FPSAC (Formal Power Series and Algebraic Combinatorics) is the main
yearly international conference in algebraic combinatorics. It will
happen this year in Paris, June 24th-28th. We are planning to organize

To organize it, it would be helpful to have a rough idea of how many
people would attend. If you are considering to join, please add
yourself to the list below, or drop me (`Nicolas <http://Nicolas.Thiery.name/>`_)
a line. At this point, it is likely that we won't have much funding,
except for people from American institutions through our NSF grant. So
please mention if you would need funding for lodging and travel, but
don't plan too much on it!
Tentative Schedule

* Monday morning-Wednesday morning: tutorial for newcomers and talks with a slant toward algebraic combinatorics

* Afternoons and rest of the week: coding sprints

* Thusrday 2pm-3pm: by a coincidence, the `Digiteo Seminar <http://www.digiteo.fr/prochaine-seance-du-seminaire-digiteo-organisee-avec>`_ will take place in our conference room, with a
  distinguished lecture by Georges Gonthier on computer-checked proofs: Le génie mathématique, du théorème de quatre couleurs à la classification des groupes.

Newcomers are welcome to join later in the week;
there won't be specific events organized for them then, but we will be
available for questions and discussions while they get through
tutorials on their own or work on their personnal projects.


The workshop will be held at the Faculté d'Orsay, probably in the `math department <http://www.math.u-psud.fr/acces.php>`_.
It's 45 minutes from Paris downtown by local trains, and a five minute walk from the hotel (see below).


See the `Projects list <http:/combinat/FPSAC13_projects>`_.


Participation is free. To register,
please fill in `this poll <http://framadate.org/3p4vprml76v9r3vz>`_ so
that we can plan ahead for rooms, coffee breaks, ... and also to
optimize the lodging. Please send us your e-mail address as well so
that we can get in touch with you as the workshop gets closer.


We have negociated a reduced price at the nearby
`Residhome Appart Hotel from Bures-sur-Yvette <http://www.residhome.com/reservation1-residence-hoteliere-aparthotel-buressuryvette-183.html>`_.
The rate is of 66€ per night (56€ 5 nights or more) for a two person
studio (double bed or twin bed). There is also a reduced rate of 106€
(90€ for 5 nights or more) for a four person apartment (two double
beds; probably not so convenient). Breakfast is not included; see the
web site for the amenities.

To reduce the expenses you are strongly encouraged to find a room mate
to share a double room with. In particular, for those person that will
get funding from us for lodging, we will most likely reimburse on the
basis of 33 euros per night in order to support more participants.

To reserve a room, please send them an e-mail at
*[email protected]* or call *+33 1 64 86 36 00*. Mention
that you come for the "Sage Days 49 conference". If you want to share
a twin room, mention it and specify who your room mate will be.

*Caveat: there are only a limited number of rooms with twin beds, and
they will run out soon*. Therefore you are urged to reserve your room
as soon as possible.


For participants coming from universities in the United States, there
is funding from our Sage-Combinat NSF grant. Please email Anne
Schilling (email anne at math.ucdavis.edu) with your CV and an estimated budget. The deadline
for this is March 30,
2013. Later applications will be considered as long as funds are

For now this all you need to do to request funding.
