On Monday September 5, 2022, about 50 leading experts in theoretical computer science will meet at Jaderka for the international conference Journées Montoises d’Informatique Théorique. For the first time in the history of this international event, this year it will be hosted by the Department of Mathematics (KM) of the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering of the CTU in Prague (FNSPE) at its premises in Trojan 13, until Friday September 9, 2022.

“The fact that we have been given the opportunity to host the conference confirms the good reputation of our research group in this area,” explains Prof. Zuzana Masáková, Head of KM, who together with other colleagues is sponsoring the conference.

The first edition of the biennial conference was held in Mons, Belgium, whose name remains part of the event’s name, along with the French language. The Prague part has been postponed twice due to the epidemic and is now being held in a hybrid mode, with some participants attending online.

The conference was supported by the European Union through the Centre of Advanced Applied Science (CAAS). Within the Theory research programme, scientists in the Combinatorial and Algebraic Structures, Theoretical Computer Science sub-programme are working in this area. It involves not only FNSPE staff, but also staff of the Faculty of Information Technology of the Czech Technical University in Prague (FIT).

More detailed information about the conference is available on its website.
