[DMANET] Polytopes-Algebra-Computation @ ACA 2015: Call for Contributions

Polytopes -- Algebra -- Computation

Special Session of Applications of Computer Algebra (ACA 2015)

July 20 - 23, 2015, Kalamata, Greece

The special session on "Polytopes-Algebra-Computation", in the context of Applications of Computer Algebra (ACA 2015), will focus on the interaction of polyhedral geometry with algebra and algebraic geometry from a computational viewpoint.

Topics of interest lie at the intersection of polyhedral geometry, algebraic geometry and algorithms, including but not limited to:

* Polytopes in algebra and algebraic geometry
* Newton polytopes
* Computational Ehrhart theory
* Algebraic aspects of polytopes
* Algebraic applications of computational geometry
* Applications of Polytopes (e.g., statistics, combinatorics etc.)
* Software - 4ti2, barvinok, Gfan, LattE, Normaliz, polymake, etc.

Researchers in these and related fields are invited to contribute by presenting their work at the special session. If you are interested in contributing, please send a short abstract to

Zafeirakis Zafeirakopoulos <zafeirakopoulos@gmail.com>

Deadline for submissions is May 15th, 2015. For more information, please visit
