  General Description
The conference will be held from May 28th through May 30th at the City College of New York and on May 31st at the CUNY Graduate Center.

The conference will focus on a variety of topics in geometric and combinatorial group theory as well as on algorithmic and computational problems involving groups, with applications to cryptography.

More specifically, this includes combinatorial, asymptotic and probabilistic methods in group theory and algebraic cryptography, group actions, hyperbolicity, growth, random walks, etc.

This conference continues the series of GAGTA (Geometric and Asymptotic Group Theory with Applications) conferences. Previous GAGTA conferences took place in: The conference is generously supported by the National Science Foundation as well as by the City College Dean of Science Chris Li and Dean of Engineering Joe Barba.
