Nová Louka

December 10-14, 2018

Organized by KAM and IÚUK

Supported by DIMATIA and RSJ.

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.

An informal faculty retreat for KAM and IÚUK is planned for Monday afternoon/evening and Tuedsay morning.

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

The venue of the workshop is a historic wooden hunters' lodge Šámalova chata far enough from traces of civilization. Sporting activities include cross-country skiing or alternatively mountain biking and table tennis. The lodge is equipped with a sauna.


The registration is closed. If you are interested in participation, contact us be email, please. Also, let us know any changes via email at homonolo@kam.mff.cuni.cz as well as any questions.
