Workshop on Curvature and Global Shape

August 1 - August 7, 2021

Organizing Committee:

Hans-Joachim Hein, University of Münster

Michael Wiemeler, University of Münster

Burkhard Wilking, 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, 2 August, through the afternoon of Friday, 6 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 CRC 1442 Geometry: Deformations and Rigidity, SPP2026 Geometry at Infinity and Münster Mathematics Cluster of Excellence.

We hope that the workshop can take place in the usual format. Pending the development of the pandemic we might switch to virtual or hybrid format though.

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.

Child care is available free of charge for all participants of the workshop.

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, 2021. 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.
