Report from the 17th International Workshop for Young Mathematicians (by Anita Gilarska) Saturday, 27 September 2014
With the second week of September ended the 17th International Workshop for Young Mathematicians. This year we gathered in Kraków around Descrete Mathematics. There were 72 participants including three invited speakers from abroad and three staff members of the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of Jagiellonian University who created the scientific commitee of our conference.
Officially, the Workshop started on Monday, September 8th with a short welcome speech given by Justyna Ferenc, the President of the Zaremba Association of MathematiciansStudents of Jagiellonian University. Right after the greeting the scientific part of the conference has begun.
This year there were three twohour lectures given by our honorable guests:
JeanPaul Allouche, Sequences Generated by Finite Automata
János Barát, EdgeDecomposition of Graphs
Daniel Kráľ, Combinatorial Limits.
We also had the oportunity to listen to the lectures given by the members of the scientific commitee:
Bartłomiej Bosek, Harmonious Coloring of Hypergraphs
Jarosław Grytczuk, Ramsey Theory on the Integers
Maciej Ulas, ThueMorse Sequence, Identities and Partition Functions.
Of course, we could not have had our Workshop without the student lectures. This year we listened to twelve of them:
Maciej Gawron, Twins in Words and Permutations
Piotr Karwala, Gra w Marynarza – Countingout Game with Modular Arithmetic
Tomasz Kobos, Equilateral Sets in Finite Dimensional Normed Spaces
Marcin Lara, The Polynomial Method in COmbinatorics
Martha Łącka, Specificationlike Properties in the Symbolic Dynamics
Dariusz Matlak, Permanents and the Van der Waerden Conjecture
Piotr Miska, Hankel Determinants of the Cantor Sequence
Marta Nowakowska, On the Intersection Graph of Modules
Igor Sikora, On Aztec Diamonds Tilings
Michał Świętek, A Characterization of the Ramsey Property of Families of Finite
Justyna Tabor, The Minimum Cut Problem and Connectivity of Generalized Random Graphs
Dominik Wrana, The Motorway Problem from the Physicists Point of View.
We also organized a poster session which took place on Thursday, September 11th. There were 9 posters presented:
Maria Skupień, Digital Plane and the Digital Jordan Curve Theorem
Damian Komonicki, Erdös Discrepancy Problem
Katarzyna Czeczotka, Adrianna Matuszczak, Minimum Spanning Trees
Arsine Mangasaryan, Petros Petrosyan, On the Achromatic Indices of Graph Products
Aurelia Bartnicka, Some applications of the Chinese Remainder Theorem in thetopological dynamics of Bfree systems
Daniel Strzelecki, Some Method of Proving Formulas with Binomia Coefficients
Martyna Patera, The Fox and the Hare: Stability of a Food Web
Martha Łącka, Mateusz Łącki, The Grim Game and the SpragueGrundy Theorem
Marzena Kwiatkowska, Anita Mazur, Theory of games of two members – examples.
Apart from the scientific part we organized a number of cultural and social events. Our fun started on Sunday with the first Integration Evening that took place in Żaczek Student Club. All the participants could get acquainted with each other before starting the big adventure with mathematics.
On Monday many participants decided to stay on Campus after the lectures had ended to play some board games. The evening lasted almost till midnight and naturally we ordered pizza for everyone.
Tuesday evening passed under the sign of club games. That day we spent a few hours in Plaza City Center meeting closer cue and bowling ball.
On Wednesday we organized traditional sightseeing trip. This time we visited Nowa Huta District where the participants climbed onto a real tank and took the group photo next to the Lord's Ark (church in Nowa Huta designed as Noah's Ark). In the evening we were singing in the Coyote Club. Everyone who took part in karaoke evening will probably agree with me that we had a lot of fun.
On Thursday we had an opportunity to try something different. In two groups we played Laser Tag game. When we finished we were all exhausted but laughing all the way.
Friday started with a first Jagiellonian Univerity Campus Tour ever. We even decided to visit Zakrzówek (old stonepit, now flooded). In the evening we made a farewell party.
On Saturday the President of the Zaremba Association officially closed the Workshop. The best lecture and best poster contest were concluded.
We are happy to announce the winners:
Best Lecture:
1) Tomasz Kobos
2) Maciej Gawron
3) Justyna Tabor
Best Poster:
1) Arsine Mangasaryan
2) Damian Komonicki
3) Maria Skupień.
At the end a small lottery was organized. The winners were given small gadgets connected with our Association. Later we exchanged phone numbers and email addresses and parted with a promise to meet at the next conference.
To sum up we would like to thank our honorable guests, members of scientific commitee, lecturers, poster authors and all the participants without whom we wouldn't be able to make the Workshop.
We would like to thank:
Jerzy Miller, Voivode of the Małopolska Region
Marek Sowa, Marshal of the Małopolska Region
Wojciech Nowak, Rector of the Jagiellonian University
Armen Edigarian, Dean of the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of the Jagiellonian University
for giving their honorary patronage to our conference.
We thank all the sponsors and organizers of the 17th Workshop and invite all of you to the 18th Workshop next year.
