              Doc-Course on
      *Geometric Graphs and Orders*

          May 25 - July 23, 2009


Pavel Valtr (Charles University, Prague)
  *Combinatorics of Point Configurations*
  May 25 - Jun 12
Tom Trotter (Georgia Tech, Atlanta)
  *Combinatorics of partially ordered sets*
  June 15 - July 3

The (Pre-)Doc-Course is organized as part of the
Berlin Research Training Group (Graduiertenkolleg)
"Methods for Discrete Structures".
It is addressed to graduate students and postdocs in
mathematics or computer science who are interested in
geometry, combinatorics and related fields. Students
preparing to enter a PhD program in Discrete Mathematics
or in Computer Science are also welcome.


There will be three mini-courses of 3 weeks duration.
Each weak, there will be two days of lectures.
In addition, exercises will be solved in
small teams, with solution sessions.
The instruction language is English.
The course will take place at
 * Technische Universit=EF=BF=BDt Berlin and
 * Freie Universit=EF=BF=BDt Berlin


Applications for the course, with a short curriculum vitae and
scientific background, should be sent by March 31, 2009, to

    Elke Pose, <mailto:pose at math.fu-berlin.de>

We can support a limited number of participants with an
amout of up to 1500 EUR. Applications for stipends, with
curriculum vitae, copies of certificates, diploma or master
thesis, areas of interest, and a letter of recommendation
should be sent by March 15, 2009, preferably by e-mail, to

    Elke Pose, <mailto:pose at math.fu-berlin.de>
    RTG "Methods for Discrete Structures"
    Inst. Mathematics, MA 6-2
