The theory of expander graphs has seen increased interaction between mathematics and computer science in the last 50 years with a high dimensional theory emerging in recent years that has shown unexpected applications in both areas.

This conference will bring together mathematicians and computer scientists with a wide range of interests to hear about these developments and to discuss future directions of research.
