The International Conference on Algorithms and Discrete Applied Mathematics (CALDAM), held under aegis of the Association for Computer Science and Discrete Mathematics (ACSDM), is intended to bring together researchers working in the areas of algorithms and applied discrete mathematics and provide a high-quality forum for the dissemination and discussion of research results in these broad areas. CALDAM has originated from the ongoing efforts for promoting research in Algorithms and Discrete Mathematics.
The first CALDAM was organized by the Department of Computer Science at Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur (IIT Kanpur) from February 8 to 10, 2015. The second CALDAM was organized by the Department of Future Studies, University of Kerala, Thiruvananthapuram from February 18 to 20, 2016. The third CALDAM was organized by the Department of Mathematics, Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani (BITS Pilani),K K Birla Goa Campus, Goa, India from February 16 to 18, 2017. The fourth CALDAM was organized by the Department of Computer Science Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati (IIT Guwahati) from February 15 to 17, 2018. The fifth CALDAM was organized by the Department of Computer Science Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur (IIT Kharagpur) from February 14 to 16, 2019.
The proceedings of accepted papers (CALDAM 2015, CALDAM 2016, CALDAM 2017, CALDAM 2018, CALDAM 2019), were published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science by Springer. Also, selected papers are being published as a special issue of Discrete Applied Mathematics (DAM). In all the previous CALDAMs, Springer has sponsored awards for the best student presentations.
The sixth CALDAM (CALDAM 2020) will be organized by the Department of Computer Science & Engineering, IIT Hyderabad from 13th to 15th of February 2020. As in earlier CALDAMs, the proceedings of accepted papers of CALDAM 2020 is being planned to be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science by Springer (subject to finalizing the details with Springer). Also, it is planned to publish the selected papers of CALDAM 2019 as a special issue of Discrete Applied Mathematics (DAM), as in previous CALDAMs. As before, Springer is likely to sponsor awards for the best student presentations.
The conference focuses on topics related to efficient algorithms and data structures, their analysis (both theoretical and experimental), the mathematical problems arising thereof, new applications of discrete mathematics, advances in existing applications, and the development of new tools for discrete mathematics.
