Short description of the event: 

This workshop is organized by the Centro di Ricerca Matematica Ennio De Giorgi of the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa, jointly with
the Center for Discrete Mathematics, Theoretical Computer Science and Applications (DIMATIA) of Charles University and with the National Research Council of Italy (CNR).
Its aim is to reflect some key recent advances in combinatorics, and to demonstrate the broad spectrum of techniques and its relationship to other fields of mathematics, particularly to geometry, logic and number theory.

The invited speakers include: Imre Barany, Bela Bollobas, Maria Chudnovsky, Zeev Dvir, Zoltan Furedi, Patrice Ossona de Mendez, Alex Scott, Micha Sharir, Jozsef Solymosi, Endre Szemeredi and Luca Trevisan.
