Contact Geometry Workshop, 28 Jul - 1 Aug 2014

Publication date:

The purpose of this workshop will be to bring together researchers and students working in contact geometry and related areas in symplectic topology, including topics such as pseudoholomorphic curves, h-principles, confoliations, symplectic dynamics, mapping class groups, and Stein manifolds. While the majority of global results about contact manifolds known thus far are specific to dimension three, recent years have also seen considerable progress in higher-dimensional contact topology, and this workshop specifically aims at introducing high-dimensional techniques to participants who might be more familiar with low dimensions, or vice versa. The programme will be a mixture of ordinary research talks with more in-depth minicourses on topics of recent interest.
