 Prairie Discrete Mathematics Workshop 2022
 June 9 & 10, On-line

Place and Date | Speakers | Location and Registration | Program | Organizing Committee and Contacts | Sponsors |  


The workshop builds on the success of the previous Prairie Discrete Math Workshops, from the first one organized by Shaun Fallat and Brian Alspach and held at the University of Regina in Regina, Saskatchewan, in 2003. The intention is to gather together combinatorists from the prairie provinces and nearby locations for a relatively informal workshop.

The 2022 workshop will be on-line, but we are hoping to support small viewing party at other locations.

Additional comments or requests:


There will be approximately 5 or 6 talks on each day. Each day will have a mix of invited speakers and contributed talks. Students and Post-doctoral fellows are encouraged to submit contributed talks. One focus of this workshop is to introduce new talent in the community! We are also introducing a fun new aspect to the PDMW, Lightning Round Talks. Presenters will have only 3 minutes to present either a new research idea they are developing, a summary of a new results, or an open problem they want to share with the members of the community. The 3 minutes will be strictly enforced, but attendees will be able to discuss problems further in breakout rooms.
