[DMANET] 5th Combinatorial Reconfiguration Workshop -- Call for Presentations

The 5th Combinatorial Reconfiguration Workshop

October 7-11, 2024
Nishijin Plaza, Kyushu University, Japan

Submission deadline: July 7, 23:59 (AoE)

* Aim and Scope
Combinatorial Reconfiguration studies reachability and related questions
over combinatorial structures. (See, e.g., a survey at ) These types of questions arise in
many areas of computer science, mathematics, and related fields. In
addition to presenting the latest research findings related to
combinatorial reconfiguration, a major feature of this workshop is to
allocate ample time for participants to engage in working sessions
tackling open problems. Our previous workshops have each resulted in new
collaborations, many stemming from open problem sessions during which
researchers have a chance to meet and work together for the first time.

* Call for Presentations
We are seeking participants interested in presenting in one or more of
the following types of sessions:
- Contributed talks
- Mentoring sessions
- Open problem sessions

All topics relating to any aspect or application of combinatorial
reconfiguration are welcome, including both published and unpublished
work. Presentations of ongoing work and open problems are encouraged.

Mentoring sessions are designed for newcomers to the area to obtain
feedback from more senior members in the community, including on work in

Open problem sessions will be used as the starting point for working
sessions during the workshop, allowing for new collaborations to be
formed. We will accommodate new open problem presentations suggested
during the workshop if time permits; submitting open problems by the
submission deadline will ensure a reserved time slot.

Please feel free to propose more than one type of presentation. For each
proposed presentation, please provide a title and a single paragraph
explaining what will be discussed, via the Google form below. If you are
submitting more than one proposal, use the Google form once for each
proposal. There will be no formal refereeing process; however, the
Program Committee reserves the right to reject contributions that are
substantially off-topic.

We anticipate that the length of presentations will be approximately
20-30 minutes (or less at the request of the presenter); however, exact
times will be determined only when we know how many presentations have
been accepted.
