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. Confirmed Speakers
Contributed TalksWe will be accepting 25 minute contributed talks in any area of discrete mathematics. Titles and abstracts (text or LaTex only please) should be sent to Jason Gao (zgao at math.carleton.ca) and Mike Newman (mnewman at uottawa.ca) by 13 April. Travel SupportWe may be able to offer partial travel support to graduate students and postdocs. Applications should be sent to Jason Gao (zgao at math.carleton.ca) and Mike Newman (mnewman at uottawa.ca) by 13 April. RegistrationThere will be $25 registration fee, payable onsite. This fee is waived for students, postdocs and speakers. 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:
