The goal of the conference is to bring together researchers and students interested in algebraic combinatorics, combinatorial designs, finite geometry, graphs, and their applications to communications, classical and quantum error-correcting codes, cryptography, information security, and other related areas, in order to promote new linkages and collaborations.

The Kliakhandler Conference is an annual event funded by a generous gift from Igor Kliakhandler, with additional support from NSF. Its purpose is to stimulate research activity in the Mathematical Sciences.
