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 invites participation in our Conference by interested persons in the academic community as well as business, industry and government.
The 45th Conference is partially supported by the National Security Agency.
