ABOUT THE SUMMER SCHOOL

The landscape of algebraic coding theory has undergone major changes in the last years. In particular, the theory of error-correcting codes has inspired many mathematicians who were interested in applying techniques from algebra, algebraic geometry and discrete mathematics in order to progress on questions in information processing. Indeed, coding theory lies at the intersection of several disciplines in pure and applied mathematics such as algebra, number theory, probability theory, statistics, combinatorics, complexity theory, and statistical physics, which all have helped in the past to increase our knowledge in communication theory.

This summer school aims to focus the attention on different algebraic aspects of the theory of error-correcting codes. The summer school is structured in four mini-courses, each of which is intended to deepen a specific aspect of coding theory.

The details about the mini-courses will be announced soon.

In addition to the mini-courses, open problem sessions and contributed talk sessions are planned during the week, according to the detailed program schedule. The event is dedicated to junior researchers, doctorate students and Postdocs, as well as other established researchers that are interested in the topic.
