DESCRIPTION: Satellite event of the 8th European Congress of Mathem
atics\n\n
\n\nG2G2-Summer School is associated with G2G2-Minisymposia of 8EC
M. It belongs to the G2-series that are about strong and beautiful mathe
matics\, especially those involving group actions on combinatorial objects
.\n\nThe main goal of G2G2-Summer School is to bring together experts and
students to exchange ideas and to enrich their mathematical horizons with
focus on computational methods in mathematics and vertex operator algebras
. We organize two minicourses each of which is presented in ten lectures
including two problem solving sessions\, and eight colloquium talks to le
t participants see order and simplicity from possibly new perspectives and
share insights with experts. The two topics are linked together through M
ajorana Theory\, which can be viewed as a finite dimensional extraction of
vertex operator algebras.\n\nComputer algebra systems are an invaluable r
esearch tool in finite group theory. Their use is becoming increasingly wi
despread and it is now virtually compulsory for young mathematicians to ha
ve some experience with computational methods. GAP is one of the pre-emine
nt computer algebra systems. Theory of vertex operator algebras holds a pr
ominent position in recent studies of algebraic combinatorics as a rich so
urce of combinatorial structures with actions of finite groups. However\,
other connections between vertex operator algebras and finite groups have
been largely unexplored\, despite a large body of research that has now de
veloped in the field of vertex operator algebras. It is crucial that these
two rich areas of mathematics are once again united and the G2G2 school o
ffers the perfect opportunity for this. Any young researcher interested in
algebraic combinatorics and finite groups would benefit enormously from t
hese two minicourses as well as\, of course\, the opportunity to present t
heir own work and to discuss research with the other attendees.\n\nVenue:
The Summer School will be held at Hotel Planja\, Rogla. Situated at around
1500m above sea level\, its beautiful natural scenery provides pleasant c
limate conditions and stimulating working environment. For more informati
