The Workshop

The William Rowan Hamilton Geometry and Topology Workshop is an annual directed workshop held at the Hamilton Mathematics Institute (HMI), Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. This year the workshop is expanding to include a two-day mini-course to be held prior to the workshop conference.

There will be a two-day mini-course on Teichmüller Theory held at the HMI on August 30-31. The mini-course will be given by Jeff Brock and Howard Masur and is aimed at junior researchers. The mini-course will give an introduction to Teichmüller theory with a view to providing background for the workshop lecture series. Participants interested in attending the mini-course should register online for funding to attend both the mini-course and lecture series.

The Lecture Series
There will be a three-day lecture series held on September 1-3 at the HMI. The lecture series will consist of lectures and discussion sessions on the topic of The Geometry and Dynamics of Teichmüller Spaces to discuss recent advances in the field and propose future directions of study.


The goal of the William Rowan Hamilton Geometry and Topology Workshop is to provide a forum in which  the international geometry and topology community can meet annually with its European counterpart to discuss topics of an interdisciplinary nature. A major anticipated outcome of these annual workshops is the determination of future research directions, and the generation of a list of open problems in the topics of focus. The workshop has a permanent website at, where these problem lists and any lecture notes that the participants provide will be posted. Furthermore, the HMI intends to have a preprint series, whereby hard copies of the workshop results can be disseminated to research institutions worldwide.

Boston College, the Hamilton Mathematics Institute and the National Science Foundation, have generously provided grants to co-sponsor this event as part of their commitment to fostering ties between the US scientific community and the European scientific community.
