As part of their recent cooperation agreement DIMACS and the Theoretical Computer Science Group at HKUST are co-sponsoring a workshop from December 18-20, 1998 at HKUST. The goal of this workshop is to foster greater communication and collaboration between DIMACS and algorithm researchers in Asia. Its focus will be on algorithms, combinatorics and the interplay between them.
Two types of talks are planned; extended surveys by eight distinguished invited speakers and shorter presentations by the attendees describing their current research. In addition, there will be open problem sessions.
The workshop is deliberately planned in such a way that participants can combine it with ISAAC'98 in Korea.
Workshop information is also available from DIMACS.
