The study of error-correcting codes have posed a significantly large number of intriguing questions in several areas of mathematics such as algebra, number theory, combinatorics, algebraic geometry etc. In this workshop, which is supported by CIMPA, i.e., the International Centre of Pure and Applied Mathematics (based in France). we are going to present several lectures on the usage of techniques in finite geometry in the study of error-correcting codes. Starting from basics, covering a large spectrum of topics in error-correcting codes, finite geometry and combinatorics, we aspire to give the participants an exposure to the most current research problems in this area. The lectures will be supplemented by discussions/tutorial sessions that will provide the participants ample opportunities to work out problems and clarify their doubts with the lecturers who are among the leading experts in this area of research.
