Dr. Jenny O Leary who is a careers consultant has agreed to give a talk on 'Life After Your PhD'.
The Postgraduate Combinatorial Conference is aimed at research students in all areas of combinatorics and discrete mathematics who are currently working on their PhD. It allows students to meet and talk about their research, and related subjects. Most talks are contributed by the students themselves, apart from talks by invited speakers. Prof. Ian Stewart , Prof. Imre Leader and Prof. Olivier Hudry have agreed to attend as invited speakers.
The conference is organised under the auspices of the British Combinatorial Committee and the Centre for Discrete Mathematics and its Applications (DIMAP). Our sponsors include the London Mathematical Society and the Open University.
Students are encouraged to give a short talk about their research lasting 20 minutes. Topics include for example graph theory, enumerative combinatorics, design theory, coding theory, cryptography, partial orders, extremal set theory, theoretical computer science and model theory.
The 2008 conference is the 19th Postgraduate Combinatorial Conference and it is being held at the University of Warwick. The organisers are Haris Aziz (local organizer), Manuela Heuer, Emil Vaughan, and Simon Griffiths.
Special thanks to Ms. Catherine Pillet for her wonderful assistance during the PCC2008 organization.
