History of the spring schools NAFSA
The series of spring schools started in 1978 through the effort of Professor Alois Kufner and late Professor Svatopluk Fucik who, together with Professor Oldrich John, had been running a seminar on function spaces at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of the Charles University since early 1970's. The seminar was later translocated to the Mathematical Institute of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences (and later still to the Mathematical Institute of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic) and it has been working continuously up to present. The spring schools have been held every four years ever since. They have traditionally been highly attended by top scientists and lectures have been delivered by distinguished speakers from all around the world.
