Nová Louka

December 7-11, 2015

Organized by KAM and IUUK

Supported by DIMATIA.

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

This year the workshop is also the final workshop of the project New combinatorial algorithms - decompositions, parameterization, efficient solutions supported by the Ministery of Education of the Czech Republic as grant nr. LH12095.

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, IUUK 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 Šámalova 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, 2015 and let us know any changes via email at homonolo@kam.mff.cuni.cz as well as any questions.
