Finite Geometry Workshop 2019

January 31 – February 3, 2019

University of Szeged, Szeged, Hungary


This is a 4-days workshop about finite geometry, Galois fields, coding theory and combinatorics.

The talks will deal with the following subjects:

  • Finite fields and Galois geometries
  • Algebraic graph theory
  • Independent sets in hypergraphs
  • Arcs and caps from cubic curves and their applications in coding theory
  • Geometry of the Hermitian varieties
  • Objects in finite planes and their collineation groups
