About Discrete Math Days in the Northeast:

Discrete Math Days in the Northeast is a conference series that seeks to bring together a community of combinatorists in the northeast. We seek to provide a relaxed atmosphere, a friendly environment conducive to fostering collaboration accross institutions and disciplines.

We hold two meetings per year, one in the Fall and one in the spring. The meetings take place at different universities in the northeast. Most participants drive to and from the conference on the same day. We hope that by holding meetings at different universities it will make it possible for researchers with higher teaching loads and those with limited institutional support to attend, and helped them to keep up with research in their field.

More information about the conference series can be found here.

Local organizers:

Sergi Elizalde, Rosa Orellana, and Jay Pantone , Peter Winkler.

We thank the Mathematics Department at Dartmouth and the NSA for their financial support.
