*About the conference*

LAGOS (the Latin-American Algorithms, Graphs, and Optimization Symposium),
is the merging of two Latin-American Conferences on these subjects: GRACO
(Brazilian Symposium on Graphs, Algorithms, and Combinatorics) and LACGA
(Latin-American Conference on Combinatorics, Graphs, and Applications). The
previous editions were held in Fortaleza, Brazil (GRACO 2001
<>), Santiago, Chile (LAGCA 2004
<>), Angra dos Reis, Brazil (GRACO 2005
<>), Puerto Varas, Chile (LAGOS 2007
<>), Gramado, Brazil (LAGOS 2009
<>), Bariloche, Argentina (LAGOS 2011
<>), and Playa del Carmen, Mexico (LAGOS
2013 <>).

*Conference themes*

Themes include, but are not limited to, the following AMS classifications:

*Algorithms:* analysis of algorithms; approximation algorithms; randomized
algorithms; computational geometry.
*Operations Research and Mathematical Programming:* combinatorial
optimization; integer programming; polyhedral combinatorics; operations
research and management science.
*Graph Theory:* cliques, dominating and independent sets; coloring of
graphs and hypergraphs; covering and packing, factorization, matching;
digraphs, tournaments; graph algorithms; graphs and matrices; hypergraphs;
perfect graphs; random graphs; structural characterization of types of
*Applications:* mathematical programming, combinatorial optimization,
continuous optimization, heuristics, and metaheuristics, applied to
real-world problems.

*Instructions for Submissions*

*Extended abstracts.* Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract in
English (up to 6 pages), containing original research results. The authors
are fully responsible of convincing the referees of the correctness and
interest of their results using only those six pages. Authors can add an
optional appendix with proofs, sketches of proofs, or additional material.
If included, the appendix will be read at the discretion of the Scientific
Committee and it is expected that it will only be used to reach a decision
for very unusual cases. The appendix has no page limit, and since it will
not be published, it cannot be referenced in the extended abstract.
Submission of a paper implies that the work described has not been
previously published (except in the form of a short abstract or as part of
a lecture or academic thesis), that it is not simultaneously submitted
elsewhere, and that, if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere in the
same form. A special volume of Electronic Notes in Discrete Mathematics
(ENDM) will be dedicated to accepted extended abstracts. The extended
abstracts must comply with the ENDM LaTeX style and are limited to 6 pages,
including the front matter, text, and references. Instructions for
submission preparation may be obtained in the ENDM web page ( Once prepared, the paper should be
submitted by means of the Easy Chair system (

*Posters.* Submissions of posters on all areas related to the symposium are
also solicited. Posters must also be submitted for review in the form of an
extended abstract formatted in the ENDM style (, and must not exceed 2 pages in
length. Posters should also be submitted via the Easy Chair System ( Accepted posters
will NOT appear in the ENDM special volume, but they will appear in the
symposium's booklet. Posters will be presented at the symposium in a
separate session.

Following the tradition of LAGOS, a special issue of Discrete Applied
Mathematics will be prepared after LAGOS'15. All authors of accepted papers
at the symposium are invited to contribute to this special volume. The
topics should relate to the central themes of the symposium, but are not
necessarily restricted to the presentations at LAGOS'15. All articles will
be refereed according to the standards of Discrete Applied Mathematics.
