Department of Mathematics, Vanderbilt University, May 15-17, 2008

Sponsored by the Shanks Endowment, College of Art and Science, and  the National Science Foundation

 The conference will be dedicated in honor of Mike Plummer
on the occasion of his 70th birthday.  Therefore, we are trying
 to focus on areas in which Mike has worked, including
 topological graph theory, colorings, and matchings.  There
will be special sessions on Hadwiger's conjecture and on
matchings, factors and factorizations.  However, talks from
any area related to graph theory, combinatorics and computing
are welcome.
