2018-01-25: WGSCO2018 - Workshop on Graph Spectra, Combinatorics and Optimization

Call for Papers

It is our pleasure to announce the WGSCO2018 - Workshop on Graph Spectra, Combinatorics and Optimization, on the occasion of 65th birthday of Prof. Domingos M. Cardoso to be held at the University of Aveiro, Aveiro, Portugal, from January 25 to January 27, 2018.


The website is under construction but can already be seen here:   http://wgsco2018.web.ua.pt 


Topics of the workshop:

The main topics are the Theory of Graph Spectra, Combinatorics and Optimization, but related topics like Algebraic Combinatorics, Algebraic Graph Theory, Algorithms and Computing Techniques, Combinatorial Optimization, Communications and Control Theory,  Enumerative Combinatorics, Extremal Combinatorics, Graph Theory, Optimization in Graphs, Graph Spectra and applications, Linear Optimization, Networks, Nonlinear Optimization, are also welcome.

Special issue

A special issue of Discrete Applied Mathematics (DAM) with full-length papers will be dedicated to the WGSCO2018. We invite the participants of the Workshop to submit their papers to the Special Issue. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper should be registered as a participant of the conference. All papers will be reviewed in accordance to the high standards of Discrete Applied Mathematics.

The call for papers (can be found here)  and Special Session Proposal is open and your participation is very welcome!


Optimization  A Journal of Mathematical Programming and Operations Research




Special Issue "WGSCO2018 - Workshop on Graph Spectra, Combinatorics and Optimization"



The editors plan to publish a special issue dedicated to the workshop on Graph Spectra, Combinatorics and Optimization, to be held at the University of Aveiro, Portugal, from January 25 to 27, 2018.

The call-for-papers addresses the growing research interest in Spectral Graph Theory, Combinatorics and Optimization, and other related areas.


The journal "Optimization" is abstracted and indexed in: Mathematical Reviews/MathSciNet; Science Citation Index Expanded; Zentralblatt MATH/Mathematics Abstracts and Zetoc. Astrophysics Data System; SciBase; British Library Inside; Cambridge Scientific Abstracts; EBSCO Databases; ISI Current Contents - Physical, Chemical and Earth Sciences; New Journal.


Submitted papers will be considered as potential full-paper publications in this special issue subject to peer reviews, and should not have been previously published nor be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. All submissions will be refereed with the same standards as leading international journals. The main criteria for acceptance are the quality and originality of the contribution.

Prospective authors should follow the manuscript format described below at the journal site www.tandf.co.uk/journals/journal.asp?issn=0233-1934&linktype=44


Authors have to submit their papers through the Manuscript Central web site http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/gopt


During the submission procedure authors have to answer the question

'Is the manuscript a candidate for a special issue?'  Here one has to tick 'yes'

and then in the box
'If yes, what is the title of the special issue:' one has to write ‘WGSCO2018'.

Then corresponding manuscripts can be quickly identified and assigned to the guest editors (Associate Editors) who are processing these manuscripts.


Important Dates


Submission deadline for papers: March 31, 2018

Tentative date of publication: January – March 2019
