February 26-27, 2011



Emory University, the Georgia Institute of Technology and Georgia State University, with support from the National Security Agency and the National Science  Foundation, and Georgia Tech's program in Algorithms, Combinatorics, and Optimization will host a series of 9 mini-conferences from November, 2010 - April 2013. The second in the series will be held at Georgia State University on February 26-27, 2011.

The conferences will stress a variety of areas and feature one prominent researcher giving 2 fifty minute lectures and 4 outstanding regional researchers each giving one fifty minute lecture. There will also be several 25 minute lecturers by young reseachers or graduate students.
