Midsummer Combinatorial Workshop XXIII
July 30 - August 3, 2018, Prague
The workshop continues the tradition of Prague Combinatorial Workshops held since 1993. Oriented on problems of all fields of graph theory, combinatorics and discrete geometry, it will continue in the spirit and informal working atmosphere of the previous meetings.
The workshop takes place at DIMATIA and the Department of Applied Mathematics of Charles University, Malostranske namesti 25, Prague 1, which is located in a historic building in the center of Old Prague. The workshop is also supported by Computer Science Institute of Charles University.
The workshop participation is by invitation only. Regardless, if you wish to participate, please email the organizers and we will respond to you shortly. In case you need an invitation letter (for example for your visa), please let us know and we will be happy to write one for you.
Coffee breaks and part of the meals are provided by the organizers. However, we will collect a modest fee of EUR 70 towards a fraction of the expenses.
As is the tradition, the program of the workshop is determined from day to day. The afternoons are reserved for discussions and other activities. If you intend to give a talk during the MCW, please let us know a few days in advance.
If you arrive later during the workshop, please register with the secretaries in the room 222 (at the 2nd floor).
On Wednesday afternoon, there will be an awesome social event.
