Organizers

Wendy Myrvold and Frank Ruskey,
Department of Computer Science, University of Victoria.

Objectives

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.

Invited Speakers

The following speakers will present one hour talks.

Contributed Papers

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 wcgtc@math.uvic.ca, or by snail mail to the following address.

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.

Deadlines

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).

Pre-registration

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 pre-registration form as soon as possible.

Location

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.

Travel

Here are some useful links for out of town participants.

Sponsors

This workshop is sponsored and funded by the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences.
