Conference Announcement

The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences (OEIS) began in 1996 with 10,000 sequences. The database was started by Neil Sloane in 1964 when, as a graduate student, he began collecting integer sequences on file cards, and was published by Academic Press in 1973 as A Handbook of Integer Sequences, containing 2372 sequences. The popularity of the Handbook eventually led to the publication of The Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences by Neil Sloane and Simon Plouffe in 1995, containing 5488 sequences. The website was created a year later and has continued to grow ever since.

This conference will invite participants to discuss the challenges and advances in research in the computational sciences that can be attributed to the On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences. Conference attendees will participate in discussions on the importance of having an easily accessible database and the difficulties of identifying and computing sequences. The conference will also celebrate three milestones: the 50th birthday of the database, reaching 250,000 sequences, and Sloane's 75th birthday.

Space is limited, so please register soon if you are interested in attending.
