HOMONOLO'09 - Workshop on graph homomorphisms and related topics

Nova Louka, November 23 - 27, 2009

Organized by DIMATIA and ITI

The conference bus will take the participants from Prague to Samalova chata on Monday Nov 23 (departure from Prague - Nadrazi Holesovice - parking) at 9 a.m. and return to Prague (Nadrazi Holesovice) on Friday Nov 27 (arrival to Prague around 4 - 5 p.m.). The crosscountry skiing conditions are bad at present in Nova Louka, but we will inform you on this website, if the conditions will change.

The workshop continues the tradition started at Nova Louka in late fall 2000. The workshop will be devoted to structural properties, algebraic aspects, algorithmic complexity and other aspects of graph homomorphisms and related topics. It will follow the informal atmosphere of Prague Midsummer Combinatorial Workshops, in particular every participant is expected 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 is by invitation only. To inquire please contact Jan Kratochvil, Jaroslav Nesetril or Jiri Fiala.

The venue of the workshop is a historic wooden hunters' lodge far away from traces of civilization. Sporting activities include crosscountry skiing or alternatively mountain biking, table tennis and the excellent quisine of the cheff Mr. Polak with game on everyday menu.
