this is the second announcement of ALCOMA 20
(international conference on algebraic combinatorics and applications).
It will take place in Kloster Banz close to Lichtenfels and Bamberg, Germany, from March 29th to April 3th, 2020.
The intention is to bring together representatives of research groups that
work in particular in the following fields:
- Algebraic coding theory
- Design theory
- Finite geometry
- Finite group actions
- Finite fields
- Association schemes
- Subspace codes
- Rank-metric codes
- Distance regular graphs
- Frame theory
- Combinatorial algorithms
- Applications: focussing on, but not limited to
data transmission, cryptography (traditional, post-quantum, code-based),
storage (nano-structures, distributed, DNA)
network coding, private information retrieval,
batch codes, locally recoverable codes,
CPU cooling, CPU security.
There will be invited talks by:
- Peter Cameron, St. Andrews, Great Britain
- Fabrizio Catanese, University of Bayreuth, Germany
- Bence Csajbók, Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest, Hungary
- Emily King, University of Bremen, Germany and Colorado State University, USA
