Canadian Discrete and Algorithmic Mathematics Conference

The dual graphs drawn in the projective plane symbolize the relationship between CanaDAM and the SIAM DM conference. The idea and the artwork are due to Jacobus Swarts.

The Canadian Discrete and Algorithmic ​Mathematics Conference (CanaDAM) is a biennial ​meeting, held in odd numbered years, that brings ​together researchers from the various disciplines ​with which discrete and algorithmic mathematics ​interact. Ideally, the meeting site will alternate ​between the western half and eastern half of ​Canada. The conference was pioneered by Derek ​Corneil, Daniel Panario, and Pavol Hell, who ​solicited the help of many discrete mathematics ​researchers across Canada to realize it.

The general topic of the conference is the theory and application of discrete ​structures. Its goal is to highlight the most salient trends in the field, which has ​close links to diverse areas such as cryptography, computer science, large-scale ​networks and biology. Particular areas of interest include: graphs and digraphs, ​hypergraphs, matroids, ordered sets, designs, coding theory, enumeration, ​combinatorics of words, discrete optimization, discrete and computational ​geometry, lattice point enumeration, combinatorial algorithms, computational ​complexity, and applications of discrete and algorithmic mathematics, including ​(but not limited to) web graphs, computational biology, telecommunication ​networks, and information processing.

CanaDAM uses the same general format as the SIAM Conference on Discrete ​Mathematics, which is a biennial conference held in even numbered years. There ​are typically nine plenary talks and a collection of invited minisymposia on topics ​consistent with conference themes. Participation in the conference is by ​attending, submitting a contributed talk, or by proposing or participating in a ​minisymposium.
