Location: Queen's University

Event location: Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Queen’s University, Jeffery Hall 127 (https://www.queensu.ca/encyclopedia/j/jeffery-hall ) The Ontario Combinatorics Workshop is an annual meeting for researchers working in combinatorics to gather and share their latest research developments. The objective of this meeting is to have an atmosphere conducive to research discussion and collaboration. The setting of the meeting is informal to provide a friendly environment for students and post-doctoral fellows to present their results, to exchange ideas, and to gain exposure to various topics in combinatorics. It is also a place where students and faculties meet, which may foster future collaborations.

Format:

The Ontario Combinatorics Workshop will be a two-day event consisting of three invited talks and several sessions of contributed talks (primarily by graduate students and post-docs).

Peter Rodney Memorial Book Prize:

The best talk given by a student at the Ontario Combinatorics Workshop will be awarded the Peter Rodney Memorial Book Prize. This prize of a book and memorial book plate is given in honour of Dr. Peter Rodney (1965-1995). Dr. Peter Rodney graduated from McGill University, and then obtained his Masters and Ph.D degrees in Combinatorics, from the University of Toronto. He graduated in 1993 and went on to do postdoctoral research at the University of Vermont. He then continued to work in both the public and private sectors, using discrete mathematics, cryptography, and number theory. He had a deep appreciation for probability theory and was an avid card player. He died unexpectedly at the age of 30. His friends and family created a fund in his memory whose proceeds finance this book prize.

Invited speakers:

  • Benoit Larose, Champlain Regional College and Université du Québec à Montréal
