Algebraic Combinatorics Seminar 2010-11
held at the Fields Institute

Fridays 9:30 am-11 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)
