August 28, 2016  
OVERVIEWThe objective of the meeting is to gather researchers, postdoctoral
fellows, and graduate students from the Ontario/Quebec area working
in various elds of discrete mathematics in order to stimulate research
collaboration in this vibrant interdisciplinary area. The meeting
takes place on Friday and Saturday to encourage participation of
researchers from outside the Ottawa region. The invited speakers
are known for their eloquence of presentation and excellence in
research. They are chosen carefully to cover a broad range of topics
and aspects of discrete mathematics. Invited Speakers
Mathematical ConnectionsThis year we are reserving the Friday morning for talks on the theme of "Mathematical Connections". These are talks whose level is suitable for high school students and the interested public which feature interesting or unusual connections of mathematics to other subjects and disciplines. To headline this session we are very pleased to have Jason Brown of Dalhousie University speak on connections between mathematics and music. Contributed TalkWe will be accepting contributed talks in all areas of discrete mathematics as well as "Mathematical Connections" talks for the friday morning. Talk titles and abstracts can be sent to Brett Stevens brett(at)math.carleton.ca before 28 April. Travel Support for postdoctoral fellows and graduate studentsWe will offer partial support to postdoctoral fellows and graduate
students. Applications should be sent to Brett Stevens (brett(at)math.carleton.ca)
before 28 April. Canadian Tulip Festival

The OttawaCarleton Discrete Mathematics Days are the ospring
of Carleton Discrete Mathematics Day, which began in 1978 and have
been held continuously since 2002, supported
by the Fields Institute.
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:
