Nova Louka, December 1-6, 2013

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

The workshop continues the tradition started at Nova Louka in late fall 2000. This year, for the third 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 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.

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 with a sauna.
