30th Coast Combinatorics Conference
February 11-14, 2019
The Coast Combinatorics Conference Series began in
1999. There are usually two meetings per year,
one on the Canadian west coast in mid-February, and one on the
Canadian east coast in early May. Both meetings feature
a collegial, collaborative, workshop-style atmosphere, and a
diverse collections of talks on topics in Discrete Mathematics
and Theoretical Computer Science. A meeting is
considered a success if all participants have some interesting
talks to attend, and some colleagues to work with.
The 2013, 2015 and 2017 west-coast conferences
were held on the island of Hawaii. The 2014 west-coast
conference was held at the University of North Florida in
Jacksonville. The 2019 meeting will be held at the
University of Hawaii, Manoa (Honolulu), and is being
co-organized by Ruth Haas and Gary MacGillivray.
