SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMS AND ACTIVITIES 

August 20, 2017  
This will be a
threeday workshop in graph theory and applications, focusing on subareas
in graph theory that have applications in optimization, computing,
and network communications. The goal of this workshop is to bring
top researchers in this area to Carleton to foster collaboration and
to expose students to important problems in the growing field. The
meeting will stimulate joint work among researchers both from Canada
and from abroad and attract students and postdoctoral fellows from
Ontario and Quebec.
