  • Algorithms, Combinatorics, and Graph Theory

    Algorithms, Combinatorics, and Graph Theory (ACG) is a laboratory whose goal is to improve the theoretical/practical efficiency of algorithms. We aim at developing new branches of Graph Theory/Combinatorics that can aid in modeling, and effectively solving (exactly or approximately), a wide range of computationally hard problems. For related conferences see Workshop on Algorithms, Combinatorics, and Geometry.
