Marthe Bonamy is a CNRS researcher at the University of Bordeaux since 2015. She is interested in structural and algorithmic graph theory, with a special fondness for old but simple questions that remain elusive. One of her long-term research obsessions lies in the field of combinatorial reconfiguration. She was invited speaker at several international events, including the Cracow Conference on Graph Theory 2018, CanaDAM 2019, British Combinatorics Conference 2021, Discrete Mathematics Days 2022, and MFCS 2023.
Maria Chudnovsky received her PhD in 2003 from Princeton University, where she currently is a professor. Her research interests are in graph theory and combinatorics. She was part of a team of four researchers that proved the strong perfect graph theorem, which won them the prestigious Fulkerson prize in 2009. In 2012, Dr Chudnovsky received the MacArthur Foundation Fellowship, and in 2014, she was an invited speaker at the International Congress of Mathematicians.
Manuela Fischer is a lecturer at the department of Computer Science at ETH Zurich. Prior to that, she was a postdoctoral researcher at Reykjavik University in the group of Magnús M. Halldórsson. She did her PhD at the Institute of Theoretical Computer Science in the Computer Science department of ETH Zurich, advised by Mohsen Ghaffari, where her research was supported by a Google PhD Fellowship.
Marcin finished his PhD in 2012 at University of Warsaw. He spent a year in Bergen and Warwick as a postdoc, and recently spent a year in Copenhagen on sabbatical. His main research interests are in graph algorithms, especially parameterized algorithms and algorithms for sparse graph classes, as well as structural graph theory.

Paweł Rzążewski completed his PhD at University of Warsaw in 2015. Currently he is a researcher at Warsaw University of Technology and University of Warsaw. His professional interests include many aspects of structural and algorithmic graph theory, especially algorithms for various graph colorings problems.
Miloš Stojaković received his PhD from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich in 2005, and currently he is a professor at the University of Novi Sad. In 2008 he received the "Dr Zoran Đinđić Award", awarded yearly for the best young scientist by the Provincial Secretariat for Science of Vojvodina. His scientific fields of interest include positional games, discrete and computational geometry, discrete random structures, combinatorial algorithms and graph theory.
