Best paper award at MFCS 2022

We are happy to announce that Torsten Mütze (left in the picture), assistant professor in the Theory and Foundations Research Division, has won the Best Paper Award at the 47th International Symposium on Mathematical Foundations of Computer Science (MFCS 2022) for the paper "The Hamilton compression of highly symmetric graphs", authored jointly with his student Arturo Merino (TU Berlin; middle) and Petr Gregor (Charles University Prague; right). The paper proposes a new graph parameter that measures the amount of symmetry present in its Hamilton cycles, and it investigates this parameter for a wide range of interesting highly-symmetric graphs. It combines methods from combinatorics, number theory and algebra, and connects the new parameter to several related problems that researchers have studied intensively. The MFCS best paper award is sponsored by the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science.
