Discrete Geometry and Alexandrov surfaces

to take place in

Updated on: 1 September 2013 -- Contact:

The lectures of the conference will take place at the University of Bucharest, Faculty of Mathematics (a red circle on the map below). For evenings: In walking distance (500 m south) is old Bucharest (Lipscani) with small restaurants and bars. 500 m further south, still in walking distance, is Calea Șerban Vodă 36 (a blue Z on the map below), where we can meet (as earlier usual in the Hilbert space). The university hotel “Academica”, Bd. M. Kogălniceanu 36-46, is adjacent to Facultatea de Drept (a green star on the map below).
