There will be three invited talks at GWGT 2017. The invited speakers will be: Prof. Jarosław Grytczuk, Prof. Andrzej Lingas, and Prof. Ingo Schiermeyer.
Jarosław Grytczuk is a Professor of Mathematics at Jagiellonian University and Warsaw University of Technology. His research interests lie in the area of discrete mathematics, especially graph colorings, Ramsey theory, and combinatorics on words. His most recognizable scientific achievements concern non-repetitive coloring of graphs, the main topic of his habilitation completed in 2006 at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, and the entropy compression method adapted to problems in combinatorics on words.
Andrzej Lingas has been full Professor of Computer Science at Lund University, since 1989. His research focuses on the design and analysis of exact and approximation algorithms for combinatorial and geometric problems, in sequential, parallel and distributed computational models. He studied at University of Warsaw where he received his MSc degree in Mathematics, in 1978. He was visiting scientist at M.I.T., in 1980-1982. Afterwards, he spent seven years at Linköping University, subsequently as research assistant, researcher, associate professor and leader of Laboratory for Complexity of Algorithms. He obtained his PhD degree and Docent competence from Linköping University in 1983 and 1987, respectively.
