Summer School on Algorithm Engineering for Network Problems (Potsdam)

Summer School

Organized in cooperation with DFG research unit ADYN and HPI Potsdam.

The summer school consists of lectures on different approaches to modern algorithm engineering research. The target audience are senior undergraduate students, PhD students and PostDocs with an interest in algorithms, algorithm research and/or network problems.

Lectures will be given by:

  • Hannah Bast (University of Freiburg): Knowledge Graphs
  • Thomas Bläsius (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology): Geometric Inhomogeneous Random Graphs
  • Gerth Stolting Brodal (Aarhus University): Algorithm Engineering the Theory
  • Giuseppe F. Italiano (LUISS University Rome): Temporal Graphs
  • Riko Jacob (IT University Copenhagen): Algorithms and Data Structures - Lower bounds for various models of computation
  • Henning Meyerhenke (Humboldt-University Berlin): NetworKit
  • Francesco Silvestri (University of Padova): Algorithms for Tensor Cores and Processing in Memory.


The summer school will take place at the campus of the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam, Germany, at the border to Berlin. Detailed directions can be found here.

Fee & Cost:

  • There will be no participation fee as the school is funded by the DFG Research Unit ADYN FOR 2975 and C3S.
