    Year 1999

    Overview of Events

    January 29, 1999 DIMATIA Graph Theory Day, DIMATIA, Prague. Newly started tradition of one day meetings of scientists.

    February 1999 Short term visitors:

    • B. Banachewski (Hamilton)

    February 9, 1999 33rd Mathematical Colloquium: talk given by Bernhard Banaschewski (Propositional Theories, Frames and Fuzzy Algebra).

    Spring 1999 DIMATIA was awarded a grant GACR 210/99/0242 DIMATIA with budget 643.000,- CZK per year. Main goal of the grant is to support visitors and postdoctoral program at DIMATIA.

    Spring 1999 DIMATIA offered new postdoctoral positions available from summer 1999. Both long and short term stays at DIMATIA are possible.

    March 1999 Short term visitors:

    • J. Diaz (Barcelona)
    • E. Mayr (Munchen)
    • P. Widmayer (Zurich)
    • L. H. Kaufmann (Chicago)
    • G. Woeginger (Graz)

    March 16, 1999 34th Mathematical Colloquium: talk given by Louis H. Kauffman (Introduction to Quantum Link Invariants).

    April 1999 Short term visitors:

    • P. Hell (Burnaby)
    • J. Marks (Cambridge)
    • J. Chayes (New Jersey)
    • A. Raspaud (Bordeaux)

    April 15, 1999 The series of DIMATIA Computer Science Colloquia continued with talk given by Joe Marks (Graphics Made Easier (Through Computational Geometry and Optimization)).

    April-June, 1999 In KAM-DIMATIA series the lecture notes for students of Spring School of Combinatorics and international summer program (REU program) were published.

    April 19-30, 1999 Spring School of Combinatorics, organized by DIMATIA jointly with LaBRI, University of Bordeaux, Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universitat Bonn and Humboldt Universitat, Berlin, supported by EU grant in terms of IP-Socrates program, Borova Lada and Finsterau. Traditional meeting of students and their teachers in beautiful nature of Sumava National Park went through several changes. The most remarkable of them are, that this year the intensive program of school lasted two weeks (with the second half in German Finsterau) and that more then 40 students from organizing institutions participated.

    May 1999 Short term visitors:

    • E. Sopena (Bordeaux)

    May 18, 1999 Visit of representative of NSF Mrs. Bonnie H. Thompson at DIMATIA.

    June 1999 Short term visitors:

    • M. Rosenfeld (Seattle)

    June - July, 1999 Two students and a leader participant were visiting at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, in terms of REU program.

    June 2-4, 1999 Joint DIMACS-DIMATIA Workshop on Algebraic Methods and Arithmetic Circuits, DIMACS Center, New Jersey. This workshop was intended to exploitation of algebraic techniques on some of the central problems of theoretical computer science.

    June, 1999 35th Mathematical Colloquium: talk given by Gilles Pisier (Similarity Problems for Hilbert Space Operators and Related Algebras).

    June 6-11, 1999 DIMATIA supported The International Conference on P. Erdos Mathematics in Budapest.

    July 1999 Short term visitors:

    • B. Steiger (New Jersey)

    • M. Pelegrini (Pisa)

    July - August, 1999 Ten students from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, were visiting at DIMATIA in terms of REU program.

    July, 1999 Visit of scientific attache of US Embassy at DIMATIA.

    July 16-18, 1999 Seventh Annual European Symposium on Algorithms, ESA '99, hotel PRAHA, Prague, organized by DIMATIA. The silent milieu of the hotel located in the residential area of green gardens in suburban district Hanspaulka guaranteed the best conditions for meeting of more than 100 participants.
    Proceedings were published by Springer-Verlag.

    July 26-30, 1999, 6th Prague Midsummer Combinatorial Workshop, organized by DIMATIA, Prague. 6th in the line of meetings lost nothing from pleasant and working atmosphere of previous workshops.

    August 1999 Short term visitors:

    • M. Katchalski (Haifa)

    September 1999 DIMATIA was jointly with LaBRI, Bordeaux, Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universitat Bonn, Humboldt Universitat, Berlin and Institute for Computational Mathematics, Pisa awarded for the second term the EU grant in terms of IP-Socrates Program to support The International Spring School of Combinatorics '00.

    • W. Basalaj (Ljubljana)
    • B. Mohar (Ljubljana)

    September 16-18, 1999, Graph Drawing '99, organized by DIMATIA, Stirin castle. After two years DIMATIA returned to beautiful area of Stirin castle. This year conference took place in newly refurbished conference centre in former stables of the castle. There were more then 70 participants.
    Proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag.

    October 22-24, 1999 The first meeting of The International Scientific Advisory Board of DIMATIA, Stirin castle.
