Atlanta Lecture Series (ALS) in Combinatorics and Graph Theory

Atlanta Lecture Series XXII (ALS 22) at Georgia State University, 11/3-11/4, 2018


The series of Mini-Conferences has been alternatively hosted by Emory University, Georgia Institute of Technology, and Georgia State University, three major research universities in Atlanta metropolitan. Each Mini-Conference features one or more principle speakers and several other outstanding combinatorics/graph theorists, as well as some promising young researchers.
