Combinatorial Geometry Problems at the Algebraic Interface
Month: March 2014
Date: March 24--28
Name: Combinatorial Geometry Problems at the Algebraic Interface
Location: Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM), UCLA, Los Angeles, California.
A goal of the workshop is to enhance and foster a two-way interaction between algebraic geometers and combinatorial and computational geometers, so as (a) to allow the latter community to learn more from algebraic geometers about the known tools and techniques that are relevant to combinatorial geometry, and (b) to attract algebraic geometers to the new application area, and get them involved in the study of the numerous challenging problems in algebraic geometry that the new area raises. We expect to achieve this goal by offering several survey talks on algebraic geometry, specially tailored problem sessions, and ample time for free discussions. This workshop will include a poster session; a request for posters will be sent to registered participants in advance of the workshop. An application and registration form are available online.
