2018 Colloquia in Combinatorics

Two consecutive one-day events hosted by QMUL and LSE

2018 sees the twelfth year of the Colloquia in Combinatorics: each year, we present a dozen talks covering a wide range of topics of interest to all those working in combinatorics or related fields.

As always, this year’s colloquia provided very good instruction and entertainment
