Note on the corona virus situation: Our conference will take place online in the weeks of August 3-7 and 10-14, 2020. Talks will take place between 10 AM and 2 PM, US Eastern Time. A more detailed schedule of talks and other events will be posted when we have it.
"Dimers in Combinatorics and Cluster Algebras" will take place online in the weeks of August 3-7 and 10-14, 2020.
Our tentative schedule for each day is:
This conference is targeted at people who use dimers in a range of combinatorial areas, including exact enumerations of dimer covers, parametrizations of Grassmannians and positroid cells, cluster algebras, Schur processes and limit shapes, discrete integrable systems, dimer models in quantum field theory and non-commutative resolutions of toric singularities; we aim to welcome graduate students and young researchers begining work in these fields.

reserved at a reduced rate at the Wyndham
Garden Inn at $139/night. This is about three miles from campus;
we will organize carpools or some form of shuttle to the
conference. To request a room at this rate, please fill out the registration
poll. If you have already registered but need to change your
travel information, you can go back and fill out the poll again; note
that there is a checkbox for people in your situation. All requests to
be part of the room block must be filled out by July 7. Due
to the corona virus situation, there is will be no in person
conference. We will cancel all reservations that we have made on
behalf of guests or speakers; if you have made your own reservations,
obviously, you will need to cancel them.
Please fill out this poll to register for the conference. Some funding may be available for graduate students and postdocs to travel to the conference. Note: This poll has a place to enter your dates and hotel plans but, if you want to come and don't have exact travel plans yet, please fill it out now; you can fix the travel plans later.
