Workshop on Combinatorics, Enumeration, and Invariant Theory (WCEIT)
Supported in part by a grant from the Office of Naval Research (ONR).
About the workshop
WCEIT will be held on Friday and Saturday March 19 -- 20, 2010,
at the Department of Mathematical Sciences at George Mason University (GMU) in Fairfax, Virginia.
The talks will take place in Science and Technology I (STI) (which looks like this from the outside),
in rooom 242, the designated Seminar room for the Department of Mathematical Sciences.
Our principle invited speaker will be
