(Polytop)ics: Recent advances on polytopes

April 06 - 09, 2021
Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences

Polytopes have been present since the dawn of civilization, in the pyramids of Egypt and the platonic solids of Greece. They are fundamental objects in modern mathematics and naturally appear in many different fields, from optimization to algebraic geometry.

In recent years we have seen solutions to old problems as well as new exciting directions emerge. The aim of this conference is to provide an overview of the recent advances as well as showcasing some important questions for the future. Along with invited and contributed talks, we will have open problem sessions where participants can present a problem that they find interesting.

Confirmed Speakers are:

The deadline for submitting contributed talks is March 9, 2021. General registration deadline is March 30, 2021.

The link to the virtual event will be made available via email to the registered participants in due time.
