Discrete Math Days of the Northeast (DMDNE) is a series of one-day conferences that seeks to bring together those in the region that are interested in combinatorics and discrete mathematics. There are two conferences each year (one in the fall, the other in the spring), and they are held at various colleges and universities in the Northeast.

By holding the conferences at different locations, we hope that researchers with limited institutional support will be able to attend and stay active with research. We seek to provide: (i) a relaxed atmosphere and a friendly environment conducive to fostering collaboration across institutions and disciplines; (ii) a welcoming entry into the mathematics community for undergrad and grad students.

DMDNE is organized by the Northeast Combinatorics Network and funded by the US National Science Foundation, with additional funds from Mt. Holyoke College, Smith College, Amherst College, and UMass at Amherst.
