SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMS AND ACTIVITIES
|October 31, 2014|
Since 2002, the Ottawa -- Carleton Discrete Mathematics Day has been held annually in the spring, alternating its location between Carleton University and the University of Ottawa. The meeting is an offspring of the Carleton Discrete Mathematics Days held in the past at Carleton University. (For more information on recent Discrete Mathematics Days please visit
Traditionally, the meeting consists of four one-hour invited talks
presented in a single day, a Saturday. In addition, a fifth speaker
is invited to give a colloquium talk in the Ottawa -- Carleton Institute
of Mathematics and Statistics on the preceding Friday afternoon. The
invited speakers, known for their eloquence of presentation and excellence
in research, are chosen carefully to cover a broad range of topics and
aspects of discrete mathematics. The Friday colloquium talk is addressed
to a general audience of mathematicians. In contrast, this year the
meeting will consist of invited talks and a session of contributed talks.
The length of the meeting is extended to two full days.
The objective of the meeting is to gather researchers, postdoctoral
fellows, and graduate students from the Ontario/Quebec area working
in various fields of discrete mathematics in order to stimulate research
collaboration in this vibrant interdisciplinary area. This year's invited
speakers for the Discrete Mathematics workshop lead research in the
areas of combinatorial structures and designs, combinatorial enumeration,finite
fields, graph theory, and optimization. They have been involved in theoretical,
applied, and algorithmic aspects of discrete mathematics.
