The 27th International Computing and Combinatorics Conference

Call for Papers

Welcome to COCOON 2021!

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.

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

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.
