The program will run from late in the afternoon on Friday 3 April 2020 to about mid-day on Sunday 5 April 2020. A schedule will be posted closer to the workshop dates.

There will be five plenary talks.

Moreover there will be a sequence of short What is...? talks on topics suggested by all our participants.


What is...?
During each What is...? talk, a speaker will explain exactly what we need to know about .... well, that depends on what you want to know about.

SUGGEST a topic here: WHAT IS...?

Please also go to that form to indicate if you would be willing to be one of the speakers for a What is...? topic (not necessarily one that you suggested). We will be gathering questions and topics for this series until the end of January 2020, at which point we will start coordinating with possible speakers.


Travel support
The workshop series has a limited budget from which to provide support for travel, through a grant held this year by Clemson University. In order to stretch our budget, we encourage car pooling and students to share lodging as much as possible. If you have requested travel support, please fill out the form (PDF) and send it to Prof. Hui Xue by email (huixue at clemson dot edu) at Clemson University.

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.
