History of the symposium
As a part of the long history of cooperation among Japanese and Hungarian scientists in the field of discrete mathematics, the 1st Japanese-Hungarian Symposium on Discrete Mathematics and Its Applications took place in Kyoto in 1999. The participants decided to continue their existing cooperation on a more regular basis and have established a biennial series of conferences. The 2nd, 4th, and 6th Symposiums took place in Budapest in 2001, 2005, and 2009 respectively, while the 3rd, 5th, and 7th ones in Tokyo (2003), Sendai (2007), and Kyoto (2011), respectively.
The 8th Symposium will jointly be organized by the Department of Operations Research, Eötvös University, by the Department of Computer Science and Information Theory, Budapest University of Technology and Economics, and by the Faculty of Information Technology, University of Pannonia, Veszprem.
An Advisory Board, consisting of András Frank, Satoru Fujishige, Satoru Iwata, Tibor Jordan, Gyula Y. Katona, Kazuo Murota, Hiroshi Nagamochi, András Recski, Miklós Simonovits, Takeshi Tokuyama, and Zsolt Tuza has been established.
The Symposium will take place in Veszprém, Hungary, between
