Graduate Student Combinatorics Conference 2020


University of California San Diego

Due to the recent spread of the corona virus, we have cancelled GSCC 2020 . We hope to host GSCC 2022 in San Diego.

Welcome to the 16th Graduate Student Combinatorics Conference (GSCC) official website! The GSCC is an annual conference hosted by graduate students for graduate students. Our goal is to create a space where current students in combinatorics can present their work in a constructive environment where we can all learn from each other, network across the country, and create a stronger sense of community across the discipline. In addition to featuring dozens of talks from our participants, the conference will also host several exceptional keynote speakers.

Keynote Speakers:

Carnegie Mellon University

Extremal Combinatorics

Washington University in St. Louis

Interplay between Combinatorics and Algebraic Geometry

University of British Columbia

Graph Theory, Discrete Geometry, and Combinatorial Number Theory


Registration is now open! The registration deadline is March 1st. The deadline to apply for funding has passed, but students are still welcome to register. Excess funds might be available after the conference.
