About the Conference...

Discrete mathematics is a relatively young branch of the mathematical sciences, with a wide range of challenging research problems and important applications in industry. Discrete mathematics has applications to all fields of computer science and to many aspects of engineering, the physical sciences, and the biological sciences. It is used extensively in telecommunications, information processing, and manufacturing, and many businesses and industries use techniques of discrete optimization to improve the efficiency of their operations.

Discrete mathematics is a dynamic and rapidly expanding field and is experiencing explosive growth in both theory and applications. Researchers in discrete mathematics have established important connections with mainstream areas of pure and applied mathematics, and as consequence, research techniques and problems are drawn from a wide range of different fields, including algebra, topology, geometry, probability, analysis, and logic.

The purpose of this conference is to highlight the major theoretical developments in the field and the most significant of the new applications of discrete mathematics to problems arising in industry and business. The conference also seeks to bring together participants from the many different environments where discrete mathematics is developed and applied.
