**Abstract**

This talk will be based on joint work with Borozan, Basu, Conforti and Zambelli. We extend a theorem of Lovasz characterizing maximal lattice-free convex sets. This result has implications in integer programming. In particular we show a ono-to-one correspondance between these sets and minimal inequalities.
