The Young Researchers in Combinatorics workshop is aimed at PhD students and early-career academics working in Extremal and Probabilistic Combinatorics and related fields. By building an environment of mostly young researchers, we hope the participants will feel free to contribute their ideas openly, thus preparing them to undertake their own research projects. 

The workshop consists mostly of working sessions in which participants collaborate on research problems, and a limited number of talks and lectures. All participants have the chance to contribute a subset of the following items to the workshop:

  • A research problem with suggested reading;

  • A lecture on a useful method;

  • A short talk about their own research.

We aim to host around 10 invited participants and about 25 PhD students for a week between 19 and 25 July 2020 at ICMS Edinburgh. Accommodation and refreshments are provided for all participants, as well as a conference dinner. A registration fee of 100GBP is payable by all non-invited participants.

Watch this space for more information. We expect to start accepting applications in October 2019.
