The Research Workshop of the ``Dynamics on moduli spaces of geometric structures'' will concentrate on some of the following general interrelated themes:
(1) Geometric structures on the spaces of geometric structures which extend and generalize classical constructions on Teichmüller spaces, such as the WeilPetersoon metric, the pressure metric, the Teichmüller metric and its geodesic flow, FenchelNielsen coordinates, FockGoncharov ThursonPenner coordinates, and the symplectic and Poisson geometries
(2) Relations with harmonic maps, Riemann surfaces, complex geometry: specifically Higgs bundles, holomorphic differentials (quadratic, cubic, etc.) as parameters for representations of the fundamental group, hyperkähler and complex symplectic geometry of moduli spaces, lifts of Teichmüller geodesic flows to flat bundles of character varieties
(3) Asymptotic properties of higher Teichmüller spaces, including generalized measured geodesic laminations, CullerMorganShalen asymptotics of character varieties, degenerations of geometric structures and discrete subgroups
(4) Actions of mapping class groups and outer automorphism groups, properness criteria for Anosov representations and their generalizations, properness criteria for nondiscrete representations, chaotic actions of mapping class groups and the monodromy map from structures to representations
(5) Classification of exotic geometric structures, tameness criteria, generalizations of ending laminationtype invariants to higher rank structures, rigidity and flexibility for thin subgroups, arithmeticity conditions, and geometric transitions
