22nd Postgraduate Combinatorial Conference

Some photos from the conference are now available on the downloads page. Next year's PCC will be a Royal Holloway, organized by Andrew McDowell.

The 22nd Postgraduate Combinatorial Conference will be held at the University of Warwick 15th-17th August 2012.

The Postgraduate Combinatorial Conference (PCC) is an established annual conference organised by, and for, 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 also open to those from abroad.

The aim of the conference is to allow research 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 talk which will last 25 minutes (including 5 minutes question and answer time)
