Jinha Kim (김진하) is awarded the Excellence Award for Young Scientist (미래인재상) by Korea Federation of Women’s Science and Technology Associations (KOFWST, 한국여성과학기술단체총연합회). Congratulations!

On November 19, 2021, Jinha Kim (김진하) of the IBS Discrete Mathematics Group received the Excellence Award for Young Scientist (미래인재상) by Korea Federation of Women’s Science and Technology Associations (KOFWST, 한국여성과학기술단체총연합회). This award was created to recognize woman scientists and engineers who have the potentials to elevate the nation’s competitiveness in science through great passion, dedication, and remarkable achievement in their work. Congratulations!

Jaehoon Kim (김재훈) gave a talk on a sufficient condition for a 2-complex to have a unique embedding in a 3-dimensional space, which is a 3-dimensional analog of Whitney’s theorem on the uniqueness of planar embeddings of a 3-connected graph at the Discrete Math Seminar

On November 9, 2021, Jaehoon Kim (김재훈) from KAIST gave a talk at the Discrete Math Seminar on a 3-dimensional analog of Whitney’s theorem on the uniqueness of planar embeddings of a 3-connected graph. The title of his talk was “2-complexes with unique embeddings in 3-space“.

Martin Milanič gave an online talk on a variation of tree-width of graphs by measuring the width of a tree-decomposition by the size of the largest stable set in a bag at the Virtual Discrete Math Colloquium

On November 5, 2021, Martin Milanič from the University of Primorska, Slovenia gave an online talk at the Virtual Discrete Math Colloquium on a variation of tree-width by measuring the width of a tree-decomposition by the size of the largest stable set in a bag and its algorithmic applications to the maximum weight stable set. The title of his talk was “Tree Decompositions with Bounded Independence Number“.
