Jan. 14 - Jan. 17, 2002
POSTECH, Pohang, Korea
Registration and Abstract was Due on JULY 31, 2001. Last updated 2001
For the late registration and participation from Korea : Please contact email@example.com
* Conference Poster * Current Wheather Map in Korea
Combinatorics, Combinatorial Matrix Theory and related areas of Computational and core Matrix Theory.
Combinatorial and Computational Mathematics Center at Pohang University of Science and Technology (Com^2 MaC), a science research center funded by Korean Science and Engineering Foundation (KOSEF), is organizing the conference to bring together researchers with interests in the interactions between combinatorics and matrix theory. It is anticipated that the conference will provide a forum for interaction between a broad group of scientists and engineers with diverse interests in combinatorics and matrix theory.

At the Pohang Airport, take a taxi (costs about $8) and tell your driver "I want to go Postech, Graduate School for Information Technology (CMT Conference Site)". If you find any difficulty, call (HP) 011-9795-3561 at the airport. We will answer you.
There will be the Registration desk and Campus phone with contact numbers from Jan. 13th to 17th at the 1st floor of "Graduate School for Information Technology (Conference Site)". If you come to this desk any time in Jan. 13 and 14, you can pick up your room key and we will try to give you a ride to your room.
We will try to have a fairly wide geographical distribution of speakers who are doing significant work in combinatorial matrix theory, and who could benefit from interaction at a conference.
