About:

This workshop aims to provide an opportunity for PhD students and postdocs to form new collaborations and generate new research in the areas of Extremal and Probabilistic, Geometric, and Structural Combinatorics. 

Participants have been asked to submit open problems alongside their application, some of which will be selected to be presented and worked on during the workshop. We aim to include a diverse mix of participants over a range of stages of PhD and postdoctoral research, and to foster a friendly environment in which to work on exciting open problems. As well as most of the time being devoted to collaborative work, there will also be some short lectures and research talks. 

All participants will be required to pay a 150.00 GBP workshop registration fee.
