A little history
The SouthEastern Regional Meeting on Numbers is a
workshop series of small, friendly, and informal gathering of
number theorists and combinatorialists. Faculty members, graduate
students, and undergraduate students are all invited to
participate. The first workshop in the series took place at UNC
Greensboro in 1988. Since then it has taken place every year at
various universities in the southeast. In 2019 it was at UNCG and
now it has come to Duke University in 2020.
