Nová Louka

December 5-9, 2022

Organized by KAM and IÚUK

Supported by DIMATIA and RSJ.

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. Related topics like discrete geometry or structural, computational and parameterized complexity are also welcome.

We will follow the informal atmosphere of Prague Midsummer Combinatorial Workshops, in particular participants are welcomed to present some open problems in a 10-20 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, 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.


Please register here before November 15, 2022.

Travel instructions

The lodge Šámalova chata at Nová Louka is located in the center of one of the nicest Czech hills Jizerské hory, located in the north part of the Czech Republic (close to the Polish and German borders).

To get to and from Nová Louka we suggest to either negotiate a car pooling. (The document is protected by a password which has been sent with the invitation. Contact us, if you need access.)

We also suggest to consider public transport to get closer. One of the possible would be regiojet bus at 10AM that arrives at 11:05 to Liberec, Fugnerova and then take city bus nr. 18 to Bedřichov stadion (the final stop) at 11:25 from the near stop.

There will be a conference shuttle bus for the return journey from Nová Louka to Prague subway station Černý Most on Friday afternoon December 9. Expected departure around 1PM, expected arrival to Prague around 3PM.

The easiest way by car to Nová Louka is through Liberec (highway R10 north from Prague and then R35), then to Bedřichov and then finally to Nová Louka. Beyond Bedřichov the road is closed for public, but hotel guests are allowed to drive in. Notice that in case of snowing you may need snow chains.
