The members of the Organizing Committee of HyGraDe 2017 would like to express their cordial thanks to all who helped make this conference happen.

First of all, we are very grateful to our invited speakers who have accepted our invitation to give a plenary talk to this congress, making it a recognized international scientific event.

Next, we express our gratitude to our participants whose presence and contributed talk made this scientific event successful.

We have much pleasure in thanking several organizations, in particular, the Universities of Catania, Messina and Naples "Federico II", and the "Istituto Nazionale di Alta Matematica - INdAM - sezione GNSAGA", whose financial contribution was fundamental to organize the congress. We also thank the Departments of Mathematics and Informatics (University of Catania) and the Department MIFT (University of Messina) for their financial contribution and for covering the expenses of the Inaugural Celebration. Several people from the above mentioned institutions deserve special recognition due to their role in the administrative organisation of the congress HyGraDe 2017: Rossella Baldoni and Grazia Strano (Catania), Antonio Denaro,  Marco Noli Maio and Santa Bardetta (Messina), Carmela Ippolito, Deborah Tomasello and Claudio Roberti (Naples).

We express our gratitude to Prof. Paolo Giaquinta, as Dean of Accademia Peloritana dei Pericolanti, and Prof. Dragan Marusic, as Editor-in-chief of the journal "Art of Discrete and Applied Mathematics - ADAM" for giving us the possibility to host the Conference Proceedings on their journals.

Our very special thanks go to: the staff of the Elihotel, the host of the Conference, and especially to Santino Altadonna (director of the Hotel) for their support and excellent work; Nancy Pandolfino, Congress Organizer of "Lisciotto Turismo SRL", for taking care of many issues in the organisation; Anna Cerere and Giuseppe Rubino, owners of "PubbliVisual SRL", for their careful work on the congress material arranged for the participants; Francesco Furnari, for arranging all transfers of our invited speakers.
