Extended abstracts. Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract in English (up to 6 pages), containing original research results. The authors are fully responsible of convincing the referees of the correctness and interest of their results using only those six pages. Authors can add an optional appendix with proofs, sketches of proofs, or additional material. If included, the appendix will be read at the discretion of the Scientific Committee and it is expected that it will only be used to reach a decision for very unusual cases. The appendix has no page limit, and since it will not be published, it cannot be referenced in the extended abstract. 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of a lecture or academic thesis), that it is not simultaneously submitted elsewhere, and that, if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere in the same form. A special volume of Electronic Notes in Discrete Mathematics (ENDM) will be dedicated to accepted extended abstracts. The extended abstracts must comply with the ENDM LaTeX style and are limited to 6 pages, including the front matter, text, and references. Instructions for submission preparation may be obtained in the ENDM web page or directly in this link. Once prepared, the paper should be submitted by means of the Easy Chair system (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lagos2017).
Following the tradition of LAGOS, a special issue of Discrete Applied Mathematics will be prepared after LAGOS'17. 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'17. All articles will be refereed according to the standards of Discrete Applied Mathematics.
