**Title**: Real and Complex Line Arrangements

**D****ate/Time:** March 21, 2018 / 15:40 - 16:30

**Place:** FENS 2019

**Abstract:** There are many natural problems of interest concerning the arrangement of lines in the real or complex projective plane related to the combinatorial properties of the resulting cell complex. In this talk I first wish to introduce some of these problems and some recent developments about them. Finally, I will present certain realizability results about a certain subclass of line arrangements, called nets, that we obtained in our joint work with A. Bassa.
