Algebraic Combinatorics Seminar 201011
held at the Fields Institute
Fridays 9:30 am11 am
( unless otherwise indicated)
The purpose of this seminar is to cover exposition on topics
of algebraic combinatorics which are of interest to the people
attending, so please feel free to come and participate. Every
year we pick a new topic to explore. We will be selecting the
seminar topic for this year shortly, so attend the first few
talks if you want to influence the decision.
If you are interested in speaking at the seminar, contact Franco
Saliola (saliola@gmail.com).
We also organize special sessions jointly with the Applied
Algebra Seminar (York University)
