Workshop on Topological Methods in Geometry

Sign in
From September 19, 2022
to September 23, 2022
Registration deadline 01 / 09 / 2022




*includes coffee breaks, lunches and social dinner.

This event will be held at the Auditorium of the Centre de Recerca Matemàtica.


Recently, there have been major breakthroughts in metric geometry including systolic topology, global geometry and macroscopic invariants for instance. The connection with several other fields in mathematics such as convex geometry, contact and symplectic geometry, or integral geometry has been made. The purpose of this workshop is to gather various people having interest in those recent advances to share their own results and their knowledge. We expect that it will be the occasion to stimulate new interactions and valuable collaborations.
