December 11-15, 2017
Organized by KAM and IUUK
Supported by DIMATIA.
The workshop continues the tradition started at Nová Louka in late fall 2000, with focus on structural properties, algebraic aspects, algorithmic complexity and other aspects of graphs, graph homomorphisms and related topics.
We will follow the informal atmosphere of Prague Midsummer Combinatorial Workshops, in particular participants are welcomed to present some open problems in a 20-30 minute long talk, but no abstracts are required beforehand. The program is decided on the spot, so that enough time remains for discussions, problem solving and sightseeing.
Participation (except members of KAM, IUUK and Dimatia) is by invitation only.
To inquire about that please contact us at
The venue of the workshop is a historic wooden hunters' lodge Šámalova chata far enough from traces of civilization. Sporting activities include cross-country skiing or alternatively mountain biking and table tennis. The lodge is equipped with a sauna.
Please register here
before November 15, 2017 and let us know any changes via email at
as well as any questions.
The lodge Šámalova chata at Nová Louka is located in the center of one of the nicest Czech hills Jizerské hory, located in the north part of the Czech Republic (close to the Polish and German borders).
A conference shuttle bus departs from Francouzská street on the bus stop "Náměstí Míru", in front of the shop "U modrého slona" on Monday December 11 at 8:55 and will return to the same place on Friday December 15 afternoon. We will meet at 8:45 on the spot in the map.
In case of any trouble upon departure, please contact Tomáš Masařík at (+420) 603 323 946.
The easiest way by car to Nová Louka is through Liberec (highway R10 north from Prague and then R35), then to Bedřichov and then finally to Nová Louka. Beyond Bedřichov the road is closed for public, but hotel guests are allowed to drive in (notice that in case of snowing you may need snow chains).
