The organizing committee is pleased to announce the upcoming FUN Workshop on Discrete Mathematics to be held at Carleton University on Friday July 22. It will begin at 2pm in Room 4351 Herzberg Laboratories. The three speakers joining us have generously volunteered their time. I am excited to hear them speak!
This event was organized jointly with the Carleton University Math Society (http://www.mathsoc.carleton.ca) and the Fields Institute. Michelle Kovesi is President of the Math Society and we had only recently met her at the Canadian Undergraduate Mathematics Conference (CCEM/CUMC) less than a month ago. With such a limited time frame, Michelle had agreed to make local arrangements. Professor Mattias Neufang also recommended that we collaborate with Carleton PhD candidate David Thomson. David is a past organizer for CUMC2009 and the Ontario Representative for the Canadian Mathematical Society (CMS). He has been extremely resourceful as a local organizer while conducting his graduate research. David helped to convince the CMS to provided support for this FUN event. It has been a true pleasure putting this together and I look forward to seeing them on July 22.
Some of the non-local students will be touring around Ottawa during the evening of the workshop as well as the days following.
