Moscow Conference on Combinatorics, Graph Theory and Applications 2021

See the schedule for the two online blocks of workshops and talks

MoCCA '20

Moscow Conference on Combinatorics and Applications
[ Conference on Graphs, Networks and their Applications ]

The aim of the conference is to bring together specialists in extremal combinatorics, graph and hypergraph theory, additive combinatorics, complex networks, random graphs and models, approximation algorithms, and optimization. The meeting will serve as a platform for the discussion of various challenging problems in the area, both theoretical and those that have applications in the industry.

The conference will have plenary talks and invited mini-symposia. Previously we organised the Conference on graphs, networks and their applications in 2019 and the workshop with the same name in 2018. The event is organised by the Phystech-School of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science and Laboratory of Combinatorial and Geometric Structures at MIPT.

MoCCA'20 was originally planned for May 2020, but was postponed due to the pandemic. We decided to hold it mostly online roughly one year later: in May - July of 2021. For the moment, we planned to hold a big part of the conference online, distributed over two weeks. Those that would be able and willing to come to MIPT, however, are welcome to do so, and we will do our best to help them with the organisation. Please contact us in case you need some assistance.

We also hope to have a physical meeting, which we tentatively schedule for September 6-12.
