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 papers.

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.
