LAGOS'09 - V Latin-American Algorithms, Graphs and Optimization Symposium

Gramado (Rio Grande do Sul), Brazil
November 3-7, 2009

Deadline extended to May 17, 2009

About the Symposium
LAGOS - Latin-American Algorithms, Graphs and Optimization Symposium, is the union of two Latin American Conferences on these subjects: the GRACO (Brazilian Symposium on Graphs, Algorithms and Combinatorics) and the LACGA (Latin American Conference on Combinatorics, Graphs and Applications). The first GRACO was held in Fortaleza, Brazil, in 2001, and the second GRACO was in Angra dos Reis, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2005. The LACGA was held in Santiago, Chile, in 2004. The first unified LAGOS (IV LAGOS) was held in Puerto Varas, Chile, 2007. The format of these meetings was similar. The proceedings of the accepted papers were published in Electronic Notes in Discrete Mathematics: Volume 7, for the first GRACO, Volume 19 for the second GRACO, Volume 18 for LAGCA, and Volume 30 for the IV LAGOS. Besides, special editions of Discrete Applied Mathematics were dedicated to these events: Volume 141 for the first GRACO, Volume 154 (13) for LACGA, and Volume 156 (7) for the second GRACO. The publication relative to the IV LAGOS is due to appear soon.

Conference themes
Papers presenting new and original research on the following (and related) topics are sought:
-algorithms and data structures
-analysis of algorithms
-approximation algorithms
-combinatorial optimization
-computational biology
-enumerative combinatorics
-graph theory
-mathematical programming
-operations research
-order theory
-polyhedral combinatorics
-randomized algorithms

Important Dates
April 30, 2009: submission deadline
July 31, 2009: notification of acceptance
August 3, 2009: registration beginning
September 4, 2009: final version for publication in ENDM
November 3-7, 2009: LAGOS'09

Authors should submit electronically an extended abstract (not a full paper), written in good English. The submission page is not open yet. The submission should contain a scholarly exposition of ideas, techniques, and results, including motivation and a clear comparison with related work. The length should not exceed six (6) pages (including the bibliography and figures), using the ENDM style package. Additional material (such as a technical report containing detailed proofs) may be placed in a web page, referenced inside the text. However, any material other than the 6-page extended abstract may be ignored at the discretion of the Program Committee. Abstracts deviating significantly from these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. 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.

Accepted papers
Papers accepted for presentation at LAGOS'09 will be published in a special issue of ENDM - Electronic Notes in Discrete Mathematics. Following the tradition of LAGOS, a special issue of Discrete Applied Mathematics will be prepared after the LAGOS'09. 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'09. All articles will be refereed according to the standards of Discrete Applied Mathematics.
