[DMANET] 4th Summer School on "Algorithmic and Enumerative Combinatorics"


4th summer school "Algorithmic and Enumerative Combinatorics" (AEC 2018)
RISC, J. Kepler University Linz, Austria, July 30-August 3, 2018


Within the framework of the SFB "Algorithmic and Enumerative
Combinatorics", the summer school AEC 2018 will be held at the
Research Institute for Symbolic Computation (Johannes Kepler
University Linz) in Hagenberg. It is jointly organized with the algebra group
at the Johannes Kepler University and the
combinatorics groups at the University of Vienna and the
Vienna University of Technology.

The goal of this summer school is to put forward the interplay
between the fields of Enumerative Combinatorics, Analytic
Combinatorics, and Algorithmics. This is a very active research
area, which, aside from the three fields fueling each other
mutually, receives as well constant impetus from outside, by its
interaction with algebra, probability, statistical physics, and
computer science.

The summer school will feature three series of lectures, given by

* Francois Bergeron (Universite du Quebec a Montreal, Canada)
* Eric Fusy (Laboratoire d'informatique de l'Ecole polytechnique, France)
* George Labahn (University of Waterloo, Canada)

Each series of lectures will present a recent exciting trend in
these three research fields.

Aside from the three lecture series (5 hours each), there is time
for a limited number of contributed talks (20 minutes each).

There will be no conference fee. Lodging will be arranged at the
Hotel Sommerhaus Hagenberg (around 300 m distance from the venue
where the summer school wll be held). A single room costs 42 Euro
and a double room costs 70 Euro per day (breakfast and internet
connection are included).

There are limited funds available for participant support.
