Workshop on Algebraic Design Theory and Hadamard Matrices (ADTHM)

  • Start Date: 07/08/2014
  • End Date: 07/11/2014
Location: 

University of Lethbridge

Description: 
This is the fourth in a series of conferences, the previous three being held at the University of Seville, Seville, Spain (2007); National University of Ireland, Galway, Ireland (2009); and RMIT, Melbourne, Australia (2011).

The 2014 (ADTHM) will be held at the University of Lethbridge in room TBA on Tuesday July 8 - Friday July 11, 2014. The purpose of the workshop is to bring together researchers and students interested in algebraic design theory, especially as it relates to Hadamard matrices and their applications, as well as in related areas in coding theory, combinatorics, quantum information theory and computer security. The audiences would learn about the latest developments in these areas, discuss the latest findings, take stock of what remains to be done on classical problems and explore different visions for setting the direction for future work.

We aim to ensure many of the talks are graduate student friendly, since it is very important to foster the growth of young mathematicians. This conference will allow experienced combinatorists to pass on their knowledge and skills in their craft to a younger generation. There will be some expository talks, in addition to research talks related to the latest developments.

In addition to the invited talks, participants are encouraged to contribute a talk (length of the presentation to be determined). Please submit the title and abstract for your talk by May 15, 2014. Alternately or additionally, we would be very pleased if participants would contribute posters. The meeting fee will be collected at the meeting. This fee is waived for the invited speakers, students and postdoctoral fellows. All participants are strongly encouraged to complete the registration form below once it becomes available.
