Nova Louka, November 26 - 30, 2012

Organized by KAM and IUUK, supported by DIMATIA, CE-ITI and GraDR.

The crosscountry-skiing conditions are NOT good 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. This year, for the second time, the workshop will be devoted mainly to solving geometrical problems (as well as 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 (except members of KAM, ITI, and GraDR) is by invitation only. To inquire please contact prof. Jan Kratochvil (honza -at- kam.mff.cuni.cz). Deadline for registration is set to November 19, 2012.

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 and table tennis. The lodge is equipped by sauna.
