1st Emléktábla Workshop


The János Bolyai Mathematical Society and the Alfréd Rényi Institute of Mathematics are organizing the third event of the Emléktábla Workshop Series. The aim of the series is to gather young mathematicians to work on problems posed by experienced senior researchers. The topic of the third workshop is still combinatorics; more precisely whatever senior researchers decide.


On the first day the senior participants give one lecture each presenting an area with many open problems that we will solve during the rest of the week. Every other day we will split up to smaller groups according to which problem we want to work on. At the end of the day each group gives an informal presentation about the long standing conjectures solved that day.

Schedule of Day I

10:14 Welcome
10:15 - 11:00 Gábor Sárközy
11:15 - 12:00 József Balogh

Lunch Break

14:00 - 14:45 Gábor Tardos
15:00 - 15:45 Miklós Bóna


The first day of lectures will be held at the Rényi Institute in Budapest. Later that afternoon we travel to Balatonalmádi. The rest of the workshop will be held at the resort center of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in Balatonalmádi.

How do we get there?

To get to Rényi Institute follow the instructions of its webpage.


Attendance of the first day lectures is free. If you come to Balatonalmádi, accommodation (3 nights) and food (Monday dinner through Thursday lunch) and travel costs will be approximately 38000 ft=150euros/person.


Due to the limited capacity of the resort center in Balatonalmádi we cannot accept applications anymore.
