At a nice meeting here in beautiful Charlottetown. After some rain on Saturday, it is now gloriously sunny. The Canadian Mathematical Society summer meeting is one of the largest meetings of mathematicians in Canada. There are public lectures, various keynotes, business meetings, and the scientific session.
Our session is on Graphs, Hypergraphs, and Designs. It is a bit of everything, and one of the largest collection of discrete math talks in any CMS session ever. There are talks on pursuit games like Cops and Robbers, graph coloring, combinatorial designs, and algebraic combinatorics.
I spoke on the game of Zombies and Survivors and here are my slides… I may have gotten a bit carried away with the horror theme!
There is also some exciting news we just heard about: the next Canadian Discrete and Algorithmic Mathematics (CanaDAM) conference will be held at Ryerson University in 2017. Toronto is fabulous in the summer, and we are looking forward to welcoming our discrete math colleagues to Ryerson at CanaDAM.
