Interactions with Lattice Polytopes (September 14-16, 2017)


This will be a three day workshop at Otto-von-Guericke-Universität Magdeburg on lattice polytopes and their interactions with toric geometry, mirror symmetry, integer optimization, commutative algebra among others. One underlying theme of the workshop is how the interaction of these diverse fields with the area of lattice polytopes allows to reduce the complexity of difficult problems by transferring them to different settings.

We kindly ask all participants to register.

We invite PhD students to apply to give a talk (this can be done during the registration process). PhD students giving a talk will be fully reimbursed (travel and accommodation). Please note that there are only three slots for PhD-talks. Deadline to apply for a PhD-talk is 11 June 2017.

There will be a small fee of approximately 10-20 Euro (precise amount will be announced soon).

The workshop will take place at Otto-von-Guericke-Universität Magdeburg in building 02, room 311 (3rd floor).

Address: Building 02, Universitätsplatz 2, 39106, Magdeburg.

Directions: To get to the university you can take one of the following tram lines (network plan):

From the tram station "Universität" it is just a few meters. Please have a look at the interactive map of the campus.


We will book hotel rooms for the speakers. We kindly ask all other participants to make their own lodging arrangements. The sleep & go Hotel Magdeburg (cheap and close to the university), the Hotel Ratswaage Magdeburg (more expensive and close to the city center) and the artHOTEL Magdeburg (in the famous Hundertwasser building in the city center) are offering us group rates. Please register in order to benefit from the group rates. Other hotel options are the InterCityHotel (close to the main station) and Motel One (in the city center).
