Title: Topology and combinatorics of motion planning in robotics

Abstract: I will give an overview of the concept introduced by Michael
Farber early this century to model and study the motion planning problem in
robotics. While Farber's idea proposes the use of techniques in algebraic
topology, in this talk I will focus on a discretized version of the model,
suitable for computational experiments, and real-world applications.
