Discrete mathematics is a branch of math that has applications to computer science. It includes the study of networks, experimental design, and the encoding of data. The prairie provinces have a number of strong research groups within this field. The distances can make it hard to interact, so these groups need a recurring workshop to bring them together in order to exchange ideas and to expand the excellent research that already takes place here.


The "Prairie Discrete Math Workshop" was established to fill this need. The first gathering was held in Regina in 2002 and there have been workshops held almost every year since in various locations across the prairies and into BC, including Regina, Lethbridge, Winnipeg, Kelowna, Calgary, and Kamloops (with two or three workshops having been held in several of these locations). Unfortunately, no workshop was organised in 2014, so this represents both the first time for the workshop to be held in Banff and a revival of this workshop.
