The Thirty-Ninth Southeastern International Conference on Combinatorics, Graph Theory, and Computing will be held March 3-7, 2008 in the University Center at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, FL.
The main campus is located three miles from the Atlantic Ocean, on an 850-acre site in Boca Raton , south of Palm Beach and north of Fort Lauderdale and Miami. The climate is subtropical with an average temperature of 75 degrees.
Notice to Presenters: We expect to have computers and computer projectors available in the lecture rooms. However, we have a zero tolerance policy for delays caused by computer failure so you must have backup materials available in case there is a problem with the computer presentation.
Celebrating its 39 th year, the Conference continues in the spirit of earlier conferences in Baton Rouge and Boca Raton. It brings together mathematicians and others interested in combinatorics, graph theory and computing, and their interactions. The Conference lectures and contributed papers, as well as the opportunities for informal conversations, have proved to be of great interest to other scientists and analysts employing these mathematical sciences in their professional work in business, industry, and government.
The Conference proceedings, which appear in the series, Congressus Numerantium, have been invaluable in the dissemination of important advances in the represented disciplines. The Conference continues to promote better understanding of the roles of modern applied mathematics, combinatorics, and computer science to acquaint the investigator in each of these areas with the various techniques and algorithms which are available to assist in his or her research. Each discipline has contributed greatly to the others, and the purpose of the Conference is to decrease even further the gaps between the fields.
For our 39 th Conference, we again have a program of exceptional invited speakers. Nick Wormald of the University of Waterloo will speak on Monday March 3; Markus Hohenwarter of Florida Atlantic University will speak on Tuesday March 4; Koen Thas of Ghent University will speak on Wednesday March 5; Vera Pless of the University of Illinois at Chicago will speak on Thursday March 6; Donald Kreher of Michigan Technological University will speak on Friday March 7. The organizing committee (Frederick Hoffman, Ronald C. Mullin, James Oxley, and Ralph G. Stanton) cordially invite participation in our Conference by interested persons in the academic community as well as business, industry and government.
