Fourth Prairie Discrete Mathematics Workshop

The workshop builds on the success of the first Prairie Discrete Math Workshop organized by Shaun Fallat and Brian Alspach and held at the University of Regina in Regina, Saskatchewan, in early October 2003, and the two following ones held at the University of Lethbridge in October 2004, and the University of Winnipeg in August 2005. The intention is to hold workshops on an annual basis at various prairie universities for the purpose of getting together combinatorists from (at least) Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta and adjacent States for a relatively informal workshop. Thanks to the U. of Manitoba's PDM organizing team, who had initially agreed to host this year's PDM, for agreeing to the change of venue so that a tribute to Jim Liu could be held at his home university.

Parking for participants is available at the North West Parking Lot (first left turn after the four way stop sign) and it costs $6 per day to park there. See campus map.
Note that scenic Waterton National Park in the Rocky Mountains, about an hour and twenty minutes drive south-west of Lethbridge, is a highly recommended outing for those wishing to extend their stay with some pre or post workshop sightseeing.
If you plan to attend please register.
There is no registration fee, but we would like to know who is planning to attend so that we can judge the numbers for the dinner, program, etc.
There will be a workshop dinner in tribute to Jim Liu on the evening of August 1.
