The term ``Intuitive Geometry'' does not occur in the AMS subject
classification. It was coined by László Fejes Tóth
to refer to the kind
of geometry which, in Hilbert's words, can be explained to and can appeal
to the ``man of the street.''
It includes great parts of combinatorial geometry,
the theory of packing,
covering and tiling,
convexity, computational geometry, rigidity theory,
the geometry of numbers,
crystallography and classical differential geometry.
Our conference will be the 7th meeting under this title.
One of the objectives of the forthcoming conference is to commemorate
the highly influential work and character of László Fejes
the late director of the Rényi Institute,
who passed away two years ago, at the age of ninety.
He was one of the founding fathers of discrete and combinatorial geometry.
