The 20th International Computing and Combinatorics Conference (COCOON'14) will be held in the city of Atlanta, Georgia, USA, during August 4-6, 2014. 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 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.
All the papers will be published to the symposium in Springer-Verlag's Lecture Notes.
Papers of high quality will be invited to special issues of Algorithmica, Theoretical Computer Science (TCS), and Journal of Combinatorial Optimization (JOCO), respectively.
The program topics include but not limited to:
Algorithms and Data Structures
Algorithmic Game Theory
Approximation Algorithms and Online Algorithms
Automata, Languages, Logic, and Computability
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
Submission Deadline: February 15, 2014
Notification of acceptance: April 5, 2014
Camera Ready: April 25, 2014
Conference Dates: August 4-6, 2014
Workshop on Computational Social Networks(CSoNet'14) will be held at the occasion of COCOON 2014 at the same location.
