A new series of short online talks organised by PhD students, for PhD students researching combinatorics, discrete maths, or computing science (although all are welcome).
The Postgraduate Combinatorial Conference is an established conference organised for, and by, current research students in all areas of combinatorial and discrete mathematics, under the auspices of the British Combinatorial Committee. The PCC is mainly aimed at UK-based students, but is also open to those from abroad. The aim of the conference is to allow research students to discuss their research in a relaxed environment, to gain practice at presenting their research outside of their own department, and to meet other young researchers in their area.
This year, we are beginning a virtual talk series, held every one or two weeks, beginning mid-November 2020.
The series continues the same aim, of allowing research students to present in an informal setting. If you are interested in giving a talk, please contact one of the organisers (on the right). If you'd like to listen to interesting research in combinatorics, discrete maths and computing science, or get to know fellow PhD students in the UK, then sign up to our mailing list, or watch this space!
