COCOON 2012: 1st call for papers


The 18th Annual International Computing and Combinatorics Conference
20-22 August 2012, Sydney, Australia.

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 interested in submissions
that report on experimental and applied research of general algorithmic
interest. The conference proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag
in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Typical, but not exclusive,
topics of interest include:
- Algorithms and Data Structures
- Algorithmic Game Theory
- Approximation and online algorithms
- Automata, Languages, Logic, and Computability
- Combinatorics Related to Algorithms and Complexity
- Complexity Theory
- Computational Learning Theory and Knowledge Discovery
- Cryptography, Reliability and Security, and Database Theory
- Computational Biology and Bioinformatics
- Computational Algebra, Geometry, and Topology
- Graph Drawing and Information Visualization
- Graph Theory, Communication Networks, and Optimization
- Parallel and Distributed Computing

Paper Submission
Contributors are invited to submit a full paper with a maximum of 12 pages
in the Springer LNCS format including title, abstract and references. An
appendix, beyond the 12 pages, may be added and may be read at the reviewers'
discretion. Please format your paper in the Springer Lecture Notes style
according to the LNCS Author Instructions. Submitted papers must describe work not
previously published. They must not be submitted simultaneously to another conference with
refereed proceedings or to a journal. Only electronic submission (pdf) will be allowed.

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer
Science (LNCS) series. After the conference, selected papers will be published in special issues.

A best paper award and a best student paper award will be given. A paper is eligible for the best
student paper award if all authors are full-time students at the time of submission.

Student grants
There will be a number of student travel awards consisting in free registration. These awards will
be granted on the merits of the applicants. Priority will be given to students presenting a paper
at the meeting.

JoCG indexed

JoCG is now included the Directory of Open Access Journals and MathSciNet (thanks to David Wood).

Which other organisations should we aim to get it indexed by?

Thore on theory on TV

I just spent the last 22:06 minutes watching a great little film with Thore Husfeldt where he talks about algorithms, in particular Google’s PageRank.

Thore wrote a post about the work that you can find here.

Unfortunately it's only available in Danish (a dialect of Swedish).
