Euroconferences. The Institute of Applied and Computational Mathematics of the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas  in collaboration with the Department of Mathematics of the University of Crete are organizing a continuation of the series Conferences in Mathematics on Crete, sponsored mainly by the European Commission under FP6 - Marie Curie Actions (MC Conferences and Training Courses - Series of Events). The conferences will take place at the Anogia Academic Village, a conference center located in the traditional Cretan village of Anogia on the slopes of mountain Ida. Anogia has an elevation of 750 m, and is about 45 minutes by car from Heraklion, the largest city of Crete, and about half an hour from the closest point on the north coast of Crete. Living expenses (accommodation plus meals) during the conferences are estimated at about 40-60 Euro per person per day. The registration fee amounts to 250 Euro.

General Information. The European Commission supports young researchers to enable them to participate in the conference "Algebraic and Geometric Combinatorics" for training purposes. The researchers should be nationals of the countries which are Member States of the E.U. or Associated States, but there is also a certain amount of support available for young researchers from other countries as well. Graduate students are especially encouraged to participate. In general, young researchers should have a maximum of ten years research experience since obtaining a degree that gives them access to doctoral studies. (Some limited funds from other sources will also be available to support participants not belonging to the above group). The financial support may cover all or parts of the travel, living and registration expenses.

Topics: All aspects of algebraic and geometric combinatorics. More specific topics of interest include

  • Combinatorics of polytopes
  • Arrangements of hyperplanes
  • Triangulations, subdivisions, tilings and packings
  • Combinatorics and topology of complexes and partially ordered sets
  • Monomial ideals
  • Toric Geometry
  • Combinatorics of Coxeter groups
