this is the first official announcement of Algebraic combinatorics and applications (ALCOMA15), a conference on designs, codes and related topics.
This conference is dedicated to the memory of our friend and colleague Axel Kohnert († 11.12.2013).
It will take place in Kloster Banz close to Bamberg, Germany, from March 15 to March 20, 2015.
ALCOMA15 is a meeting of COST Action IC1104 http://www.network-coding.eu/. The intention is to bring together representatives of research groups that work in particular in the field of constructive theory of designs and codes, or on closely related topics. A special focus is on q-analogues of designs and random network coding.
There will be invited talks (so far) by:
- Michael Braun (Darmstadt)
- Eimear Byrne (Dublin)
- Jan de Beule (Ghent)
- Tor Helleseth (Bergen)
- Thomas Honold (Hangzhou)
- Jonathan Jedwab (Vancouver)
- Gabriele Nebe (Aachen)
- Daniel Panario (Carleton)
- Alexander Pott (Magdeburg)
- Dejan Vukobratovic (Novi Sad)
