Authors are invited to submit papers (extended abstracts) describing original research of theoretical or practical significance to algorithms and computation. Papers should not exceed 12 pages for long papers and 6 pages for short papers in LNCS style. Papers must be labeled as either long or short and prepared using LaTex / LaTex2e. If the authors feel that more details are essential to substantiate the main claim of the paper, they may include a clearly marked appendix that will be read at the discretion of the program committee. Only electronic submission will be allowed. Submitted papers must describe work not previously published. They must not be submitted simultaneously to another conference with refereed proceedings or to a journal.



Accepted submissions will be published in the conference proceedings, which will be included in the Springer-Verlag series Lecture Notes in Computer Science.



The workshop will be held in Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), Dhaka. The workshop will be organized by Bangladesh Academy of Sciences and Department of Computer Science and Engineering, BUET.
