Combinatorial algebra meets algebraic combinatorics (2012)

Ninth annual meeting

January 20 – 22, 2012

Gascom (2010)

This is the seventh conference in a series initiated in 1994 in Bordeaux (France). The conference topic is the random and exhaustive generation of combinatorial objects and bijective combinatorics with focus on theoretical approaches. In particular, the combinatorial, algebraic and algorithmic aspects are emphasized. Relations with other parts of mathematics, combinatorics, computer algebra, computer science, physics and biology are considered.

Sage days 25.5 (2010)

Sandwiched between the lacim 2010 – 20th aniversary and gascom conferences, this day is an opportunity for their participants to learn more about sage. Introductory talks will be given and possibly talks or discussions on sage adapted to the audience of lacim 2010 (algebraic combinatorics, theoretical computer science, bioinformatic, physics and number theory) and gascom (generation of combinatorial objects and bijective combinatorics).

Lacim 2010 (2010)

Nous célébrons cette année une étape importante dans la vie de notre laboratoire. après 20 ans d’existence, les membres du lacim poursuivent des recherches actives sur les aspects combinatoires de l’algebre, en informatique théorique, bioinformatique, physique et théorie des nombres. pour cette occasion nous avons invité des conférenciers renommés pour présenter les progrès récents dans les domaines de recherches auquels les membres du lacim ont contribué dans les dernières décennies.

15th iapr international conference on discrete geometry for computer imagery (2009)

Discrete geometry is emerging as a theory from ground work in automated representation and processing of digitized objects. from image synthesis to image processing, a wide range of concepts have improved the technics leading not only to a better understanding of the mathematical structure of discrete objects but also in faster and more accurate implementations. it covers a wide range of domains from scientific to artistic fields and it mainly deals with topological and geometric descriptions of digitized objects providing both a theoretical and computational framework for computer imaging.

Journées pierre leroux (2006)

5th international conference on words (2005)

Le sujet de la conférence est l’étude des mots avec une emphase sur le point de vue théorique. en particulier les aspects combinatoires algebriques et algorithmiques sont privilégiés. les motivations peuvent provenir d’autres domaines tels que l’informatique théorique.

LaCIM 2000

Conférence organisée pour souligner les 10 ans du lacim

Les actes de colloque sont publiés par le lacim.

4th international conference on formal power series and algebraic combinatorics (1992)
