Prairie Discrete Math Workshop 2017

Fri., Jun. 2, 2017 12:00 a.m. - Mon., Jun. 5, 2017 4:00 p.m.

Location: Living Skies Conference Centre, Lumsden, Saskatchewan, Canada

Website:  http://math.ihringer.org/pdmw17/

The Prairie Discrete Mathematics Workshop (PDMW) has been held annually since
1995. The main objective of the PDMW is to bring together researchers who work
in discrete mathematics and live in the prairie region (Manitoba, Saskatchewan
and Alberta), as well as neighbouring provinces and states. The goal of this
workshop is to present our current research and to provide opportunities for
networking and joint work.

The 2017 event will be a three-day workshop that will cover a range of
different areas of discrete mathematics and related areas of computer science.
This year the workshop will have a different format as we will be holding the
event at a retreat, the Living Skies Conference Centre in Lumsden near Regina,
Saskatchewan. The dates for this workshop are June 2, Friday (arrival), to
June 5, Monday (departure). Here you can find pictures of the conference
centre: http://livingskiesretreat.ca/

The confirmed invited speakers for this conference are:

  • Sarah Plosker, Brandon University
  • Petra Berenbrink, Simon Fraser University
  • Stephen Kirkland, University of Manitoba
  • Vaclav Linek, University of Winnipeg
  • Mohammad Adm, University of Regina
  • Ferdinand Ihringer, University of Regina

Participants are  encouraged to contribute talks. More information can be found on the
