                        CALL for PAPERS

               Asian Computing Science Conference
             Phuket, Thailand, December 10-12, 1999

     Conference Web Page:        http://www.comp.nus.edu.sg/~asian99
     Paper submission deadline:  July 12, 1999


The series of annual Asian Computing Science Conferences (ASIAN) was
initiated in 1995 by AIT, INRIA and UNU/IIST to provide a forum for 
researchers in computer science from the Asian region and to promote 
interaction with researchers from other regions.  The first four 
conferences have been held, respectively, in Bangkok, Singapore, 
Katmandu and Manila. In addition to support from the host countries, 
they have also been sponsored by INRIA, France, UNU/IIST, Macau and 
NUS, Singapore.  The proceedings have been published as Lecture Notes 
in Computer Science, Springer-Verlag.


The scope of the conferences has been a broad coverage of Computer Science,
but with a focus on a few chosen specific themes concerning the formal 
aspects of algorithms, programming, concurrency and parallelism, networking 
and security.  The 1999 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:

  * Embedded and Real-Time Systems

  * Formal Reasoning and Verification

  * Distributed and Mobile Computing


The  keynote  speaker at ASIAN'99 will be Amir Pnueli (Weizmann Institute, 
Israel).  The invited speakers are: Nicolas Halbwachs (VERIMAG, CNRS, France)
and Krishna Palem (Courant Institute, New York University, USA).


We invite submissions on original research not published or submitted for
publication elsewhere.  Submission procedure is described below.

The proceedings are to be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS
series.  Plans are also being made to publish a special issue, in an
international journal, of papers selected from ASIAN'99.  In addition to
regular papers, we hope to accept posters, which will appear as two-page
abstracts in the proceedings.  Papers and posters must be presented at the
conference by one of the authors.

In conjunction with ASIAN99, the 11th Asian School on Computer Science
will be held from December 13-15, 1999, in Phuket, Thailand.
The school will offer an intensive course entitled:
         Automata, Circuit Design and Verification.

The course which will be taught by Jean Vuillemin (Ecole Normale 
Superieure), Gerard Berry (Ecole des Mines de Paris & INRIA) and 
Nicolas Halbwachs (Verimag, CNRS).  For more details, see the URL below:
