**Carola Doerr** (CNRS, LIP6 Sorbonne University) *Evolutionary Algorithms – From Theory to Practice and Back*

In the last 15 years, the theory of randomized black-box optimization has advanced considerably, and has contributed to efficient optimization by providing insights into the working principles of black-box optimization which are hard or impossible to obtain by empirical means. On the other hand, empirically-guided benchmarking has opened up new research directions for theoretical investigations.

In this presentation we will discuss the state of the art in the theory of randomized black-box optimization algorithms. As part of this critical survey we will also mention a number of open questions and connections to other fields of Computer Science.

**Binh-Minh Bui-Xuan** (LIP6) *Temporal matching*

In contrast to classical graph theory, we show that the problem of computing a temporal matching of maximum size in a link stream is in general NP-hard. We then depict a kernelization algorithm parameterized by the solution size for the problem, producing quadratic kernels. As a byproduct we also give a 2-approximation algorithm. Both algorithms are implemented and confronted to link streams collected from real world graph data:

We observe from the experiments that the kernelization algorithm can perform very well in practice, reducing the instance size downto 10-20% on realistic mining parameters. In contrast, the 2-approximation gives rather mixed results. We conjecture that the approximation factor can be improved.

Although our SGE is handcrafted, we also show how our generic embedding technique can be learned and built in a data-driven manner opening the way to new learning algorithms and deep learning architectures with some invariant constraints built-in.

**Bergougnoux Benjamin** (IRIF) *Rank Based Approach on Graphs with Structured Neighborhood*

The $d$-neighbor equivalence is a tools introduced by Bui-Xuan et al. in 2013 to obtained efficient parameterized algorithms for many width measures (clique-width, rank-width, mim-width,…) and for many problems with a locally checkable constraint (Dominating Set, Independent Set,…).

By combining these two notions, we obtain efficient algorithms for several connectivity problems such as Connected Dominating Set, Node Weighted Steiner Tree, Maximum Induced Tree, Longest Induced Path, and Feedback Vertex Set. For all these problems, we obtain $2^{O(k)}\cdot n^{O(1)}$, $2^{O(k \log(k))}\cdot n^{O(1)}$, $2^{O(k^2)}\cdot n^{O(1)}$ and $n^{O(k)}$ time algorithms parameterized respectively by clique-width, $\mathbb{Q}$-rank-width, rank-width and maximum induced matching width. Our approach simplifies and unifies the known algorithms for each of the parameters and match asymptotically also the best time complexity for Vertex Cover and Dominating Set.

**Riste Škrekovski** (University of Ljubljana) *Some results and problems on unique-maximum colorings of plane graphs*

We first show that the conjecture holds for various subclasses of planar graphs but then we disprove it for planar graphs in general. So, we conclude that the facial unique-maximum chromatic number of the sphere is not four but five.

Additionally, we will consider a facial edge-coloring analogue of the aforementioned coloring, and we will conclude the talk with various open problems.

**Yllka Velaj** (CWI Amsterdam) *Stable Outcomes in Modified Fractional Hedonic Games*

We are interested in the scenario in which agents, individually or jointly, choose to form a new coalition or to join an existing one, until a stable outcome is reached. To this aim, we consider common stability notions, leading to strong Nash stable outcomes, Nash stable outcomes or core stable outcomes: we study their existence, complexity and performance, both in the case of general weights and in the case of 0-1 weights.

**Marcin Kaminski** *Induced minors and well-quasi-ordering*

We show that the class of H-free graphs is well-quasi-ordered by induced minors if and only if H is an induced minor of the gem (=the path on 4 vertices plus a dominating vertex) or the graph obtained by adding a vertex of degree 2 to the K4 (= the complete graph on 4 vertices).

This generalizes a a result of Robin Thomas who proved that K4-free graphs are well-quasi-ordered by induced minors and complements similar dichotomy theorems proved by Guoli Ding for subgraphs and Peter Damaschke for induced subgraphs.

This is joint work with Jarosław Błasiok, Jean-Florent Raymond, and Théophile Trunck.
