Nova Louka

December 8-12, 2014

Organized by KAM and IUUK

Supported by DIMATIA and EUROCORES.

The workshop continues the tradition started at Nova Louka in late fall 2000, with focus on structural properties, algebraic aspects, algorithmic complexity and other aspects of graphs, graph homomorphisms and related topics.

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.

Participation (except members of KAM and Dimatia) is by invitation only. To inquire please contact us at homonolo@kam.mff.cuni.cz.

The venue of the workshop is a historic wooden hunters' lodge Samalova chata 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.


Please register here before November 15, 2014 and let us know any changes via email at homonolo@kam.mff.cuni.cz as well as any questions.

We will ask ESF to support GraDR members' local expenses (incl. the bus from Prague). However, to apply we first need to have a preliminary list of participants. If you are a GraDR member and consider coming to Homonolo, please drop us a short note at homonolo@kam.mff.cuni.cz by August 31, 2014.
