Combinatorial Designs and Codes
CODESCO'24 is the second edition of the conference Combinatorial Designs and Codes (Rijeka, Croatia, 2021). The goal of the conference is to bring together researchers interested in combinatorial design theory, coding theory, graph theory, algebraic combinatorics and finite geometry, with particular emphasis on establishing new synergies among them, and new applications to other fields and to the real world, including artificial intelligence, communication networks, cryptography and machine learning.
The main topics of the conference are:
Construction of combinatorial designs, codes and graphs related to finite groups, finite fields and finite geometries.
Construction of linear codes from graphs and combinatorial designs.
Construction of error-correcting codes, quantum codes and network codes related to combinatorial structures.
- Latin squares, quasigroups, and related algebras.
- Permutation polynomials over finite fields.
The scientific programme is created by 50 minute lectures of invited speakers and of 20 minute contributed talks. So, the talks presented at the conference will also cover other related topics suggested by the participants. The conference will give the opportunity to research faculty and young researchers in discrete mathematics to learn about the latest developments and explore different visions for their future work. The talks will cover both the theoretical and applied aspects of discrete mathematics, and the latter will be particularly beneficial for faculty and young researchers, by giving them the opportunity to learn more about contemporary applications of combinatorics to communications and information security.
The conference will take place at the Higher Technical School of Computer Engineering, Universidad de Sevilla, Campus de Reina Mercedes, Seville, Spain.
