BCC PhD Prize in Combinatorics

The British Combinatorial Committee (BCC) announces its second BCC PhD Prize in Combinatorics, to be awarded at the 30th British Combinatorial Conference for an outstanding UK PhD thesis in the field of Combinatorics, broadly interpreted. Details concerning eligibility, the nomination process, dates, and the award of the prize can be found at the BCC PhD Thesis Prize webpage.

Contributed Talks

Participants will be encouraged to submit an abstract on a topic related to the conference and give a 20-minute presentation.


We expect many participants to arrive on Sunday evening. The academic schedule will run from 9am on Monday until 5pm on Friday.


We are grateful for financial support from the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research and the British Combinatorial Committee. The conference is organised in partnership with the Clay Mathematics Institute.

Organising Committee

The principal organisers are Felix Fischer and Robert Johnson.
