The Fourth Slovenian International Conference in Graph Theory will take place from June 28 to July 2, 1999 at Lake Bled, a beautiful vacation resort in Julian Alps in the North of Slovenia. It is only half an hour drive from the Ljubljana international airport as well as from borders with Austria and Italy. The conference site is Hotel Golf.


The list of invited speakers includes:


During the conference we will celebrate anniversaries of our distinguished colleagues Tomaz Pisanski and Gert Sabidussi. In particular, they are closely related to the development of Graph Theory in Slovenia. Please let us know if you wish to present your talk during one of these occasions.

Registration can be made on-line (see above). Alternatively, the registration or any other inquiries about the conference may be addressed by e-mail to

or by standard mail:
               Graph Theory Conference
               Department of Mathematics
               Jadranska 19
               SI - 1111 Ljubljana, Slovenia
Organizers can also be addressed personally (,,

The registration fee is 120 US dollars if received before May 20, 1999 and 140 US dollars if received after May 20, 1999. The fee for graduate students and accompanying persons is 1/2 of the above. The fee covers the supplementary material, the Conference dinner and the refreshments at the coffee breaks. All registered participants will also receive, free of charge, a copy of the proceedings (a special volume of Discrete Mathematics).


The accomodation should be paid on-site directly to the hotel. They accept major credit cards, travelers cheques and cash.

To pay the registration fee, the following options are possible:


The conference registration desk in Golf Hotel will be open on Sunday, June 27 from 6-8pm and on Monday from 8-9am.

All participants will get their conference materials upon arrival to Golf Hotel. The hotel is located close to the lake and is within walking distance from all main points in Bled.


The official program will start on Monday, June 28 at 9am and close on Friday, July 2 in the afternoon (at approx. 5pm).

Each morning there will be a block of invited lectures. The special sessions and other contributed talks will take part in the afternoons, preferably only in two parallel sessions. The length of contributed talks is limited to 20 minutes.

The exact schedule of the talks will be distributed at the conference. It will also be available a few days before the conference through our WWW server and will be sent out to registered participants by email.


Abstracts of talks should be submitted as soon as possible but not later than June 5. They can be sent by standard mail, by email, or entered at the time of the registration (preferably in TeX format). No specific format is requested but make sure to include your (and your coauthors') name(s), affiliations and a brief description of your results. If possible, try to limit the length to one page.


The conference proceedings will be published as a special issue or volume of Discrete Mathematics. The deadline for submissions of papers is July 2, 1999 (the end of the conference). They have to be sent in triplicate to the conference address given above or given to the organizers during the conference. We also accept manuscripts by email or on a disk if written in TeX or LaTeX. The manuscripts should follow the general guidelines for manuscripts submitted to Discrete Mathematics. All papers will be refereed according to the usual standards of the journal.



A block of rooms has been reserved for the participants in a high class Golf Hotel (the conference venue) available at the following conference rates: 120 DEM (single), 80 DEM (double), 140 DEM (half board, single), 100 DEM (half board, double room), where half board includes one of the two main meals (lunch or dinner). A block of appartments is also available in Savica, a unit attached to Hotel Golf. The price for a double room appartment is 65 DEM per person, while an appartment with 4 persons costs 45 DEM per person. (Note: 1 DEM = 1 German Mark = approximately $0.6).

The requested accomodation will be reserved by the organizers for all participants registered by June 5.


The Slovenian currency is called TOLAR. Its abbreviation is SIT (SlovenIan Tolar). The current exchange rate is approximately 100 SIT to one German mark or 180 SIT to a US dollar. The prices are generally comparable to the prices in the European Union.

The weather in June is usually quite pleasant. Average temperatures are between 18C and 25C. However, we suggest you bring along a sweater, just to be on the safe side.

Bled is a very nice vacation resort with a beautiful lake and many interesting places to visit. There are many nice walks, hiking places, historic monuments (a nice castle), tennis courts, golf field, etc.
