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.
Courses offered in the academic years 2019/20 and 2020/21
In the academic year 2019/20, there will be seven intensive courses. The courses are organized in two-week blocks, and it is possible (and actually expected) to attend only some of the seven courses. Three courses are offered as intensive courses with a lecture held on each weekday during the two-week block, two as one-week courses with two lectures each day, and two as one-week courses with a single lecture each day. A part of each weekday will be also devoted to solving exercises given during the lectures. While the schedule will allow one to attend all courses in a block, it is possible to register for a single course in the block.
