Finite Geometries

Third Irsee Conference


Sunday 19 to Saturday 25 June 2011


Organisers: Dina Ghinelli, James Hirschfeld, Dieter Jungnickel, Jef Thas

This conference extends the series of previous meetings which took place at the Isle of Thorns (2000), in Oberwolfach (2001), and in Irsee (2003 and 2006). As before, the conference topics are

  • Combinatorial structures in finite projective spaces;

  • Algebraic curves over finite fields;

  • Geometric and algebraic coding theory;

  • Finite groups and geometries;

  • Algebraic design theory.


Participation in this conference is by invitation only. All participants may submit an abstract for a contributed talk on some aspect of their research related to the main topics of this workshop; these talks will last 20 minutes.

Main speakers


  • Rosemary Bailey (Queen Mary College, University of London)

  • Peter Cameron (Queen Mary College, University of London)

  • Massimo Giulietti (Università di Perugia)

  • Jonathan Jedwab (Simon Fraser University, Vancouver)

  • Michel Lavrauw (Università di Padova)

  • Klaus Metsch (Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen)

  • Cheryl Praeger (University of Western Australia, Perth)


Please send all correspondence, other than the abstract, to Dieter, using the following conference email address:

In due course, there will be links to the registration form and the sample abstract, as well as detailed information about the modes of payments. For any questions, you may also consult any one of the organisers:
