Combinatorics and Optimization 40th Conference (June 18-23 2007)Export this event to calendar

Monday, June 18, 2007 (all day) to Saturday, June 23, 2007 (all day)

In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the department, and the 50th anniversary of the university, the Department of Combinatorics and Optimization at the University of Waterloo hosted a six day conference June 18-23, 2007. The theme focussed on the six main research areas represented by the department: algebraic combinatorics; combinatorial optimization; continuous optimization; cryptography; graph theory; and quantum computing. The goal of the conference was to encourage and stimulate both further research within these areas, and cross-discipline interaction. We were greatly honoured by the 54 invited speakers whose participation ensured that this was an outstanding event for established research scientists and graduate students alike.
