Fundamentals of Computing and Discrete Mathematics

Distinguished Lecture Series

The Distinguished Lecture Series is a cycle of talks within which the most respected names in Combinatorics on Words and related fields are invited to Turku to deliver a colloquium talk and to teach a short doctoral level topics course. These short courses target the needs and interests of our current students and are open to all students participating in the Consortium.
