Workshop on Curvature and Global Shape

July 28-August 3, 2019

Organizing Committee:

Martin Kerin, University of Münster
Burkhard Wilking, University of Münster
Michael Wiemeler, University of Münster

The purpose of the meeting is to study relationships between local and global invariants in Riemannian Geometry. Our intention is to bring together experts in the field as well as young mathematicians.  We plan to schedule talks from the morning of Monday, 29 July, through the afternoon of Friday, 2 August. The program of the Workshop is structured so that beyond the lectures there will be many opportunities for intensive discussions. The workshop will be funded by SPP2026 Geometry at Infinity and  Münster Mathematics Cluster of Excellence.

We expect to cover all local costs for invited participants. If no other source of reimbursement is available, we may reimburse travel costs provided that there is enough funding. You may apply for travel costs on the registration form.

Please register early using the registration page. If you intend to give a lecture and you are not sure about the title as yet, you may submit the title for your talk later. The registration deadline is June 1, 2019. People who register after this date will not be considered for reimbursement.

The math building is located at the Coesfelder Kreuz, Einsteinstrasse 62. It is the tall building with 9 floors.

All lectures will take place in lecture room M2 of the lecture hall building. The registration will be at SR0 on the ground floor of the Mathematical building and the coffee breaks will be in the Common Room on the ground in the building to the left of the Mathematical building. Please note that the Common Room is only available during the breaks. If you need some place to work, please use the library or the SR0.

Weather permitting, there will be a bicycle tour on Wednesday afternoon. People who want to participate in the tour and need a bicycle should let us know on the first day of the workshop, if they have not already done so.

The conference party will take place on Friday evening.

For the bicycle tour and party accompanying persons are welcome to attend.
