About the Conference

The Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India has declared 10th June of each year as Graph Theory Day and has been providing financial support to organize a major Conference/Workshop in Discrete Mathematics around this date. The Academy of Discrete Mathematics and Applications (ADMA), and Siddaganga Institute of Technology (S.I.T), Tumkur are jointly organizing the Fourth International Conference on Discrete Mathematics (ICDM-2016) in S.I.T Campus as part of its 12th Annual Conference (9-11 June 2016). A Pre-Conference Instructional Workshop on Recent Advances in Signed Graphs and their Applications (6-8 June 2016) will also be held at the same venue.  

Combinatorics and Graph Theory are closely related to major thrust areas of current research in Discrete Mathematics with tremendous potential for applications in various fields such as Computer Science, Sociology, Psychology, Chemistry, Physics, Economics and several other real life problems. A lot of research is going on in various institutions all over the world in the related areas such as Combinatorial Optimization, Graph Theory, Parallel Computation, Interconnection Networks, Matroids Theory, Algorithms, Coding Theory, Cryptography etc.

The purpose of this conference is to bring together experts and young researchers and provide platform for discussions on recent advances in the relevant research areas through the invited talks and research paper presentation.

The academic program of the conference will consist of plenary talks, Special Invited Talks, invited Talks and paper/poster presentations. Each participant will be given a copy of the lecture notes along with the conference kit. The lectures may be either comprehensive surveys or talks based on original research.
