Nordic Combinatorial Conference (NORCOM)
Background and History
The Nordic Combinatorial Conference (NORCOM) is a triennial
scientific meeting covering the fields of combinatorics
and discrete mathematics, interpreted broadly,
with the arrangement rotated among the five Nordic
countries. The conference is a venue for Nordic as
well as foreign combinatorialists to get together and
interact in a relaxed atmosphere. Plenary talks
are given by distinguished international scholars, and
short presentations are given by participants.
The inaugural NORCOM meeting took place in Norway in 1981,
Utstein Abbey near Stavanger, and was followed
by a second meeting in Sweden in 1984, at
Hässelby Slott in Stockholm. For the programs,
abstracts, and lists of participants of these two meetings, see
for the first one and
for the second one.
