ITI Online Seminar

Starting on 8th October 2020, the ITI Online Seminar is a venue for presenting current research in discrete mathematics and theoretical computer science in the Czech Republic.

The talks take place over Zoom (see below) every Thursday at 11:00 CET. The format (copied with compliments) is a 60 minute talk that is split into a 40 minute and a 20 minute part, with a 15 minute coffee break in between (good for discussion with the speaker).

The title of the seminar

The seminar is an initiative of people from various institutions formerly cooperating within the Institute for Theoretical Computer Science (ITI, 2000-2018):

  • Department of Applied Mathematics and the Computer Science Institute of Charles University,
  • Institute of Computer Science and Institute of Mathematics of the Czech Academy of Sciences,
  • Faculty of Informatics of Masaryk University,
  • Department of Mathematics of the University of West Bohemia.

The title is intended to make the seminar a symbolic continuation of the ITI.


The seminar is organised by Tomáš Kaiser (University of West Bohemia) and Samuel Mohr (Masaryk University). Please send us an email if you have any questions or suggestions.
