Cologne Twente Workshop 2018
Paris, France
June 18 - 20, 2018

The Cologne-Twente Workshop on Graphs and Combinatorial Optimization 2018 welcomes contributions on theory and applications of discrete algorithms, graphs and combinatorial optimization in the wider sense.

The series of Cologne Twente Workshops on Graphs and Combinatorial Optimization started with meetings organized every two years by the universities of Cologne and Twente. The organizational base was later expanded by other universities. Since 2003 the workshop is held (almost) every year.

CTWs are especially intended to let doctoral students and young researchers present the results of their research activities in an a friendly and highly interactive atmosphere. The number of parallel sessions is limited to two and each talk is allotted half an hour.

As is customary for CTW, the workshop will be held over three days (June 18-20 2018). The workshop will start at 8:30AM on June 18th (the registration desk will be open from 8:00AM), and end at 6:00PM on June 20th.

The program of the workshop is available in PDF here; you can also take a look at the proceedings. For more information about the schedule of the workshop, go to the program page.

CTW18 welcomes contributions on theory and applications of discrete optimization algorithms, graphs and combinatorial structures in a wide sense. Following a well established tradition, the 16th edition of the workshop aims to disseminate scientific results, especially by doctoral students and young researchers, in a friendly and interactive atmosphere.
