Postgraduate Combinatorial Conference 2015

 The 24th Postgraduate Combinatorial Conference will be held at Queen Mary University of London from Monday 13th to Wednesday 15th April 2015.

The Postgraduate Combinatorial Conference (PCC) is a conference organised by, and for, current research students in all areas of combinatorics and discrete mathematics, under the direction of the British Combinatorial Committee and also sponsored by the London Mathematical Society. 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 PhD students to meet and discuss their research in a relaxed environment, to gain practice at presenting their research outside of their own department, and to meet pre-eminent researchers in their area. Each student is encouraged to contribute by giving a short talk on their research (expository talks welcome). Talks last 20 minutes plus questions.

Invited Speakers:

Prof Imre Leader, University of Cambridge.

Prof Peter Cameron, University of St Andrews and Queen Mary University of London.

Dr Julia Wolf, University of Bristol

Fees and financial support:

Registration fee: £50. The conference dinner, which will be held on the 14th of April, has 30 places and costs an additional £10. Please use the link on the left to register. Note that there are no early bird tickets left.

Some financial support is available for UK-based attendees. We will aim to cover all reasonable travel expenses and/or a portion of accommodation expenses, for all UK-based PhD students. Priority will be given to those with no other source of funding; please email us at pcc2015@qmul.ac.uk to inform us if this is the case.

Venue:

The conference will be held at the School of Mathematical Sciences, Queen Mary University of London, Mile End Road, London E1 4NS, see http://www.maths.qmul.ac.uk/about-us/travel-details for directions.

Accommodation:

There are a number of budget hotels located nearby, see http://www.residences.qmul.ac.uk/alternative/hotels/ for details. In addition to this list, there is a Travelodge located in Bethnal Green, a 15 min walk from campus. You may find it a lot cheaper to share a double room.
