[DMANET] Workshop "Symmetry vs. Regularity", first announcement

Dear colleague,

it is a pleasure for us to announce that we organize the workshop:

Symmetry vs. Regularity: The first 50 years since Weisfeiler-Leman

July 1 - July 7, 2018, Pilsen, Czech Republic

The main goal of the conference is to reflect recent significant events in
the development of Algebraic Graph Theory (AGT) and related areas of
mathematics. In particular it will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the
discovery of a polynomial-time algorithm for the computation of the
coherent closure of a given graph. Over the years, this algorithm has
played a significant role in both AGT and computer science.

The conference will take place in Pilsen, named as one of the two European
capitals of culture in 2015. Most participants will be accommodated at the
Hotel Trend Pilsen, near the scenic center of Pilsen. The lectures will be
at the meeting room of the City Hall nearby (capacity of the room up to 100
