The WG 2017 conference is the 43rd edition of the WG series. It will take place in hotel Kapellerput in Heeze, near Eindhoven, the Netherlands. The conference will be from Wednesday June 21 to Friday June 23, 2017. Participants are expected to arrive in Heeze on Tuesday June 20, where we will have a welcome reception in the evening.
WG conferences aim to connect theory and applications by demonstrating how graph-theoretic concepts can be applied in various areas of computer science. The goal is to present recent results and to identify and explore directions for future research. Submitted papers should describe original results in any aspects of graph theory related to computer science, including but not restricted to:
Contributors are invited to submit an extended abstract of at most 12 pages Springer LNCS format including title, abstract, but excluding references, without changes to the settings of margins and vertical spacing, and with numbered pages. Proofs omitted due to space restrictions must be placed in an appendix, to be read by program committee members at their discretion. Simultaneous submission of papers to any other conference with proceedings published or made publicly available, or submitting papers previously accepted for journal publication is not allowed. Invited papers and accepted contributions will be published in the conference proceedings in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series of Springer-Verlag.
Thanks to a generous donation by Springer Verlag, WG 2017 is able to offer awards of 500 euro for the best paper and the best student paper. The awards will be decided by the program committee. The committee can decide to split the award(s) over multiple papers. Papers eligible for the best student paper can have non-student co-authors, but the main work in a paper that is a candidate for the best student paper award must be done by co-authors that were students at the time of submission, and the award can be received only by such co-authors. It must be indicated at the time of submission whether a paper is candidate for this award.

Invited papers and accepted contributions will be published in the conference proceedings in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series of Springer-Verlag. Please adhere to the following guidelines.
Fedor Fomin received his Masters (1992) and PhD (1997) from the Faculty of Mathematics and Mechanics at St. Petersburg State University. Since 2002, Fomin has been a professor of Algorithms in the Department of Informatics at the University of Bergen. He is a member of Editorial Boards of Algorithmica, SIAM J. Discrete Mathematics, Information and Computation, Journal of Discrete Algorithms, and Theoretical Computer Science. He chaired Program Committees of ICALP 2013, SWAT 2012, IWPEC 2009 and WG 2006.
Remco van der Hofstad is full professor in probability at Eindhoven University of Technology and acting scientific director of Eurandom, the institute in stochastics located on the Eindhoven campus. He received his PhD at the University of Utrecht in 1997, under the supervision of Frank den Hollander and Richard Gill, and worked at McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada, and Delft University of Technology. Remco received the Prix Henri Poincare 2003 jointly with Gordon Slade, the Rollo Davidson Prize 2007, and is a laureate of the `Innovative Research VIDI Scheme' 2003 and `Innovative Research VICI Scheme' 2008. He is also one of the 11 co-applicants of the Gravitation program NETWORKS . Remco is acting spokesman for the Dutch Mathematics platform `Platform Wiskunde Nederland' and editor-in- chief of the `Network Pages’, an interactive website on networks for a broad audience.
Petra Mutzel is Professor for Algorithm Engineering at TU Dortmund. She earned her diploma in 1990 from the University of Augsburg in Mathematics, her doctorate in Computer Science from the University of Cologne in 1994, and her habilitation in 1999 from the Max Planck Institute for Informatics. She held a professorship for Algorithms and Data Structures at Vienna University of Technology beginning in 1999 before moving to TU Dortmund in 2004. She is a member of various Editorial boards including the ACM Journal on Experimental Algorithms, the Journal for Graph Algorithms and Applications (JGAA), Mathematical Programming Computation, and EURO Journal on Computational Optimization. She is in the Steering Committee of ALENEX and of WALCOM. Jointly with Michael Jünger she has co-edited the book Graph Drawing Software, which has been initiated at the International Symposium on Graph Drawing in Vienna in 2001. Petra's research interests are in graph algorithms and combinatorial optimization triggered by applications. She has made contributions in graph drawing and visualization, network design, cheminformatics, physics, and computational biology.
The hotel is located in a friendly environment, in a small town called Heeze, southwest of Eindhoven. The surrounding woods are great for short walks and relaxing.
The registration fee will include all meals during the conference: breakfast, (dutch) lunch, and a plentiful dinner, as well as refreshments during breaks.
The best way to get to Heeze is by train from Eindhoven central station. There is a train every 30 minutes, and the travel time is 9 minutes. Transportation will be arranged from Heeze train station to the hotel by the organizers.
Eindhoven airport serves mostly cheaper airlines from various European destinations. From the airport, you can get to Eindhoven Central station by bus 10, 400 or 401 in approximately 25 minutes. The second best option is to fly to Amsterdam Schiphol airport: there is a direct InterCity train from Schiphol to Eindhoven. Other nearby options include Dusseldorf and Brussels, as well as the smaller airports in Rotterdam and Maastricht.
|Airport||Min. travel time||Route (details on tickets below)|
|Amsterdam (AMS)||1:30||Train, direct connection to Eindhoven (every 30 min., travel time 1:29)|
|Eindhoven (EIN)||0:25||Bus 400 or 401 to Eindhoven central station (every 5-10 min., travel time 0:21 to 0:26)|
|Rotterdam (RTM)||1:30||Bus 33 every 15 min., travel time 0:22 to Rotterdam central station, then train every 30 min. to Eindhoven, (travel time 1:03)|
|Maastricht (MST)||1:30||Bus 30 to Beek-Elsloo train station (every 30 min, travel time 14 min), then train to Heeze changing twice in Roermond and Weert (travel time 1:12)|
|Düsseldorf (DUS)||1:40 (bus)||Direct IC bus to Eindhoven (once per hour)|
|Brussels (BRU)||2:30||Train to Eindhoven, changing twice in Roosendaal, and Tilburg (once per hour)|
In the Netherlands, paper tickets for single journeys are available from ticket machines at train stations and from the bus driver on buses. Note that there is an extra charge of 0.50 EUR per paper ticket, so if you plan to travel a little more, consider buying an anonymous OV-chipkaart.
The below registration prices include the conference registration fee, the proceedings, accommodation, meals, some drinks, and the excursion. We have discount prices for students, and there is also an option to have a non-participating partner come along (accommodated in a room shared with the participant).
|Prices in EUR||Regular||Student||Non-participant|
|Early bird (until 15 May)||700||450||500|
|Regular (from 16 May)||800||550||500|
