Call for papers

Special issue of Discrete Applied Mathematics on Graph Classes, Optimization, and Width Parameters

We would like to invite all to submit a paper for publication in the special issue of Discrete Applied Mathematics dedicated to the topics of the recent workshop held in Bergen on October 14-17, 2009: GROW 2009 - Graph Classes, Optimization, and Width Parameters.

The workshop was the most recent in the series initiated eight years ago in Barcelona (Bellaterra) and continued in Prague in 2005 and in Eugene in 2007. The first three meetings resulted in publication of special issues DAM 145(2), DAM 157(12), and DAM 158(7).

The authorship of papers submitted to this special issue is not limited to the participants of the Bergen workshop. We hope to include other recent results in these research areas, as well. As it was the case of the previous issues, all submissions will be duly refereed with the usual high standards.

The (extended) submission deadline is April 1, 2010.

Please submit your paper through the Elsevier Editorial System.
