The Eduard Čech Distinguished Visitor Programme has been established with the aim to significantly enhance the creative environment in the Institute by bring here highly distinguished mathematicians for prolonged periods. The visitors are expected to deliver a series of at least three lectures for the mathematical community and to essentially develop scientific collaboration with the mathematicians in the Institute.

Vojtěch Rödl belongs to the top world mathematicians in the field of combinatorics. He authored more than 300 articles. He became famous by his work in Ramsey theory but later obtained significant results in many other branches of combinatorics. Many of his results deal with Erdős's problems of which he has solved more than 20, including very difficult ones. In particular he and Peter Frankl proved the Erdős and Hanani conjecture. The method by which it was solved is referred to as Rödl nibble. His probably most famous result is a proof of the hypergraph regularity lemma, which he published with his students in a series of articles. This enables one to prove Szemerédi's theorem on arithmetic progressions in dense subsets of integers by purely combinatorial means as well as some other results of this kind.
