Conference and Graph Theory Day - (June 10): 08-10 June 2017.


Graph Theory can be used to model communication networks, data organization, computational devices and the flow of computation. Further, problems arising in social media, travel, biology, chemistry, computer chip design, and many other fields can also be handled by graph theoretic approach. The development of algorithms to handle graphs is therefore a major interest in computer science. Combinatorial problems arise in many areas of pure mathematics, notably in algebra, probability theory, topology and geometry. It also has many applications in mathematical optimization, computer science, ergodic theory and statistical physics. The combination of Graph theory and Combinatorics play a vital role in many real time problems. The purpose of this conference is to bring together experts and young researchers and provide platform for discussions on recent advances in the relevant research areas through invited talks and research paper presentation. The academic program of the conference will consist of  endowment lectures, invited talks and paper/poster presentations. This year, apart from endowment lectures and invited talks, it is planned to organize symposium on each day in specific topics like domination theory, coding theory and spectral graph theory. Invited talks on these topics will be delivered by the experts during each symposium.

Conference Proceedings:

The Conference Proceedings will consist of refereed versions of invited talks and papers presented (oral or poster) at the conference. It is proposed to publish the Proceedings in the Indian Journal of Discrete Mathematics. The content of each paper should not exceed 15 pages on A4 size papers in 11 point font size LaTeX/PDF format. 

Pre-Conference Workshop on Graph Algorithms: 05- 07 June, 2017

Theme of the School:

Graph theoretic concepts and algorithms play a vital role in many fields of application such as communication network design, VLSI-design, CAD, traffic optimization or network visualization. Beside the design and analysis of algorithms to solve fundamental graph problems, the application of those methods to real world problems is an interesting task for researchers in algorithmic graph theory.  The purpose of this school is to bring experts and young researchers together and provide a platform for discussion on recent advances in the relevant research areas. In-depth discussion on the front-line challenging problems on various topics, invited talks by experts in the field and informal interactive sessions in the evening will provide opportunities for young researchers to interact with the experts in the field.

Major Topics:

Introduction to Algorithms and NP-completeness
Polynomial time Algorithms for special classes of graphs
Approximation Algorithms
Parameterized Algorithms
Dynamic graph Algorithms
Randomized Algorithm
