On December 12, 2019, Hong Liu from University of Warwick gave a talk on the resolution of the conjecture of Mader on the existence of a complete topological minor under the condition of average degree for C4-free graphs at the discrete math seminar held at KAIST. The title of his talk was “A proof of Mader’s conjecture on large clique subdivisions in $C_4$-free graphs“.
On December 10, 2019, Jakub Gajarský from Technische Universität Berlin presented a talk on the class of graphs of structurally bounded expansion and its relationship to the low shrubdepth covers. The title of his talk was “First-order interpretations of bounded expansion classes“.
On November 21, 2019, Frédéric Meunier from École Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées, Paris presented a talk on the orthogonal representations and the orthogonality dimension of graphs at the discrete math seminar. The title of his talk was “Topological bounds for graph representations over any field“.
On November 19, 2019, Ruth Luo from University of California San Diego gave a talk on the Turán-type results on r-uniform hypergraphs without a certain structure called an induced Berge-F.

On October 29, 2019, Pascal Gollin from IBS discrete mathematics group gave a talk on the existence of a decomposition of an infinite graph into spanning trees in terms of the existence of packing and covering of spanning trees at the discrete math seminar. The title of his talk was “A Cantor-Bernstein-type theorem for spanning trees in infinite graphs“.
