All Day


We are excited to announce the Graduate Student Combinatorics Conference (GSCC) 2021. The GSCC is an annual conference for graduate students in any area of combinatorics. Graduate students at all levels are encouraged to give a 20-minute talk on their research.

This year, the University of Minnesota is delighted to host the GSCC (virtually) on the weekend of April 23-25, 2021. Apart from numerous anticipated graduate student talks, we will have three terrific keynote speakers (Federico Ardila, Steve Butler, Gordana Todorov), and plan to introduce a couple of other activities to build community between graduate students, including:

  • an open problem session where conference participants can propose or hear about open problems, and

  • a mathematical puzzle hunt written by the puzzle company Solving Fun.

In order to ensure that we have enough Zoom capacity for all participants, we are asking participants to register by March 26. If you would like to give a talk, please indicate that on the registration form when you register. Please feel free to forward this announcement to anyone who may be interested.
