6th Emléktábla Workshop


The János Bolyai Mathematical Society, MTA-ELTE Geometric and Algebraic Combinatorics Research Group, the Mathematics Institute of the Esterházy Károly College, and the Alfréd Rényi Institute of Mathematics are organizing the sixth 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 sixth workshop is still combinatorics; more precisely finite geometry.


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.


The first day of lectures will be held at the Rényi Institute in Budapest. Later that afternoon we travel to Eger. The rest of the workshop will be held at the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics of the Esterházy Károly College in Eger.

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 Eger, accommodation (3 nights) and food (Monday dinner through Thursday lunch) and travel costs will be approximately 45000 HUF/person.
