The János Bolyai Mathematical Society and the Alfréd Rényi Institute of Mathematics are organizing the fourth 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 fourth workshop is still combinatorics; more precisely positional games.

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

9:29 Welcome

9:30 - 10:15 Michael Krivelevich: Introduction to Positional Games

10:30 - 11:15 Dan Hefetz: Maker-Breaker Games

11:30 - 12:15 Milos Stojakovic: Avoider-Enforcer Games

Lunch Break

14:00 - 14:45 Asaf Ferber: Strong Games and Fast Weak Games

The first day of lectures will be held at the Rényi Institute in Budapest. Later that afternoon we travel to Tihany. The rest of the workshop will be held at the guest house of the Limnology Institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in Tihany.

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

Attendance of the first day lectures is free. If you come to Tihany, accommodation (3 nights) and food (Monday dinner through Thursday lunch) and travel costs will be approximately 50000 ft=170euros/person.

Due to the limited capacity of the guest house in Tihany we cannot accept applications anymore.
