Abstract
Exploiting symmetry in integer linear programming and lattice
point counting are two difficult problems for which no good general
approach exists. In fact, standard techniques work particularly poor
on symmetric problems. In this talk we give an overview about ongoing
work on new symmetry exploiting techniques for these two fundamental 
problem classes involving lattice polytopes. We in particular present 
some new ideas of decomposing lattice polytopes and give some initial 
proof-of-concept results applying these new techniques.
