This reunion workshop is for long-term participants in the program "Geometry of Polynomials" held in the Spring 2019 semester. It will provide an opportunity to meet old and new friends. Moreover, we hope that it will give everyone a chance to reflect on the progress made during the semester and since, and sketch which directions the field should go in the future. In an effort to keep things informal and to encourage open discussion, none of the activities will be recorded. Participation in the workshop is by invitation only.

Invited Participants: 

Bibhas Adhikari (IIT Kharagpur), Petter Brändén (KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm), Johannes Buchmann (TU Darmstadt), Péter Csikvári (Eötvös Loránd University), Papri Dey (Max Planck Institute (MIS, Leipzig)), Chris Godsil (University of Waterloo), Leonid Gurvits (City University of New York), Bill Helton (UC San Diego), Mario Kummer (TU Berlin), Rafael Mendes de Oliveira (University of Toronto), Pablo Parrilo (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), Will Perkins (University of Illinois at Chicago), Raman Sanyal (Goethe University Frankfurt), Alistair Sinclair (UC Berkeley), Levent Tunçel (University of Waterloo)
