The 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

Ed Bender, University of California at San Diego
Jim Geelen, University of Waterloo
William Martin, Worcester Polytechnic Institute
Wendy Myrvold, University of Victoria
Leonard Soicher, Queen Mary University of London

Contributed Talks

We 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 and Mike Newman (mnewman at by 13 April.

Travel Support

We may be able to offer partial travel support to graduate students and postdocs. Applications should be sent to Jason Gao (zgao at and Mike Newman (mnewman at by 13 April.


There will be $25 registration fee, payable onsite. This fee is waived for students, postdocs and speakers.

Canadian Tulip Festival

Discrete Mathematics Day attendees and family traveling with them may enjoy attending the Canadian Tulip Festival which is running at the same time as the conference and close to Carleton University's campus.

The Ottawa-Carleton Discrete Mathematics Days are the o spring 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:
