Asian Computing Science Conference

Hotel Yak & Yeti, Kathmandu, Nepal

December 9-12, 1997


The third Asian Computing Science Conferences, ASIAN'97, will be held in Kathmandu on December 9-12, 1997 at the Hotel Yak & Yeti.

The series of annual Asian Computing Science Conferences (ASIAN for short) was started in 1995 to provide a forum for researchers in computer science from the Asian region and to promote interaction with researchers from other regions.

The first conference was held in Bangkok, organized by the Asian Institute of Technology. The second conference, ASIAN'96, was held in Singapore, organized by National University of Singapore. Both were held in partnership with INRIA, France, and the UNU/IIST, Macau. The proceedings were published as Lecture Notes in Computer Science 1023 and 1179 from Springer-Verlag. Their scope was a broad coverage of Computer Science, though there was a focus on the more conceptual areas of algorithms, programming, concurrency and parallelism, networking and security.

The 1997 conference will continue to emphasize the conceptual areas of Computer Science, though papers in all areas will be considered. The following themes represent the areas of focus for this year:

Of the 94 papers submitted, the Program Committee has selected 24 regular papers and 10 poster papers. The conference will have Prof. Michael Rabin (Harvard University and Hebrew University of Jerusalem) as the keynote speaker, and Dr. Nicholas Ayache (INRIA, Sophia Antipolis) and Prof. Randy Bryant (CMU, Pittsburgh) as invited speakers.
