 This volume presents topics addressed at the working group meeting and workshop on Computergenerated Conjectures from Graph Theoretic and Chemical Databases held at Rutgers University (Piscataway, NJ). The events brought together theoreticians and practitioners working in graph theory and chemistry to share ideas and to set an agenda for future developments in the use of computers for generating scientific conjectures. Articles included in the volume were written by developers of some of the most important programs used around the world today. The disciplines represented include theoretical and applied computer science, statistics, discrete and nondiscrete mathematics, chemistry, and information science. The book is suitable for researchers and students interested in the use of computers in graph theory. Copublished with the Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science beginning with Volume 8. Volumes 17 were copublished with the Association for Computer Machinery (ACM).
