Otakar Borůvka (*May 10, 1899 -- July 22, 1995) was an outstanding personality of mathematical life in Czechoslovakia. His scientific work covered many fields of mathematics and reflected the main trends of the development of the 20th century mathematics.
Topics of the conference cover the areas of scientific interest to O. Borůvka: especially differential and functional equations, history of mathematics; the attention will be paid also to other branches of Borůvka's research interest -- algebra, geometry and graph theory.
The purpose of this symposium is to present new results connected with the scientific activity of O. Borůvka, to remember his main results and influence on mathematics, mainly in the Czech and Slovak Republics.
Conference site: The conference will start in Brno, Faculty of Science, Kotlářská 2, and will continue in Chateau Valtice (hotel ``Hubertus''), 50 km south of Brno.
