2008 SIAM Conference on Discrete Mathematics at UVM CEMS
Release Date: 06-17-2008
The University of Vermont is the site for the 2008 Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) Conference on Discrete Mathematics, June 16-19. Sponsored by the UVM Department of Mathematics and Statistics in the College of Engineering and Mathematics (CEMS), the conference has drawn over 250 mathematicians from around the world.
The 2008 SIAM Activity Group (SIAG) on Discrete Mathematics focuses on combinatorics, graph theory, cryptography, discrete optimization, mathematical programming, coding theory, information theory, game theory, and theoretical computer science, including algorithms, complexity, circuit design, robotics, and parallel processing. This activity group provides an opportunity to unify pure discrete mathematics and areas of applied research such as computer science, operations research, combinatorics, and the social sciences.
This year's speakers include: Bojan Mohar (Simon Fraser University, Canada); Chris D. Godsil (University of Waterloo, Canada); Adam Marcus (Georgia Institute of Technology); David S. Johnson (AT&T Labs); Baruch Schieber (IBM T.J. Watson Research Center); Ann Condon (University of British Columbia, Canada); Milena Mihail (Georgia Institute of Technology); Patric Ostergard (Helsinki University of Technology, Finland); and Angelika Steger (Institute of Theoretical Computer Science, ETH, Zurich Switzerland).
All sessions are being held in the UVM Dudley H. Davis Center.
