Research Experiences for Undergraduates

Charles University in Prague and particularly Department of Applied Mathematics (KAM), Computer Science Institute of Charles University (IUUK) and its international centre DIMATIA together with DIMACS of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, are very proud that they are hosting one of the very few International REU programmes which are funded jointly by NSF and the Ministry of Education of Czech Republic (under the framework of Kontakt programmes ME 521, ME 886 and ME 09074). This programme is a star programme at both ends and it exists for more than a decade since 1999. Repeatedly, it has been awarded for its accomplishments and educational excellence.

The program of Kontakt on the Czech side was not renewed since year 2014 and thus the programme was financed jointly by Section Informatics of MFF and our grants CE-ITI P202/12/G061, ERCCZ LL1201 and SVV-202-09/260103 (Discrete Models and Algorithms). We thank all the contributors and hope that the next year will bring us a stable support.

From 2019 the program is receiving funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 823748.

The booklet reports the programme every year is printed in ITI series.

A part of the programme is Prague Midsummer Combinatorial Workshop. It is being held regularly each summer since 1993 and they are organized by DIMATIA and Department of Applied Mathematics (KAM) of Charles University.
