Arrangements: topology, combinatorics and stability

University of Pisa, 3-6 February 2016

The idea of the meeting is to gather a small and heterogeneous group of researchers working on configuration spaces and arrangements of subspaces, with special interest in the interplay between combinatorics and topology, in homological stability and in representation theory. An important role will be played by hyperplane and toric arrangements, reflection groups, braid groups and combinatorial models. We plan to have a rather small number of talks in an informal context, so as to allow ample time for discussions and collaboration.
