Workshop on Computational Graph Theory and Combinatorics
This workshop will be held May 6-8, 1999, at the campus of the University
of Victoria, in
Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA.
NOTE: Please pre-register if you are planning on

The "Pacific Northwest" area is an important center for research in graph
theory and combinatorics. Computer techniques are becoming ever more critical
as an aid in approaching research problems. The aim of this workshop is
to bring together leading experts, interested researchers, postdocs and
graduate students to share their expertise in applying computational techniques
to graph theory and combinatorics problems. Contributed sessions will focus
on ways in which research in discrete mathematics has been aided by computational techniques.
The following speakers will present one hour talks.
Department of Computer Science,
University of Victoria.
There will also be contributed 1/2 talks (changed to 20 minutes).
Prospective speakers should submit an extended abstract of 1 to 3
pages, preferably in postscript format to
or by snail mail to the following address.
Herbert S. Wilf, University of Pennsylvannia,
Brendan McKay, Australian National University,
Steve Skiena, SUNY Stony Brook,
We hope to schedule all who wish to speak, and will use the abstracts mainly
assist in scheduling, and assemble them into a "proceedings" to be distributed
at the workshop. Abstracts will be reduced and photocopied and must be
in 12 point font or larger, with one inch borders all around. Participants
are encouraged to report on ongoing research.

Students and postdocs are strongly encouraged to participate, and the workshop
should be of considerable interest to the many students in the PIMS region
who are doing research on discrete mathematics. Some funding will be set
aside to help students with travel expenses (to a maximum of $100).
To help offset costs there will be a registration fee of $35 ($10 for students).
The registration fee will be collected at the conference, but we ask that
all who are intending to attend fill out the
form as soon as possible.
The "Senate Chambers" in the University Centre
have been reserved for this workshop. These are ideally suited to a workshop
of this size, providing a central lecture facility and associated rooms
for discussion and breaks.
Here are some useful links for out of town participants.
This workshop is sponsored and funded by the
Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences.
Submission of contributed abstracts: March 16, 1999 (submissions will be
accepted till March 31, 1999, but primary consideration will be given to
those received by the 16th) .
Notification of acceptance: March 31, 1999.
Application for student support: March 31, 1999.
Additional support from the Faculty of Engineering, University of Victoria.
