The Student Symposium in Combinatorics is an online symposium organized by combinatorics research students for like-minded research students and others to participate. We invite students at all stages of their studies to attend this online symposium. This is a friendly environment for students to discuss problems and present their research to other students around the world. Students in any area of combinatorics, as well as anyone who uses combinatorics in their research, are invited and encouraged to attend and to give a talk on their research. For those who are earlier in their studies, we also welcome you to talk about your field and the research you plan to do.

The symposium will include plenary talks given by invited speaker, contributed talks, panel discussions and social gatherings. It will be run with two main sessions per day, to allow students from different time zone to attend. The ‘morning session’ will run approximatively from 8am to 11am AEST (6pm to 9pm Eastern Time, 11pm to 2am Central European Time). The ‘afternoon session’ will run approximatively from 7pm to 10pm AEST (5am to 8am Eastern Time, 10am to 1pm Central European Time). Invited and contributed talks will be included in both sessions depending on registrations and speakers preferences.
