Vanderbilt Workshop on Graph Factors

The Vanderbilt Workshop on Graph Factors took place at Vanderbilt University, in Nashville, Tennessee, U.S.A., from Monday 8th December to Thursday 11th December, 2003. As we wanted to keep the workshop to a manageable size so that people were encouraged to work together, participation was by invitation only. We had a very international group, with participants from Asia, Australasia, Europe, and North America.

We gratefully acknowledge funding by the Shanks Endowment of the Department of Mathematics.
