About the Conference

Combinatorics and Graph Theory are closely related major thrust areas of current research with tremendous potential for application in various fields. Graph Theory is considered to be a part of Pure Mathematics, which is very close to Theoretical Computer Science and its importance has assumed greater dimensions in recent years in view of its adaptability to various problems in diverse areas such as Sociology, Psychology, Chemistry, Physics, Engineering, Economics, Computer Science and several other real life problems.

Research Areas which are related to the topics of the Conference include various aspects of Graph Theory, Combinatorial optimization, Interconnection Networks and Parallel Computing, Design and Analysis of Algorithms, Matroid Theory, Coding Theory, Cryptography and Applications to Science and Engineering.

The purpose of this conference is to bring together the experts and the young researchers and provide a platform for discussion of recent advances in the relevant research areas and presentation of research papers by young scientists. We hope to have in-depth discussion on the front-line challenging problems on various topics. It is hoped that these in-depth discussions and lectures by the invited speakers will motivate the young researchers to enter into some of the highly fertile research areas in Combinatorics and Graph Theory.

We also propose to have a symposium on graph colorings and another symposium on coding theory.

About the University

B.S. Abdur Rahman Crescent Engineering College, which was established in the year 1984 by the Founder Chancellor Alhaj Dr. B.S. Abdur Rahman,
has now been upgraded as B.S. Abdur Rahman University.
