## Andreas Holmsen presented his work on an extremal problem on hypergraphs on March 12 at the discrete math seminar

Andreas Holmsen from KAIST gave a talk at Discrete Math Seminar on March 12, 2019 under the title “large cliques in hypergraphs with forbidden substructures.” His work extended a result of extremal graph theory due to Gyárfás, Hubenko, and Solymosi, answering a question of Erdős to hypergraphs and has interesting consequences in topological combinatorics and abstract convexity.

## DIMAG had its first workshop “2019-1 IBS Workshop on Graph Theory”

DIMAG had its first workshop “2019-1 IBS Workshop on Graph Theory” on February 11 and 12, 2019. There were 6 invited talks — Jeong Han Kim (KIAS), Cory T. Palmer (Univ. of Montana), Martin Balko (Charles Univ.), Dong Yeap Kang (KAIST), Boram Park (Ajou Univ.), and Dániel Gerbner (Alfréd Rényi Institute of Mathematics). We would like to thank all speakers and participants.

The talks are recorded but due to technical problems, only four talks are available online.
