International Conference and PhD-Master Summer School on
Graphs and Groups, Spectra and Symmetries

G2S2 is the International Conference and PhD-Master Summer School on Graphs and Groups, Spectra and Symmetries. G2S2 was held on August 15 - 28, 2016, in Novosibirsk, Akademgorodok, Russia. The main goal of this event is to bring together young researchers and famous mathematicians in the field of graph theory and group theory, especially those involving group actions on combinatorial objects.

The scientific G2S2-Program with G2S2-Timetable consists of the G2S2-conference and the G2S2-Summer School.

The scientific program of the G2S2-conference consists of plenary and contributed talks.
