Title: Introduction to Poncelet porisms and ramifications

Abstract: The Poncelet theorem is one of the most beautiful results from projective geometry. Despite its long history, it again and again re-appears and reincarnates connecting various fields of mathematics. We will review a wreath of topics from classical to modern ones.
