The International Conference on Formal Power Series and Algebraic Combinatorics (FPSAC) is an interdisciplinary conference series focusing on recent advances in algebraic and enumerative combinatorics as well as applications and relations to other areas of mathematics, physics, biology, bioinformatics, and computer science. As the most important algebraic and enumerative combinatorics conference in the world, FPSAC’s one-week annual meeting brings together researchers in the international algebraic combinatorics community as well as other areas of combinatorics and theoretical computer science, linking them with leading scientists from allied disciplines in pure and applied mathematics, bioinformatics, and physics.
As part of FPSAC’s mission, there are a minimum of three women keynote speakers each year. Furthermore, to highlight the participation of young researchers, there is a prize for the best student paper. To be eligible for this prize, the submission should be authored exclusively by students, ensuring support for younger mathematicians.
