11:59:59 PM (anywhere on earth)
Notification of Acceptance: September 1, 2016
Final Version Submission: September 13, 2016
Paper Submission

The submission should contain scholarly exposition of ideas, techniques,
and results, including the motivation and a clear comparison with related
work. The length of the submission should not exceed fifteen pages in LNCS
style. Submitted papers must describe work not previously published. They
must not be submitted simultaneously to any other conference with refereed
proceedings or to journals. We regard the following case as a simultaneous
submission. Submission of drafts which contain essentially the same results
from papers under review in other conferences or journals at the moment of
the submission. Only electronic submission will be allowed via the Springer
Online Conference System.

The submission server is now available at

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the
Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. After the conference, selected
papers will be published in special issues of journals: *Algorithmica,
Theoretical Computer Science, Journal of Combinatorial Optimization*.

The Best Paper and the Best Student Paper will be awarded. A paper is
eligible for the Best Student Paper if all authors are full-time students
at the time of submission. To indicate that a submission is eligible,
please add the phrase "Eligible for best student paper" as the last
sentence in the "Abstract" field in the web form on the submission server.
