The conference will explore new research directions within the fields of
sequence design and algebraic error-correcting codes, including radar
applications of sequence design, algebraic constructions of space-time
codes, and pseudocodewords. We aim to bring together mathematicians and
engineers, and to increase the pool of early career researchers who
appreciate the power of discrete mathematics and the important role that it
plays in emerging engineering disciplines. We will also host a broad
forward-looking discussion that will address identification of outstanding
problems, the different forms of publication in constructive combinatorics,
and reward systems across industry and academia.

In parallel with the conference, Robert Calderbank (Princeton University)and Ingrid Daubechies (Princeton University) will each deliver a PIMS Distinguished Lecture.

Limited support is available, especially for students, postdoctoral fellows,
and other early career researchers.

The conference will take place the week after the
2006 IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory in Seattle and the
9th meeting of the Canadian Number Theory Association in Vancouver.
