**Spring School and Workshop on Polytopes**

Mars 11-15, 2019, Ruhr University Bochum

**Spring School Monday & Tuesday**

The Spring School is designed for advanced bachelor, master and PhD
students. The aim is to prepare the participants in such a way that they
can follow the lectures of the subsequent workshop. It consists of three
crash courses:

    Geometry of Polytopes, Monday (2x2h), Tim Römer (Osnabrück),
    Random Polytopes, Tuesday (2h), Pierre Calka (Rouen),
    Face Enumeration, Tuesday (2h), Hailun Zheng (Michigan).

**Workshop Wednesday to Friday**

The Workshop's topics include (but are not limited to)

    face enumeration,
    the study of special classes of polytopes, such as simplicial,
balanced, centrally symmetric and flag polytopes,
    high-dimensional aspects and threshold phenomena,
    asymptotic and approximation properties.

The variety of topics is reflected by the list of invited speakers:

    Imre Bárány (Budapest),
    Martin Henk (Berlin),
    Eran Nevo (Jerusalem),
    Isabella Novik (Seattle),
    Matthias Reitzner (Osnabrück),
    Elisabeth Werner (Cleveland).

The principal goal is to bring together researchers having a
probabilistic or a non-probabilistic angle on these topics, to exchange
ideas and to stimulate new collaborations. Additionally to invited
speakers' talks there will be a limited number of 30 minutes contributed
talks. The latter are selected among the registered participants by the
