Ah, summer in Vermont, with warm sunshine, light breezes, and of course, great combinatorics with friends.  Summer Combo in Vermont is a (more or less) annual conference, bringing together regional combinatorialists for a day of collaboration, congeniality and an opportunity to learn about one another's investigations.

This is a small, informal conference that will begin between 9:00 and 10:00 and end sometime between 4:00 and 6:00, depending on the number of speakers.  A finalized schedule will be posted by June 23.

Keynote: This year's event will include a keynote talk by Thomas Tucker, Colgate University.

Talks: Please let us know if you would like to give a talk by sending a title and abstract to Jo Ellis-Monaghan before Friday, June 15th.  As soon as these are in, we will set up a schedule accordingly.  As in the past, we will try to accommodate everyone who wishes to share their work, but since this event has grown so, we may request that later submissions be shared through the poster session. 

Posters: As always, we welcome traditional research posters.  In addition, this year there is a new poster category, Combinatorics: The Next Generation for faculty to share ways they have engaged students in combinatorics (REU topics, class activities, internships, programs, etc.).  We especially encourage participation in this new venture.   As always, if you have (or know of) any students who have done nice work, please also bring them with a poster. Or without…but just please bring lots of students, we love to see them!!   Titles and abstracts for posters should be submitted to Greta Pangborn by Friday, June 29th.

Summer Combo is part of the Northeast Combinatorics Network and gratefully acknowledges financial support from the US National Science Foundation  (2018).
