The Forty-Fifth Southeastern International Conference on Combinatorics, Graph Theory, and Computing will be held March 3-7, 2014 in the Student Union 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.
Invited speakers at this year's 45th SEICCGTC will include:
Noga Alon, Tel-Aviv University
Maria Chudnovsky, Columbia University
Charlie Colbourn, Arizona State University
Jacob Fox, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Fan Chung Graham, UC San Diego
Ron Graham, UC San Diego
Gary Mullen, Penn State University
This year's conference will feature several Special Sessions.
1. William T. Tutte: The man and His Contributions (Organizers: Ron Mullin and Dan Younger).
Contributed Talks for the Tutte Session are to be submitted according to the required format:
2. Finite Fields (Organizer: Gary Mullen).
3. Structured Families of Graphs: Mathematical and Algorithmic Aspects Celebrating the 65th Birthday of Robert Jamison (Organizers: Derek Corneil and Martin Golumbic).
Please visit http://www.cs.haifa.ac.il/~golumbic/boca2014 for updates and further information.
Additional Invited Session Speakers: Pavol Hell, Robert Jamison, Ortrud Oellerman, Jerry Spinrad, Ann Trenk and Tom Trotter.
Contributed Talks, to be submitted in the usual Boca tradition, spanning areas related to Robert's research and the theme of the special track are welcome.
Celebrating its 45th 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 45th Conference, we shall have a program of exceptional invited speakers. Confirmed speakers include: Noga Alon, Tel-Aviv University; Maria Chudnovsky, Columbia University; Charles Colbourn, Arizona State University; Jacob Fox, Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Fan Chung Graham, University of California, San Diego; Ronald Lewis Graham, University of California, San Diego; Gary Mullen, Pennsylvania State University; Scott Vanstone, University of Waterloo. The organizing committee (Frederick Hoffman, Ronald C. Mullin, and Stephen Locke) cordially invite participation in our Conference by interested persons in the academic community as well as business, industry and government.
Notice to Presenters: We will have computers, computer projectors, and overhead projectors available in the lecture rooms. Due to the possibility of computer failure or computer incompatibility, we suggest that you bring backup materials in case there are any problems with the computer presentation.
The 45th Conference is partially supported by the National Security Agency.
