Program Description: 
The program focuses on graph polynomials, broadly construed to encompass polynomial invariant generalizations to embedded graphs, matroids, delta-matroids, etc. Graph polynomials encode combinatorial information and thus distinguish classes of graphs. The fundamental problem is how to extract this information. The workshop will both build a general theory of P-equivalence and determine P-equivalence for specific polynomials via the following three themes and their outcomes: (1) Instances and Data – generating P-equivalent and P-unique families, (2) Generating a general Theory for P-equivalence, (3) P-equivalent hierarchies – bridging the previous themes.
