ALGOS 2020

Originating in arithmetics and logic, the theory of ordered sets is now a field of combinatorics that is intimately linked to graph theory, universal algebra and multiple-valued logic, and that has a wide range of classical applications such as formal calculus, classification, decision aid and social choice.

This international conference « Algebras, graphs and ordered sets » (ALGOS 2020) will bring together some of the best specialists in the theory of graphs, relational structures and ordered sets, themes that are omnipresent in artificial intelligence and in knowledge discovery, and with concrete applications in biomedical sciences, security, social networks and e-learning systems. One of the goals of this event is to provide a common ground for researchers in various fields of computer science and mathematics to meet, present their latest results, and discuss original applications in related scientific fields. On this basis, we hope for fruitful exchanges that can motivate multidisciplinary projects.

ALGOS 2020 is dedicated to Maurice Pouzet on the occasion of his 75th birthday.

Maurice Pouzet is Emeritus Professor of the University Claude-Bernard Lyon 1 and adjunct-professor of the University of Calgary (Canada).

ALGOS 2020 will be on August 26 (Wednesday), 27 (Thursday), 28 (Friday) of 2020, and was planned to take place at the Lorraine Research Laboratory in Computer Science and its Applications (LORIA, UMR 7503). Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ALGOS 2020 will take place online. To receive news and further information on the online event, please register.

There will be several presentations (keynote/regular). In addition to the local proceedings from LORIA (Université de Lorraine, CNRS, Inria Nancy G.E.), three special journal volumes are have been confirmed in the Journal of Multiple-Valued Logic and Soft-Computing, Discrete Mathematics & Theoretical Computer Science and Order for selected contributions.
