Extremal combinatorics is a central branch of modern combinatorics, concerned with problems of estimating the maximum or minimum possible size of a collection of finite objects satisfying certain requirements. This field has seen explosive growth in recent years and ideas from the area have seen application to many seemingly unrelated areas, including number theory, computer science, discrete geometry and design theory. This workshop will bring together many of the leading researchers in this area, both established and rising stars, to discuss the latest advances.
