About this seminar

In spring 2020, many researchers were stranded working from home, and conferences were cancelled. This online seminar is meant to fill in the gap in communication in the field of constraint satisfaction problem, its many variants, and any relevant mathematical background including universal algebra, logic, combinatorics, and topology.


To accomodate as many time zones as possible, the meetings will usually happen at 3pm UTC (5pm in most of Europe, 4pm in the UK, 11am on the east coast of US, and 8am on the west coast of US).


The talks will take place on Zoom. Since October, we are using the following Zoom link (downloading the Zoom software might be requested by a popup):


The link is also provided in every talk announcement.

Talk recordings

The talks are usually recorded. We publish the recordings on Youtube at Jakub’s channel. The videos appear with a small delay that is needed to process and edit the recording.


All the talks will be also regularly uploaded to the calendar on this site.

Mailing list

Future talks will be announced on this website and through a mailing list that we set up for this purpose. If you would like to be on the list, you can subscribe by sending the line:
