Participants lectures

Program will consist of 25 or 40 minutes long lectures given by participants on various topics. Lectures and discussions will be held in English, exceptionally in Czech. Lectures are obligatory for bachelor and master students. You can choose your topic yourself, but it is necessary to have your topic approved by Alex Kazda. The other option is to have the topic assigned, in that case, please contact your favourite teacher or consult it with Alex Kazda. Ask him any question related to the topic of your lecture. Any other questions please send to the email of the school (skolavprirode@karlin.mff.cuni.cz) or contact Jana Vráblíková. Every lecturer have to prepare short (5 to 10 lines) abstract to his lecture in advance (plain text, you can use basic LaTeX commands.)
