Workshop: Coding Theory and Geometry


The purpose of this meeting is to bring together people from Algebraic Geometry and Discrete Mathematics to learn about methods, theoretical results and algorithms in algebraic coding theory. The character of the meeting is informal, with several longer introductory talks aimed at a broader audience. There is room for shorter contributed talks. Participants are encouraged to engage in discussions.
