The University is spread over five campuses at Amritapuri, Bengaluru, Coimbatore, Kochi and Mysore in three different states. The University offers over 150 undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral programmes in twenty disciplines including Engineering, Management and Medicine. It has a student population around seventeen thousand and a faculty strength of two thousand.

Right from the inception research has been a very significant activity at AMRITA University. The research activities at AMRITA are directed towards societal, humanitarian and community development and relief. Many centres of excellence have been started in cutting-edge areas with the support of major national laboratories, industry leaders and agencies. AMRITA is also a partner in the Indian government’s Ministry of Human Resource development’s National Mission for Education using Information and Communication Technology (ICT). AMRITA has also bagged or filed fifty major patents and inventions in the past few years. A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed in 2005 with various US universities, some of which are ranked among the best universities in the world and has active tie-ups and collaborations with over 75 universities in USA, Europe, Australia, Japan etc. All these have made AMRITA one of the most sought after university by top ranking students from all parts of the country and abroad. Amrita University was the youngest university to be awarded with an 'A' grade by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC). Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham has the unique distinction of being the nation’s first of its kind - fully interactive, multi-disciplinary, multi-media, virtual campus without geographical limitations, linking all its campuses. The satellite network has facilitated leading experts from around the world to have live academic interaction from a single centre in India to students, academicians and researchers at other campuses across the country.

The conference will be held at the Coimbatore Campus of the AMRITA University which is located in a serene village on the foothills of Western Ghats at Amritanagar, Ettimadai which is 20km away from Coimbatore.

Department of Mathematics

The Department of Mathematics was established in the year 1994. The department offers the Ph.D Programmed a five year Integrated M.Sc. Programme in Mathematics and various Mathematics courses for B.Tech, M.Tech and MCA Programmes. The Department has been vigorously engaged in both research and teaching. The department has at present 25 faculty members who are all involved in research activities in the areas like, Network on Chip, Regression Analysis, Fractal Theory, Pattern Recognition, Fluid Mechanics, Lie Groups, Graph Theory, Cryptography and Bio-Statistics. The department organized International Conferences during 2004, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2015.

Most of our faculty members, by virtue of their expertise, are invited by other institutions to deliver invited lectures / key-note addresses, to be resource persons for FDP or STTP and to chair technical sessions in conferences and seminars To promote research activities, the department organizes weekly seminars where the faculty members deliver lectures on a topic of their choice. The constructive discussions held during such presentations make the faculty members to keep themselves updated of the latest developments. These seminars also enable the junior faculty members to develop their teaching skills. The department also invites experts from premier institutes to deliver lectures and to interact with faculty members to promote collaborative research. To give a platform to the students to manifest their Mathematical talents and to kindle their Mathematical quest, the Department has a student forum by name “ANANTAM”, which organizes workshops, quiz programs and puzzle corners etc for student members. It also organizes intercollegiate competitions.

The conference will provide an opportunity for interactive discussion with experts on research in the areas of Graph Theory and its Applications. Original research papers are invited from Research scholars, Academicians and Industrialist on Graph Theory and its allied areas. Authors who want present their research papers are invited to submit full paper in English no longer than 12 pages (preferably in word, 11pt font, Times New Roman formatted for A4 size paper). Accepted papers are expected to be presented at the conference. All the research papers for the conference to be sent to the conference coordinator through e-mail (

Papers presented in the conference will be thoroughly referred by the conference editors and published in the form of Conference Proceeding.
