Although we organized several workshops in our research areas over the past years (including EURO Summer School, and the MATCOS Conferences in Koper), SWORDS workshops always provided a special atmosphere by attracting researchers with diverse background. The first one was organized in 2014, and it was attended by researchers from 10 countries. This number of participating countries was outshined by the next workshop. However, such statistics are only one possibility to measure the success of a conference. It was really a great pleasure for us that leading researchers from all over Europe participated in the two-day events, as we know that the most important feature is the quality of the talks. Not to mention in this short introduction those personal discussions that established numerous further research.
These are the main reasons that we decided to continue our efforts to organize the third SWORDS workshop in line this year. As a result we are proud to announce the
Szeged WORkshop on Discrete Structures
28 – 29 May 2020
Like in the case of the previous workshops, we invited those professionals who are leading experts in their research field and can join in some ways to the Hungarian working groups in the field of discrete models and methods.
As the title of our Workshop shows, -- following the traditions of the earlier SWORDS conferences -- we "opened the door quite wide": The scope of the workshop includes topics that are related to discrete structures, such as discrete mathematics, graph theory, machine learning, combinatorial optimization, big data, artificial intelligence etc. Presentations from theory and application are both welcome. Research on exact and approximation algorithms also are in the focus.
Welcome to the workshop; we wish you a pleasant stay in Szeged.
