For the first time in the history of "KolKom" (Colloquium on Combinatorics), the annual meeting of combinatorics took place at Paderborn University on November 4-5, 2016.
Prof. Dr. Kai-Uwe Schmidt (Institute of Mathematics) and Prof. Dr. Eckhard Steffen (Inst. of Mathematics and PACE) invited international researchers to come together and discuss current research and scientific findings at this conference.
The participants attended five main lectures and 45 session lectures, which took place on Friday and Saturday. As invited speakers, the organizing committee had asked Prof. Dr. Xuding Zhu of Zhejiang Normal University, China, Prof. Dr. Kathrin Klamroth of Wuppertal University, Germany, Patric R. J. Östergård of Aalto University, Finland, Prof. Dr. Ingo Schiermeyer from Freiberg University, Germany and the former Paderborn University professor, Prof. Dr. Peter Bürgisser, who now holds a position at the TU Berlin, Germany, to present their current research results.
Both participants and organizers were very pleased with the results of the conference and are looking forward to the next "KolKom", which will also take place in Paderborn in 2017.
