CALDAM The International Conference on Algorithms and Discrete Applied Mathematics (CALDAM) 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 (CALDAM 2015) was organized by the Department of Computer Science at Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur (IIT Kanpur) from February 8 to 10, 2015. The proceedings of accepted papers of CALDAM 2015 were published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science by Springer. Selected papers of CALDAM 2015 will also be published as a special issue of Discrete Applied Mathematics (DAM). CALDAM 2016 The second CALDAM (CALDAM 2016) will be organized by the Department of Futures Studies, University of Kerala, Thiruvananthapuram from Feburay 18 to 20, 2016. The proceedings of accepted papers of CALDAM 2016 is expected to be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science by Springer as was in CALDAM 2015.
