Preface

It is with my great pleasure and honor to organize the First International Conference on

Combinatorics, Graph Theory and Network Topology which is held from 25-26 November 2017

in the University of Jember, East Java, Indonesia and present a conference proceeding index by

Scopus. It is the first international conference organized by CGANT Research Group University

of Jember in cooperation with Indonesian Combinatorics Society (INACOBMS). The conference

is held to welcome participants from many countries, with broad and diverse research interests of

mathematics especially combinatorical study. The mission is to become an annual international

forum in the future, where, civil society organization and representative, research students,

academics and researchers, scholars, scientist, teachers and practitioners from all over the world

could meet in and exchange an idea to share and to discuss theoretical and practical knowledge

about mathematics and its applications. The aim of the first conference is to present and

discuss the latest research that contributes to the sharing of new theoretical, methodological

and empirical knowledge and a better understanding in the area mathematics, application of

mathematics as well as mathematics education.

The themes of this conference are as follows: (1) Connection of distance to other graph

properties, (2) Degree/diameter problem, (3) Distance-transitive and distance-regular graphs,

(4) Metric dimension and related parameters, (5) Cages and eccentric graphs, (6) Cycles and

factors in graphs, (7) Large graphs and digraphs, (8) Spectral Techniques in graph theory,

(9) Ramsey numbers, (10) Dimensions of graphs, (11) Communication networks, (12) Coding

theory, (13) Cryptography, (14) Rainbow connection, (15) Graph labelings and coloring, (16).

Applications of graph theory The topics are not limited to the above themes but they also include the mathematical

application research of interest in general including mathematics education, such as:(1)

Applied Mathematics and Modelling, (2) Applied Physics: Mathematical Physics, Biological

Physics, Chemistry Physics,(3) Applied Engineering: Mathematical Engineering, Mechanical

engineering, Informatics Engineering, Civil Engineering,(4) Statistics and Its Application,(5)

Pure Mathematics (Analysis, Algebra and Geometry),(6) Mathematics Education, (7) Literacy

of Mathematics,(8) The Use of ICT Based Media In Mathematics Teaching and Learning,(9)

Technological, Pedagogical, Content Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics, (10) Students Higher

Order Thinking Skill of Mathematics, (11) Contextual Teaching and Realistic Mathematics,

(12) Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Approach, (13) Local Wisdom Based Education: Ethnomathematics, (14) Showcase of Teaching and Learning of Mathematics, (16)

The 21st Century Skills: The Integration of 4C Skill in Teaching Math.

The participants of this ICCGANT 2017 conference were 200 people consisting research

students, academics and researchers, scholars, scientist, teachers and practitioners from many

countries. The selected papers to be publish of Journal of Physics: Conference Series are 80

papers. On behalf of the organizing committee, finally we gratefully acknowledge the support

from the University of Jember of this conference. We would also like to extend our thanks to

all lovely participants who are joining this unforgettable and valuable event.
