Finite Geometry Workshop 2023

October 29 – November 1, 2023

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
  • Algebrai curves over finite fields and their applications in post-quantum crpytography
  • Algebraic graph theory
  • Independent sets in hypergraphs
  • Arcs and caps from cubic curves and their applications in coding theory
  • Objects in finite planes and their collineation groups
