The Ontario Combinatorics Workshop is a meeting for researchers working in combinatorics from Ontario and surrounding areas to gather and share their latest research developments. The objective of this meeting is to have an atmosphere conducive to research discussion and collaboration. The setting of the meeting is informal to provide a friendly environment for students and post-doctoral fellows to present their results, to exchange ideas, and to gain exposure to various topics in combinatorics. It is also a place where students and faculties meet, which may foster future collaborations.

Title: Radical Sylvester-Gallai theorem for cubics - and beyondSpeaker: Rafael Oliveira Affiliation: University of Waterloo Location: MC 5501 or please contact Emma Watson for Zoom link
In 1893, Sylvester asked a basic question in combinatorial geometry: given a finite set of distinct points $v_1, \ldots, v_m \in \R^N$ such that the line defined by any pair of distinct points $v_i, v_j$ contains a third point $v_k$ in the set, must all points in the set be collinear?
