The Departments of Computer Science and Mathematical Sciences at Appalachian State University are pleased to announce the Eighth North Carolina Mini-Conference on Graph Theory, Combinatorics, and Computing. The conference will be held on Friday, April 11th, 2003. We have a preliminary schedule of talks.

The conference will be held at the Plemmons Student Union Building. Parking is available at First Baptist Church on King Street (hang tags are needed). We plan to have someone in the church lot to direct parking and give out hang tags.

The main goal of this conference is to provide a venue in which students can present their work, and so we especially encourage students (undergraduate and graduate) to consider giving talks. Each speaker will have 20 minutes for his/her presentation with 5 additional minutes for questions.

A conference luncheon will take place again this year. During the luncheon, participants will have the opportunity to interact with one another -- discussing areas of common interest and making valuable connections with others in our region. The luncheon will be free for everyone who has registered before April 8th. After lunch we will hear from our featured speaker, Mike Henning.

Our aim is for this conference to be beneficial to both the faculty and the students of our region. We hope that you will be able to be with us on this day, and we hope that you will encourage others to attend.

To register for the conference, please complete the online registration form. Directions to campus will be sent to you in early April.
