The 25th Postgraduate Combinatorial Conference (PCC) will be held in London on 4th-6th June 2018.

The PCC is an established conference organised by, and for, current research students in all areas of combinatorial and discrete mathematics, under the auspices of the British Combinatorial Committee. The PCC is mainly aimed at UK-based students, but also open to those from abroad.

The aim of the conference is to allow research students to discuss their research in a relaxed environment, to gain practice at presenting their research outside of their own department, and to meet other young researchers in their area. Each student is encouraged to contribute by giving a talk which will last 25 minutes (including 5 minutes question and answer time).


The conference will be hosted at The London School of Economics and Political Science.
Venue: Parish Hall,  PAR.1.02 (Map)

Daniela Kühn, University of Birmingham

Maura Paterson, Birkbeck, University of London

Travel and Accommodation

We hope to be able to reimburse all students’ travel costs up to a maximum amount of around £75 (details follow).

Since we expect that most participants prefer to organise their own accommodation, using AirBnB or similar, we haven’t booked any specific accommodation for this meeting. For those that prefer a traditional hotel, here are some options near the conference.

Participants with children may wish to apply for a Childcare Support Grant from the LMS.
