CANCELLED - Packing, Tiling and Optimizing (2020 CIMPA School postponed due to Covid 19)






This  school  aims  to  introduce  young  researchers  and  students  to  actual research  problems  in  the  field  of  tilings,  packings  and  optimization.  In particular,  we  shall  focus  on  possible  original  interactions between  these thematics, as well  as connections with more classic fields as number theory, transportation modeling or word combinatorics. There shall be six long courses, which consist of lectures as well as training sessions (at least half of the time – since  it  is  the  best  way  to  see  what  participants  with  very  different backgrounds really understand). We also plane an « open problem » session, the goal of which is to propose possible new research axes to the participants. An excursion is  planned the  first  day  in  order  to  facilitate  contact  among participants and lecturers for the rest of the week (the goal of sport activities is similar).

Official language of the school:  English
