Short description of the event: 

The school's lectures will be mainly aimed at Ph. D. students and young researchers, and should be of interest for all researchers in this area of
mathematics, as it should cover many of the combinatorial, topological, algebraic and geometric aspects of the topic. Participants are
encouraged to propose contributed talks of 30 minutes. The workshop will include these and a small number of invited talks on recent advances in the field.
