Discrete Mathematics Days is a forum for discrete mathematics researchers
from the Ontario/Quebec area (and beyond!) to meet and collaborate.
We cover combinatorics in a broad sense, including graphs, designs,
finite fields, enumeration and algorithms.

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
