WVU-China Graph Theory and Combinatorics Workshop

Every year, the Department of Mathematics at WVU hosts about 10 long term visitors sponsored by Chinese Scholar Council to conduct research in graph theory and combinatorics. To strengthen our collaboration with Chinese Graph Theory and Combinatorics Society, the Department of Mathematics will host a WVU-China Workshop on Graph Theory and Combinatorics on Thursday, September 14, 2017.

All are welcome and are invited to attend the workshop.

Workshop Schedule

Location: Mountainlair Shenandoah Room
