Chemical Graph Theory Conference, Sombor, Serbia, June 3–5, 2022

The Mathematical Institute of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts, the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Kragujevac and the Department of Mathematics, Physics and Geosciences of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts are jointly organising an international conference on chemical graph theory in Sombor, Serbia from June 3–5, 2022.

The conference is primarily organised to celebrate recent introduction of the codes 05C09 Graphical indices (Wiener index, Zagreb index, Randić index, etc.), and 05C92 Chemical graph theory in the Mathematics Subject Classification 2020, which recognise chemical graph theory as an independent subject area within graph theory.

The conference will be held in Sombor, Serbia. While Sombor is already well known for its greenery, cultural life and beautiful historical city center, it is quickly becoming famous among chemical graph theorists also for the recently introduced Sombor index.

Seminar for Biomathematics and Mathematical Chemistry

Monthly research seminar for biomathematics and mathematical chemistry is intended for formal and informal acquaintance with the latest achievements in the fields that intertwine the use of mainly discrete mathematical and computer methods in chemistry and biosciences. At the seminar, researchers and doctoral students report on their results. On the other hand, it also enables informal meetings of those interested in joint research work on concrete open problems.


If you would like to contribute a talk, please contact Dr Nino Basic via email.

Awards granted to IAMC members
The "International Award Latium Between Europe and the Mediterranean for Medicine, Physics or Chemistry" was granted in Rome in the year 2006 to Dejan Plavsic, the former Treasurer of the IAMC, for his contributions to graph theory and molecular topology. His papers published in "Chemical Physics Letters" are awarded by this journal as two of its most cited fifty papers in the period from 2003-2007.

The Annual Award of the Republic of Croatia for Science in 2008 was granted to Ante Graovac, the Secretary of the IAMC, for his achievements in sciences, especially to mathematical chemistry.
