Connections for Women: Teichmuller Theory and Kleinian Groups August 16, 2007 - August 17, 2007
Registration Deadline: August 10, 2007 almost 17 years ago
To apply for Funding you must register by: May 16, 2007 about 17 years ago
Parent Program:
Organizers Moon Duchin, Caroline Series
Each day of this two-day workshop will feature two mainly expository lectures in the morning aimed at the level of advanced graduate students and new postdocs in geometry and topology. These talks on the themes of the Teichmuller theory and Kleinian groups program will introduce viewpoints and tools with broad applicability. In the afternoons, women working in fields in or around geometric topology (including hyperbolic geometry, low-dimensional topology, metric geometry, and geometric group theory) will give shorter talks in their areas of expertise. Learning who's doing what is a main goal of the workshop. There will be open blocks of time for interaction and conversations, and both men and women are very welcome to attend.
