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 Futures Studies, University of Kerala, Thiruvananthapuram from Feburay 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 13 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 CALDAM was organized by the Department of Computer Science Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur (IIT Kharagpur) from February 14 to 16, 2019.
The sixth CALDAM CALDAM was organised by the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, IIT Hyderabad from February 13 to 15, 2020.
The seventh CALDAM was organised by the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, IIT Ropar from February 11 to 13, 2021.
The eighth CALDAM was organised by the Department of Mathematics, Pondicherry University from February 10 to 12, 2022.
The proceedings of accepted papers (CALDAM 2015, CALDAM 2016, CALDAM 2017, CALDAM 2018, CALDAM 2019, CALDAM 2020, CALDAM 2021, CALDAM 2022), 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 ninth CALDAM (CALDAM 2023) will be organized by Dhirubhai Ambani Institute of Information and Communication Technology, Gandhinagar from 9th to 11th of February 2023. As in earlier CALDAMs, the proceedings of accepted papers of CALDAM 2023 will be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science by Springer. Also, it is likely that the selected papers of CALDAM 2023 will be published as a special issue of Discrete Applied Mathematics (DAM), as in previous CALDAMs. As before, it is likely that Springer will sponsor awards for the best student presentations.
