[DMANET] DCC '18 special session: Computation over Compressed Data

Dear Colleague,

We are pleased to announce that the next *Data Compression Conference* (DCC
'18) will feature a special session on *Computation over Compressed Data*.
This session extends the special sessions at DCC '14 and '16 on Compact
Data Structures, and we invite you to submit interesting new results you
may have both on *compact data structures* and on *compression-aware
algorithms* (i.e., those that run faster on compressible inputs).

The session will be an opportunity for members of our community to confer
with each other and reinforce our topics' relevance to the wider field of
data compression. If we receive enough suitable papers, we will arrange a
special issue of *Information and Computation* for extended versions of
some of them. Selected papers from the 2014 and 2016 sessions were invited
to special issues of the *Journal of Discrete Algorithms* (published March
2017) and *Algorithmica* (in preparation).

Papers are due by *November 1st*, 2017 (23:59 PST) and the conference will
take place from March 27th to 30th, 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 will be 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,
Travis Gagie and Gonzalo Navarro
(session co-chairs)
