The 3rd Graph Searching in Canada (GRASCan) Workshop will be held at the University of Montreal 28-29 May 2015. The purpose of this ongoing, invitation-only workshop is to bring together graph searchers working in any and all aspects of good versus bad guy games on graphs and their variants, such as Cops and Robbers, edge searching, firefighting, and graph cleaning.


Talks are each 30 - 60 minutes in length and will take place during the mornings of the workshop, leaving the afternoon free for discussions and collaborations. Schedule is for 45 minute talks (with discussion), but the presentation may be shorter or longer. Please let me know if you need more time (or much less). If you wish to talk and are not on the program, let me know NOW. Titles and abstracts are those received, please provide yours if it is not included. See the latest version of the program.


All lectures are in 5340, we also have room 4336 for discussions in the André-Aisenstadt building (a short walk from the hotel or the residence), see plan.
Coffee and lunch will be in 4336.
