The 8th Lake Michigan Workshop on Combinatorics and Graph Theory will benefit graduate students and junior researchers in the field of discrete mathematics. It will be built around two sets of three tutorial lectures, focusing on state-of-the-art techniques and results that the speakers feel are underrepresented in typical graduate sequences, and on emerging techniques on which the speakers are particularly qualified to expound. There will also be short talks by students and younger faculty members, and a problem session. There will be ample unscheduled time during the weekend
The tutorial speakers for the 2023 workshop will be
• Will Perkins (Georgia Institute of Technology), who will speak on Statistical physics methods in combinatorics, and
• Stephanie van Willigenburg (University of British Columbia), who will speak on Coloring with a limited paintbox (the chromatic symmetric function).
Thanks to funding from NSF and Notre Dame, we anticipate supporting the travel and accommodation of junior participants, particularly those from the Midwest/Great Lakes/Great Plains area. More details will be available at the workshop website in early February.
