About the KPPY Combinatorics Workshop


The KPPY Combinatorics Seminar is currently held about 4-5 times a year, and rotates among 3 host schools:
  • Kyungpook National University, in Daegu,
  • Pusan National University, in Pusan, and
  • Yeungnam University, in Daegu.

The seminar is usually held on Saturday (occasionally Monday or Friday) from 11am until 5 or 5:30, and consists of five 50 minute talks in any area of (or closely related to) combinatorics and graph theory.

Lunch and dinner are (usually) provided, dinner going from about 6:30 to 8:30.

The audience is mixture of graduate students and researchers from Korea and abroad.

The seminar started in 2005 as the PNU-Postech Algebraic Combinatorics Seminar. In 2010 Kyungpook joined the seminar and it became the the KNU-PNU-Postech Combinatorics Seminar. In 2011 Yeungnam joined, and it became the KPPY Combinatorics Seminar. More recently the host institutions have been somewhat fluid, but we have kept the name for historical reasons.
