Winter School 2013

The program of the school will consist of three tutorial series related to algorithm design. The late Friday afternoon is devoted to presentations of own research by some of the junior participants of the school. The format of the school will be similar to that organized in the fall 2011 - see this link.

Organizers (contact persons): Tomáš Kaiser (University of West Bohemia in Pilsen) and Dan Kráľ (University of Warwick).

Tutorial speakers

Date and place

The town of Beroun is easily reachable by bus from the subway stop Zličín (the last stop on the yellow line). There are several bus lines (e.g., numbers 380 and 384) running to Beroun from the stop. The bus station in Beroun is located about 250 metres from the school hotel. Note that there is a direct bus (number 100) from the Václav Havel Airport Prague to Zličín. The bus runs every 15 minutes from the airport and the journey takes approximetely 18 minutes. Zličín is its last stop.

We ask all participants to arrive before the lunch on December 12 and leave after the breakfast on December 15.
