[DMANET] 3rd CFP - VIII Latin-American Workshop on Cliques in Graphs (LAWCG 2018)

LAWCG 2018
VIII Latin-American Workshop on Cliques in Graphs
August 9-11, 2018
Rio de Janeiro-RJ, Brazil

We are very pleased to announce that the 8th Latin American Workshop on Cliques
in Graphs will be held on August 9-11, 2018 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Following the previous workshops at (2002) Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; (2006)
La Plata, Argentina; (2008) Guanajuato, Mexico; (2010) Itaipava, Brazil;
(2012) Buenos Aires, Argentina; (2014) Pirenópolis, Brazil and (2016) La
Plata, Argentina, the workshop is meant to foster interaction between the
Latin American Graph Theory and Combinatorics researchers, whose research
interests include cliques, clique graphs, the behavior of cliques and other
topics in Graph Theory.

The LAWCG 2018 is supported by the Special Committee on Algorithms,
and Optimization (CE-ACO) of the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC).

In 2018, the LAWCG is a satellite event of ICM 2018 (International Congress
of Mathematicians), that will be held in Rio de Janeiro, from August 1st to
9th, 2018. Also in the 2018 edition, the LAWCG joins the commemorations of
the 50th edition of the Brazilian Operational Research Symposium (SBPO),
organized by the Brazilian Society of Operational Research (SOBRAPO), which
is part of ALIO and IFORS.

The official languages are English, Portuguese, and Spanish.

We have four confirmed plenary talks by:

Bojan Mohar (Canada and Slovenia)
Gyula O. H. Katona (Hungary)
Jorge Urrutia (Mexico)
Marisa Gutierrez (Argentina)

Contributed talks covering original work on the conference topics will be
selected for presentation. Prospective authors should submit a 1-page
abstract of their work in .pdf format by email to <>

using the following LaTex format avaiable at

Submissions open on: January 15th 2018
Closing date for submissions: March 31st 2018
Notification of acceptance: May 15th 2018

After the workshop, the proceedings of the workshop will be published
by Matemática
Contemporânea, a journal of the Brazilian Mathematical Society. All
participants of the conference will be invited to submit an extended abstract
(up to 6 pages) describing their contributions. The submitted papers will
go through the normal review process. Please follow the formatting
guidelines of Matemática Contemporânea.

Registration Fees
