date: July 5th - July 6th 2010 (immediately before the Canadian Undergraduate Mathematics Conference)
talk location: DC 1302 (Davis Center)
sign in: Breakfast and sign in will be on Monday at 8:30 AM in DC 1301 (The Fishbowl)
Primary Speaker: Carsten Thomassen, Technical University of Denmark
Other speakers and tutorial leaders will be faculty members and graduate students in the Department of Combinatorics and Optimization. There will be 8 presentations, 2 by Carsten Thomassen, Technical University of Denmark, and others by Robin Christian, Mathieu Guay-Paquet, Nick Harvey, Penny Haxell, David Wagner, Nick Wormald, all from the C&O Department.
The aim is to provide undergraduate students in mathematics or computer science with an introduction to combinatorics, giving the students a flavour of research that is ongoing in the department. This will include talks and guided tutorials in graph theory, combinatorial algorithms and algebraic combinatorics.
There is no registration fee. Meals will be provided for all participants. We will also provide support for travel and other local expenses for a number of students from outside Waterloo. This should make it convenient to stay in Waterloo for the remainder of the week in order to attend the Canadian Undergraduate Mathematics Conference July 6 - 10.
The Summer School will run from 9:30 - 5:00 on Monday July 5 and 9:00 - 4:00 on Tuesday July 6.
