Guarantor of the Scientific council in the field of Computer Science

 Jan Kratochvíl

"I greatly appreciate the patrons of Czech science and their support of development and popularization of Czech science through NF Neuron. And I'm honored to participate in NF Neuron activities. A Neuron award for top Czech scientists represents an impulse for their further professional growth and visibility beyond the boundaries of their disciplines. Furthermore, it increases their visibility in their homeland, as they are often better known abroad than in the Czech Republic."

Jan Kratochvíl is an expert in theoretical computer science and combinatorics. His research interests lie in structural and algorithmic graph theory, computational complexity, and discrete and computational geometry. He studied at Charles University and worked at the University of Oregon, Université Metz, and LaBRI Bordeaux. From 2012-2020, he was the Dean of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics at Charles University. In 2002-2010 he was the president of the Czech Mathematical Society.

Jan Kratochvíl is a co-author of almost two hundreds of scientific papers in international journals and conference proceedings, with 1956 citations and an H-index of 25 (according to WOS). In the evaluation, he was ranked among the top scientists in both computer science and mathematics. He has been the scientific council guarantor for the computer science field at NF Neuron since 2023.
