[Apologies if you got multiple copies of this email.]

Dear Colleagues,

SIAM CSC20 provides a top-tier forum for presenting original research on
the design, implementation, application, and evaluation of combinatorial
algorithms and data structures that arise from problems in computational
science, computational engineering, and data science.  The conference
will be held February 11-13, 2020, Seattle, Washington, U.S.
It will be co-located with SIAM PP20 conference, February 12-15, 2020.

Research in CSC involves identifying a scientific computing problem arising
in a relevant application area, representing this problem using a
combinatorial or graph model, describing the corresponding graph problem,
finding an algorithmic approach to its solution, and carrying out a
theoretical and/or experimental analysis of the approach.
Contributions involving any aspect of this workflow are welcome.

Authors are invited to submit both full papers and extended abstracts.
All submissions must present original unpublished research. Full papers
may be up to 10 pages in length. The accepted full papers will be included
in the proceedings published by SIAM (the same publishing platform is
used by SODA, ALENEX, ANALCO, etc.). The proceedings of the previous workshop,
CSC18, are at  https://epubs.siam.org/doi/book/10.1137/1.9781611975215.
Short abstracts could be up to 2 pages in length and should describe
preliminary results for presentation as talks at the workshop,
but these abstracts will not be included in the proceedings.
Submissions should use the LaTeX macros at
(authors using other software should adhere to the same
 double-column 11pt format).

Additionally poster presentations are also welcome, and abstracts for
these will be solicited at a future date.

As in the past, CSC20 will award a prize for the best proceedings paper.

We invite papers in all areas of Combinatorial Scientific Computing,
including (but not limited to):

* Combinatorial (discrete) models in scientific computing
* Graph and hypergraph algorithms in scientific computing
* Sparse matrix computations
* Combinatorial problems in data science and network science
* Combinatorial problems in Algorithmic Differentiation
* Applications of combinatorial scientific computing
* Randomized matrix computations
* Streaming algorithms for combinatorial and numerical problems
* Combinatorial problems in analyzing data stemming from scientific computations
* Numerical methods for solving combinatorial problems
* Analysis of large complex graphs
* Statistical and machine learning methods for solving combinatorial problems.
* The interaction between algorithms in these areas and modern computing
  platforms, including challenges arising from memory hierarchies,
  novel memory technologies, and parallelism ranging from instruction-level
  and multi-core all the way to clouds and exascale.

The record of the earlier CSC Workshops is available at www.csc-research.org.
