Scope: The main aim of the workshop is to present recent results and open problems in the area of Graph Theory and Combinatorics, also in connection with some applications in Engineering and Computer Science, obtained in the framework of a “Research Project of National Interest” (PRIN) financially supported by the (Italian) Ministry for Education, University and Research MIUR.


Location: Politecnico di Milano, Department of Mathematics, via Bonardi 9, Milan, Italy 20133.

Date: January 26-27, 2017.
