Tropical geometry is a piecewise-linear analogue of algebraic geometry. Advances in tropical geometry enable us to use tools from discrete geometry and combinatorics for computations in algebraic geometry and commutative algebra.  This minisymposium will feature recent progress in tropical curves, tropical algebra, combinatorics, and algorithms, with applications.
