[DMANET] LAGOS 2017: Final Call For Papers

Dear scientific committee member,

Please find enclosed with this message the final CFP of Lagos 2017
Symposium. Could you please broadcast it to any scientific community you
think can be interested in the event? We can use the same channels of
communication as in the previous CFP.

Thank you and best regards,

The organizing committee of Lagos 2017

Apologies if you got multiple copies of this email.

About the conference

LAGOS'2017 edition will be special for two reasons: (I) we will celebrate
the 150th anniversary of two of the most influential researchers,
colleagues and friends, Jayme Luiz Szwarcfiter (UFRJ,Brazil) and Thomas
Liebling (EPFL,Switzerland). (II) For this special edition, LAGOS Symposium
will held in France, a Latin Country which has always collaborated with the
development of the science in the Latin American countries. The previous
editions were held in Fortaleza, Brazil (GRACO 2001), Santiago, Chile
(LACGA 2004), Angra dos Reis, Brazil (GRACO 2005), Puerto Varas, Chile
(LAGOS 2007),Gramado, Brazil (LAGOS 2009), Bariloche, Argentina (LAGOS
2011), Playa del Carmen, Mexico (LAGOS 2013), and Fortaleza, Brazil (LAGOS
2015). As in previous editions, the proceedings of the accepted papers will
be published in Electronic Notes in Discrete Mathematics and a special
edition of Discrete Applied Mathematics will be devoted to selected full

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 graphs.

Applications: mathematical programming, combinatorial optimization,
continuous optimization, heuristics, and metaheuristics, applied to
real-world problems.
