This book constitutes the proceedings of the Second Annual International Conference on Computing and Combinatorics, COCOON '96, held in June 1996 in Hong Kong.
The 44 papers presented in the book in revised version were carefully selected from a total of 82 submissions. They describe state-of-the-art research results from various areas of theoretical computer science, combinatorics related to computing, and experimental analysis of algorithms; computational graph theory, computational geometry, and networking issues are particularly well-presented.
