International Conference on

Cycles in Graphs

in conjunction with the 27th Annual Shanks Lectures

Department of Mathematics, Vanderbilt University, May 30-June 2, 2012

Sponsored by
the Shanks Endowment,
the National Science Foundation,
and Vanderbilt University.
The purpose of this conference is to bring together workers from around the world to focus on recent developments in cycles in graphs. This includes many different aspects of this area, including: conditions for hamiltonicity, pancyclicity and related properties such as the existence of degree-bounded spanning trees; cycle decompositions of graphs; cycle double covers; cycles in random graphs or graphs with density conditions; matroid extensions of graph cycle problems; cycles in directed graphs and hypergraphs; and enumeration of cycles.
