Toric geometry and applications

Sunday, June 5, 2011 - 8:00pm to Friday, June 10, 2011 - 7:59pm

The goal of this meeting is to bring together researchers from a wide range of topics in toric geometry, such as
* The geometry of toric varieties,
* Effective aspects of toric geometry,
* Toric geometry and mirror symmetry,
* Tropical geometry and algebraic statistics,
* Toric and arithmetic geometry.
The research lectures on some of these topics will be preceded by an introductory lecture by an expert.
