## 5-local-tensions ★★

Author(s): DeVos

**Conjecture**There exists a fixed constant (probably suffices) so that every embedded (loopless) graph with edge-width has a 5-local-tension.

## Drawing disconnected graphs on surfaces ★★

Author(s): DeVos; Mohar; Samal

**Conjecture**Let be the disjoint union of the graphs and and let be a surface. Is it true that every optimal drawing of on has the property that and are disjoint?

Keywords: crossing number; surface

## Grunbaum's Conjecture ★★★

Author(s): Grunbaum

**Conjecture**If is a simple loopless triangulation of an orientable surface, then the dual of is 3-edge-colorable.

## Consecutive non-orientable embedding obstructions ★★★

Author(s):

**Conjecture**Is there a graph that is a minor-minimal obstruction for two non-orientable surfaces?
