Finite Geometries

Fourth Irsee Conference


Sunday 14 to Saturday 20 September 2014


Organisers: Dina Ghinelli,  Dieter Jungnickel, Michel Lavrauw, Alexander Pott

This conference extends the series of previous meetings which took place at the Isle of Thorns (2000), in Oberwolfach (2001), and in Irsee (2003, 2006 and 2011). As before, the conference topics are

  • Combinatorial structures in Galois geometries;

  • Algebraic curves and hypersurfaces 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


  • Simeon Ball (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Barcelona)

  • Aart Blokhuis (Eindhoven University of Technology)

  • Ilaria Cardinali (Università di Siena)

  • Jim Davis (University of Richmond)

  • Gohar Kyureghyan (Universität Magdeburg)

  • Giuseppe Marino (Seconda Università di Napoli)

  • Gary McGuire (University College Dublin)
