Workshop on geometry and complexity theory

This will be a workshop more than a conference, with the goal to inspire research and initiate new collaborations. Towards this end, we are planning fewer talks so time can be set aside for  working groups.  Each day, in addition to regular conference lectures, we plan to have a 75 minute talk where an expert gives an overview of a promising direction for future work, and set aside time for working groups. Possible working groups include:

1. Laser method and geometry (Alman-Williams)
2. Computational methods (Conner-Hauenstein)
3. Border apolarity (Buczynski)
4. Computational invariant theory and complexity (Derksen-Makam)
