Discrete Math Days in the NorthEast is a series of one-day research meetings that seeks to bring together a community of combinatorialists in the NorthEast. We seek to provide a relaxed atmosphere, a friendly environment conducive to fostering collaboration across institutions and disciplines.

We hold two meetings per year, one in the Fall and one in the Spring. The meetings take place at different universities in the NorthEast. Most participants drive to and from the conference on the same day. We hope that by holding meetings at different universities it will make it possible for researchers with higher teaching loads and those with limited institutional support to attend, and help them to keep up with research in their field.

We also seek to provide a non-intimidating entry into the mathematics community for graduate students and advanced undergraduates in the region.

Discrete Math Days in the NorthEast is organized by the Northeast Combinatorics Network and funded by the US National Science Foundation and the UMass MSP research support fund.
