1916  Combinatorics, Probability and Computing
[OWR201919] (2019)  (14 Apr  20 Apr 2019)The main theme of this workshop was the use of probabilistic methods in combinatorics and theoretical computer science. Although these methods have been around for decades, they are being refined all the time: they are ... 
1912  Contemporary Coding Theory
[OWR201913] (2019)  (17 Mar  23 Mar 2019)Coding Theory naturally lies at the intersection of a large number of disciplines in pure and applied mathematics. A multitude of methods and means has been designed to construct, analyze, and decode the resulting ... 
1927  Differentialgeometrie im Grossen
[OWR201930] (2019)  (30 Jun  05 Jul 2019)The topics discussed at the meeting reflected current trends in global differential geometry. These topics included complex geometry, Einstein metrics, geometric flows, metric geometry and manifolds satisfying curvature bounds. 
1922  Foundations and New Horizons for Causal Inference
[OWR201925] (2019)  (26 May  01 Jun 2019)While causal inference is established in some disciplines such as econometrics and biostatistics, it is only starting to emerge as a valuable tool in areas such as machine learning and artificial intelligence. The ... 
1920  Geometry and Physics of Higgs Bundles
[OWR201923] (2019)  (12 May  18 May 2019)This workshop focused on interactions between the various perspectives on the moduli space of Higgs bundles over a Riemann surface. This subject draws on algebraic geometry, geometric topology, geometric analysis and ... 
1902  Graph Theory
[OWR20191] (2019)Graph theory is a rapidly developing area of mathematics. Recent years have seen the development of deep theories, and the increasing importance of methods from other parts of mathematics. The workshop on Graph Theory ... 
1925a  Logarithmic Enumerative Geometry and Mirror Symmetry
[OWR201927] (2019)  (16 Jun  22 Jun 2019)The new field of log enumerative geometry has formed at the crossroads of mirror symmetry, GromovWitten theory and log geometry. This workshop has been the first to promote this field and bring together the junior and ...
