Low-dimensional Topology and Geometry in Toulouse
Month: June 2013
Date: June 24--28
Name: Low-dimensional Topology and Geometry in Toulouse
Location: Université Paul Sabatier, Institut de Mathématiques de Toulouse, Toulouse, France.
On the occasion of Michel Boileau's 60th birthday. This area has shown rapid and spectacular progress over the last few years (the Poincaré conjecture, Thurston's geometrisation conjecture, the classification of hyperbolic manifolds, Marden's conjecture, infinite virtual Betti numbers, the virtual fibration conjecture, Heegaard-Floer homology, quantum invariants, curve complexes...). Among them, the conference will address low-dimensional topology (especially dimension 3), hyperbolic and differential geometry, knot theory, applications of geometric group theory and representation theory. This conference is the last week of a thematic month dedicated to topology and symplectic/contact geometry.
