  General Description
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, quasi-isometries, isoperimetric functions, growth, asymptotic invariants, random walks, etc.

This conference is a sequel to the conferences on "Geometric and Asymptotic Group Theory with Applications" that took place in Manresa (Barcelona) in 2006, and in Dortmund in 2007.

This conference is generously supported by the National Science Foundation and Stevens Institute of Technology.
