GRWC 2014 - Denver, CO

July 27 – August 9, 2014 --- Denver, CO

Co - Hosted by

The University of Colorado Denver and

The University of Denver
A 2-week collaborative research workshop for experienced graduate students from all areas of combinatorics.  Students will work in collaborative groups with faculty and postdocs on research problems from across the discipline.   The workshop will also host a variety of professional development workshops to prepare students and postdocs for the job hunt and their transition to the professoriate. 

The workshop will be centered on problems developed and presented by students and postdocs, who will work together with a faculty mentor from the organizing committee.  Please see the Workshop Format page for more information about the structure of the workshop.

Postdoc/Student Funding & Application Instructions
We anticipate funding (travel, meal stipend and lodging) for up to 15 graduate students and 2 postdocs from outside of the organizing institutions.  Please see the Application Instructions page for instructions on how to apply. 

Please email with any questions.
