The Fortieth Southeastern International Conference on Combinatorics, Graph Theory, and Computing will be held March 2-6, 2009 in the Student Union at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, FL.
The main campus is located three miles from the Atlantic Ocean, on an 850-acre site in Boca Raton , south of Palm Beach and north of Fort Lauderdale and Miami. The climate is subtropical with an average temperature of 75 degrees.
Notice to Presenters: We expect to have computers and computer projectors available in the lecture rooms. However, we have a zero tolerance policy for delays caused by computer failure so you must have backup materials available in case there is a problem with the computer presentation.
Celebrating its 40th year, the Conference continues in the spirit of earlier conferences in Baton Rouge and Boca Raton. It brings together mathematicians and others interested in combinatorics, graph theory and computing, and their interactions. The Conference lectures and contributed papers, as well as the opportunities for informal conversations, have proved to be of great interest to other scientists and analysts employing these mathematical sciences in their professional work in business, industry, and government.
The Conference proceedings, which appear in the series, Congressus Numerantium, have been invaluable in the dissemination of important advances in the represented disciplines. The Conference continues to promote better understanding of the roles of modern applied mathematics, combinatorics, and computer science to acquaint the investigator in each of these areas with the various techniques and algorithms which are available to assist in his or her research. Each discipline has contributed greatly to the others, and the purpose of the Conference is to decrease even further the gaps between the fields.
For our 40 th Conference, we have a special program of exceptional invited speakers. Speakers confirmed to date include Fan Chung, Nathaniel Dean, Ron Graham, Heiko Harborth, Stephen Milne, Ron Mullin, Fred Roberts, and Ralph Stanton. The organizing committee (Frederick Hoffman, Ronald C. Mullin, James Oxley, and Ralph G. Stanton) cordially invite participation in our Conference by interested persons in the academic community as well as business, industry and government.
