3rd IMA Conference on Discrete Mathematics
Monday April 4 - Tuesday April 5, 2022
University of Essex, Colchester, UK

Discrete mathematics is a branch of the mathematical sciences which
poses a wide range of challenging research problems in its own right
and gives rise to important applications in other fields. This 3rd IMA
conference on discrete mathematics, following on from the previous two
at Derby, will consider a range of aspects of discrete mathematics,
both pure and applied. It is open to researchers working with
mathematical structures and abstract constructs, and to those involved
in the theory and practice of discrete mathematics. Results which
establish links between different areas of discrete mathematics are
welcomed, as are applications and the development of new tools. The
purpose of this event is to highlight progress in the field through
the development of novel theories, methodologies, and applications
accordingly, and to inspire future work.

Topics of discrete mathematics including, but not limited to, the
following: Graph Theory; Extremal Combinatorics: Additive
Combinatorics: Probabilistic Combinatorics: Enumerative and Analytic
Combinatorics: Matroids: Combinatorial Algorithms: Designs and Finite
Geometries: Ordered and partially ordered sets: Set Systems:

discrete probability and number theory: Applications.

Papers will be accepted (or not) for the conference based on a short
300 word abstract for oral presentation. Abstracts should be submitted
online at If your abstract is a less
conventional part of discrete mathematics, please try to make clear
how your abstract relates to discrete mathematics. Please state
whether your title is intended for oral or poster presentation (poster
presentations are optional). Oral presentations are expected to be 25

greenhouse gas (GHG) concentrations in three-dimensional plumes
dispersed in urban environments using optical (Lidar) remote sensing
measurements. To achieve real-time performance the project will
explore effective ways to reduce the dimensionality of the optical

will focus explicitly on the application of imaging coronary artery
disease at micro resolution to distinguish between calcified and
non-calcified vascular plaques by conducting in-vitro experiments. The
