Graph Drawing and Combinatorial Geometry Workshop

11/13/2023 - 11/17/2023
Erdős Center


WS2 poster


Extremal and structural combinatorics have experienced unprecedented progress in recent decades. Combinatorial, algebraic, and probabilistic methods have been used to answer long-standing geometric questions, such as Erdős's problems on incidences and distinct distances, the Hirsch conjecture, the sphere packing problem in 8 dimensions, and various results about graph representations. On the other hand, geometric techniques and ideas have been widely used to advance the above disciplines. This workshop, part of the special semester on Discrete Geometry and Convexity, will bring together leading experts and young researchers in combinatorial geometry and graph drawing. The goal is to share recent advances, identify new research directions, and foster collaboration between the above fields.
