Algebraic combinatorics in LaCIM for CRM’s 50th anniversary

On the occasion of CRM’s 50th anniversary in 2018, the Laboratoire de Combinatoire et d’Informatique Mathématique (LaCIM) organizes a month of scientific activities to discuss the state-of-the-art and manifold interconnections between the lively topics that have long been at the core of research at LaCIM: algebraic combinatorics, combinatorial representation theory, Coxeter groups theory, combinatorics of words, discrete geometry, enumerative combinatorics, mathematical computer science and their applications.

The scientific activities will be articulated around the confirmed participations as researchers in residence of Mireille Bousquet-Mélou (LaBRI, Université de Bordeaux) and Ezra Miller (Duke University); together with a week-long international conference to be held from the 24th to the 28th of September 2018. The schedule is as follows:

September 17-22, 2018: Series of lectures by Ezra Miller (Duke University)

September 24-28, 2018: Conference Algebra and Combinatorics at LaCIM

October 1-5: Series of lectures by Mireille Bousquet-Mélou (CNRS, Université de Bordeaux)

Further information and registration details are available on the following website:

Women in mathematics in LaCIM

In occasion of the International Women’s Day 2018, the Committee for Women in Mathematics of the International Mathematical Union produced the film the Faces of Women in Mathematics.

Watch our students and postdoc Véronique Bazier-Matte, Pauline Hubert, Nadia Lafrenière, Mélodie Lapointe,  Stéphanie Schanck and Elise Vandomme them at the 11:07min.

Welcome to LaCIM

The LaCIM  (Laboratoire de Combinatoire et d’Informatique Mathématique) is a research center gathering researchers, postdoctoral fellows, as well as graduate and undergraduate students interested in discrete mathematics and theoretical computer science.

The LaCIM gathers about forty researchers, and maintain many close collaborations with most of the major research centers in this field, in particular in Canada, in France and in USA.

The LaCIM is associated with the Canada Research Chair in algebra, combinatorics and discrete mathematics of Université du Québec à Montréal, as well as the Mathematics and Computer Science Departments of the same institution. It is also one of the eight laboratoires member of the Centre de Recherche Mathématiques (CRM).
