December 9-13, 2019
Organized by KAM and IÚUK
Supported by DIMATIA and RSJ.
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.
An informal faculty retreat for KAM and IÚUK is planned for Monday afternoon/evening and Tuedsay morning. Martin Balko is a coordinator of the retreat.
Participation (except members of KAM, IÚUK 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.
Tutorial about algorithms for geometric graphs will be given by Paweł Rzążewski during the event. See the the slides from Paweł's presentation

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).
The departure spot slightly changed for this year! A conference shuttle bus departs from Náměstí Míru in front of the "Národní Dům na Vinohradech" on Monday December 9 at 8:55 and will return to the same place on Friday December 13 afternoon. We will meet at 8:45 on the spot in the map.
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).
