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:
