Program Description:

This program consists of a short intensive workshop, where mathematicians from across the globe will come together to work on open problems in structural graph theory. We will consider the following research themes: graph minors, graph colouring, Hadwiger’s Conjecture, bounded expansion classes, graph product structure theory, generalised colouring numbers, VC dimension, induced subgraphs, Erdös-Hajnal conjecture, Gyárfás-Sumner conjecture, twin-width, asymptotic dimension. The majority of the time will be allocated to collaborative research (with only a few talks). The goal is to create an environment where mathematicians at all career stages work side-by-side. We anticipate that open problems will be solved, and lasting collaborations will be initiated.

MATRIX Wine and Cheese Afternoon 22 March 2022
On the first Tuesday of each program, MATRIX provides a pre-dinner wine and cheese afternoon. Produce is locally-sourced to showcase delicacies from the region.

This program is supported by MATRIX and the Discrete Mathematics Group (DIMAG) of the Institute for Basic Science (IBS, Korea).
