Discrete mathematics is a branch of the mathematical sciences, with a wide range of challenging
research problems and important applications in industry. Discrete mathematics has applications to all
fields of computer science, and to the physical and biological sciences. It is used extensively in
telecommunications, information processing and manufacturing, and many businesses and industries
use techniques of discrete optimization to improve the efficiency of their operations.

Discrete mathematics is a dynamic field in both theory and applications. Researchers in discrete
mathematics have established important connections with mainstream areas of pure and applied
mathematics, and as a consequence, research techniques and problems are drawn from a wide range of
different fields, including algebra, topology, geometry, probability, analysis, and logic.

The purpose of this conference is to highlight the major theoretical advances in the field, the
development of new tools for discrete mathematics, and the most significant of the new applications of
discrete mathematics to problems arising in industry and business. The conference also seeks to bring
together participants from the many different environments where discrete mathematics is developed
and applied.
