The Combinatorial Potlatch is an irregularly scheduled, floating, one-day conference. It has been held for many years at various locations around Puget Sound and southern British Columbia, and is an opportunity for combinatorialists in the region to gather informally for a day of invited talks and conversation. While most who attend work in, or near, the Puget Sound basin, all are welcome. Typically there are three talks given by speakers who are visiting or new to the area, along with breaks for coffee and lunch. Many participants remain for dinner at a local restaurant or pub.

Abstracts / Downloads / Reports:

All talks will be held in Room 1700 of SFU's Harbour Centre on the "Concourse Level," with registration and breaks nearby. See the Getting There section for exact locations and directions.
