[DMANET] CanaDAM 2017 - Preliminary Announcement

CanaDAM 2017 - Preliminary Announcement

The sixth Canadian Discrete and Algorithmic Mathematics conference (CanaDAM) <> will be held June 12-15, 2017 at Ryerson University in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

The general topic of the conference is the theory and application of discrete structures. Its goal is to highlight the most salient trends in the field. The conference will bring together researchers from the various disciplines with which discrete and algorithmic mathematics interact. The CanaDAM conference is held in odd numbered years using a format similar to the SIAM conference on Discrete Mathematics. Particular areas of interest include graphs and digraphs, hypergraphs, matroids, ordered sets, designs, coding theory, enumeration, combinatorics of words, discrete optimization, discrete and computational geometry, lattice point enumeration, combinatorial algorithms, computational complexity, and applications of discrete and algorithmic mathematics, including (but not limited to) web graphs, computational biology, communication networks and information processing.

Invited Speakers:
Tanya Berger-Wolf (U. Illinois at Chicago)
Peter Keevash (Oxford)
Robert Kleinberg (Cornell)
Bojan Mohar (Simon Fraser)
Shubhangi Saraf (Rutgers)
Andrew Suk (U Illinois at Chicago)
Lauren Williams (Berkeley)
Julia Wolf (Bristol)
