The XI Latin and American Algorithms, Graphs and Optimization Symposium May 17 to 21, 2021 --- Sao Paulo, Brazilhttp://eventos.ufabc.edu.br/lagos2021/
LAGOS'2021 will be held in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The previous editions were held in Fortaleza, Brazil (GRACO 2001), Santiago, Chile (LACGA 2004), Angra dos Reis, Brazil (GRACO 2005), Puerto Varas, Chile (LAGOS 2007), Gramado, Brazil (LAGOS 2009), Bariloche, Argentina (LAGOS 2011), Playa del Carmen, Mexico (LAGOS 2013), Fortaleza, Brazil (LAGOS 2015), Marseille, France (LAGOS 2017) and Belo Horizonte, Brazil (LAGOS 2019). As in previous editions, the conference proceedings will be published in a selected journal, Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science, and a special edition of Discrete Applied Mathematics will be devoted to selected full papers after the conference.
This year's edition will be very special because we will celebrate the 70th anniversary of our beloved Yoshiko Wakabayashi.
LAGOS conference themes include, but are not limited to:
Algorithms and complexity: algorithms and computational complexity; approximation algorithms; randomized algorithms; computational geometry; parameterized complexity.
Operations Research and Mathematical Programming: combinatorial optimization; integer programming; polyhedral combinatorics; operations research and management science.
Graph Theory: cliques, dominating and independent sets; colorings; covering and packing, factorization, matching; digraphs, tournaments; graph algorithms; graphs and matrices; hypergraphs; perfect graphs; random graphs; structural characterization of graph classes.
Applications to real-world problems: mathematical programming, combinatorial optimization, continuous optimization, heuristics, and metaheuristics.

Preliminary Submission: November 25, 2020
Final Submission: November 29, 2020
Notification: February 15, 2021
Camera Ready: March 15, 2021
Conference: May 17 to 21, 2021
All deadlines are AOE timezone.
All authors interested in participating in LAGOS 2021 must submit a preliminary version of the paper until November 25, 2020.
This version must contain a good presentation of problems investigated, main results obtained and approaches used.
The paper can be updated until November 29, 2020.
The acceptance or rejection of the paper will be based on the last version that was submitted.
As in the last edition, the proceedings of LAGOS 2021 will be published by Elsevier in the ENTCS - Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science series.
Authors are invited to submit original contributions in English with eight (8) single-column letter-size pages in the Elsevier ENTCS format. The submissions are expected to be fully self-contained. In the case that the 8-page format is insufficient for the whole submission, authors are encouraged to place some of the material in an optional appendix. This appendix will not be published in the proceedings and hence should not be referenced within the body of the 8-page paper, but it will be used to evaluate the submission.
Simultaneous submission of papers to any other conference with published proceedings, as well as the submission of previously published papers, is not allowed. Instructions for electronic submissions will be posted at the conference web site. At least one author of each accepted papers must register for the conference to be included in the program.
The submission process must be completed electronically through EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lagos2021).
For more information, please check the LAGOS 2021 website at http://eventos.ufabc.edu.br/lagos2021/.
Following the tradition of LAGOS, a special issue of Discrete Applied Mathematics will be prepared for LAGOS 2021 and all interested researchers will be invited to contribute to this special issue. If the submission to this special issue of DAM is an extended version of the LAGOS 2021 submission published in ENTCS, the contribution should differ substantially from the submission published in ENTCS (e.g., further results, material from the optional appendix, etc., can be added).
