each of whom gave a one-hour lecture. The third type of talks were the 20-minute contributed talks running in two parallel sessions and given by 39 speakers. Volume 124 (1994) of the journal Discrete Mathematics was a special edition dedicated to this conference; it was edited by Stanley Fiorini and Josef Lauri, and it consisted of 22 selected papers. Twenty-seven years later we are gathered here for the second such conference organised in the Island of Malta. Although the time-lapse is

This conference is bringing together almost 200 researchers and mathematicians from 46 different countries spread across all the continents, including 14 invited speakers and a special guest of honour. We have received 150 abstracts for 20-minute contributed talks which will run in four parallel sessions and cover a large variety of areas within graph theory and combinatorics. A special issue of Discrete Applied Mathematics dedicated to this conference and containing full-length papers will be published. This Conference was made possible by the support of the University of Malta and through the financial support we received from our sponsors, whom we thank wholeheartedly. We would also like to thank all those who have helped in some way or another to make this Conference possible. Our final words of thanks go to all of you who are gathered here with us on our tiny Island, and we wish you an enjoyable and successful conference here in Qawra, St Paul's Bay. Finally, our gratitude goes to Professor Fiorini, without whose invaluable contribution we would not be here today. Ad multos annos!
