[DMANET] COCOON 2021 Call For Papers

The 27th International Computing and Combinatorics Conference
October 24--26, 2021, National Cheng Kung University, Tainan, Taiwan

The 27th International Computing and Combinatorics Conference
(COCOON 2021) will be held in National Cheng Kung University, Tainan, Taiwan during October 24-26, 2021.
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
also 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 venue of the conference will be National Cheng Kung University.

All the papers will be published to the symposium in Springer-Verlag's
Lecture Notes in Computer Science.
Papers of high quality will be invited to special issues of
Algorithmica, Theoretical Computer Science (TCS), Journal of Combinatorial
Optimization (JOCO),
and International Journal of Computer Mathematics: Computer Systems Theory
(IJCM:CST), respectively.

The topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:
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

Important dates:
Paper Submission Due: June 30, 2021
Notification of Acceptance: August 15, 2021
Camera-ready and Registration: August 31, 2021
Conference Dates: October 24-26, 2021

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 discretion. Papers that deviate from
these guidelines risk
being rejected without consideration of their merits. Submission is through
the EasyChair conference system.
The submission process requires registration to create an EasyChair account
prior to submission.
