Original Announcement

This workshop will be devoted to additive combinatorics and its applications in mathematics and computer science. One of the chief concerns of additive combinatorics is the classification of sets or functions that are only approximately algebraically structured, and results in this direction have turned out to be useful in diverse parts of mathematics and theoretical computer science, for instance in finding linear structures in various sets of integers and in property testing. Conversely, the need for stronger results to cater for applications has driven the development of additive combinatorics. The aim of this workshop is to gather researchers from all sides of these developments in order to tackle some of the area's fundamental problems.

The main topics for the workshop are:

Material from the workshop

A list of participants.

The workshop schedule.

A report on the workshop activities.

A list of open problems.
