New perspectives on Convex


CIEM, Castro Urdiales, Spain
September 3 – September 7, 2018

The summer school will consist of several 3-hours blocks of lectures, where an introduction to a fundamental topic within Convexity (classic and modern convex, discrete, integral or stochastic geometry, for example) and some aspects of the state of art of this are presented. The summer school is intended for master and Ph. D students, as well as researchers interested in any of the aspects of Convexity which will be treated. Further, some lectures delivered by researchers complementing the thematic blocks are planned.
