Research interests

The interests of the group are spread across a very wide range of combinatorics and related areasMore details can be found on our members' individual webpages -  visit Who's who in Combinatorics.


There is a combinatorial theory graduate seminar on most Tuesdays during term at 1400hrs. Links to the full series listing and the next talk are below: 

Combinatorial Theory Seminar 

Alex Scott is the organiser of the seminar.


Oxford Discrete Mathematics and Probability Seminar (ODMAP)

ODMAP has been running since March 2020 online, and there are usually two seminars each term. The meetings are organised by Christina Goldschmidt and Alex Scott. Details of the talks, how to join the mailing list, as well as past talk listings, can be found on the ODMAP website. Watch previous seminars on YouTube.

Junior combinatorics seminar

The programme will be announced shortly.

One Day Meeting in Combinatorics

The annual One Day Meeting in Combinatorics runs every year in May or June. If you have any questions about the event, please contact Alex Scott.

The last meeting was on 24 May 2023 at the Mathematical Institute (details of previous meetings can be found here).

Useful Links

The group is based at the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford. Instructions on how to reach the Institute can be found here.

International Congress of Mathematicians 2022

Alexander Scott: Graphs of large chromatic number

The International Congress of Mathematicians 2022 took place online. Held every four years, it is, of course, where Fields Medals are handed out. It is also where mathematicians are invited to give lectures in various categories, and in 2022 Alex Scott was so honoured.
