AlgoMaNet – Algorithms and Mathematics Network
AlgoMaNet is a network based on a collaboration among four Central European universities (Charles University in Prague, Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Masaryk University in Brno and the University of Warsaw) in the areas of discrete algorithms, discrete mathematics and theoretical computer science. The network offers lectures on advanced topics primarily to MSc and PhD students affiliated with one of the four universities. The aims of the program resemble those of the intensive programs for senior undergraduate and graduate students organized by Charles University in 2014, in 2016 and 2018.
The courses are usually organized as one week courses, often in parallel with another course in the same week; it is possible (and common) to attend only one of the two courses offered while the schedule allows attending both courses. The courses are offered as intensive courses with a lecture held on each weekday and a part of each weekday also devoted to solving exercises given during the lectures.
Courses offered in the academic year 2021/22
- May 23-27, 2022, Jagiellonian University, Kraków
Gwenaël Joret (Université Libre de Bruxelles): Product structure of planar graphs (May 23-27)
Piotr Micek (Jagiellonian University): Combinatorics of posets (May 23-27)
Courses offered in the academic year 2020/21
- August 23-September 3, 2021, Charles University, Prague
June 20-July 2, 2021, Charles University, Prague

These two courses originally planned to be held in May 2020 at Charles University had to be rescheduled to June 2021 and then to August 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic.
