Workshop Graph limits in Bohemian Switzerland 2018

March 26-30, 2018

The aim of the workshop is to bring together junior and senior researchers working on the topic of graph limits, as well as related fields such as extremal graph theory, probability, or real analysis.


The focus of the workshop will be on limits of dense and sparse graphs, and related areas such as quasirandomness, extremal graph theory, inhomogeneous random graph models, and algorithms for large graphs.

The scientific program start on Monday morning and ends on Friday noon. The morning program will consist of three lecture courses:

Afternoons are kept free for collaboration and discussions, possibly in the beautiful nature of the surrounding Bohemian Switzerland. From 4pm to 6:30 pm, there will be shorter contributed talks by participants of the workshop.


The workshop will take place in Janov in the heart of Bohemian Switzerland. The closest major town is Decin (16 km), with regular direct train connections to Prague (90mins), Dresden (40mins), and Berlin (3hours). You can search for public transport for example here (please note that there are several Janovs in Czechia, the one you want to go to is in district Decin). From Decin to Janov there is infrequent bus connection (use the link above). There are also several taxi companies based in Decin. Auto Taxi Decin operates 24/7. Their phone number is (+420)412520520. One way should be around 500 CZK or 23 Euro. Credit/debit cards are not accepted.
