William Rowan Hamilton
and Topology Workshop is an annual directed workshop held at the
Hamilton Mathematics Institute (HMI), Trinity College Dublin, Ireland.
The workshop consists of a two-day
mini-course followed by a three-day lecture series.
and Groups after Thurston
This past year has seen the passing of William P. Thurston (1946-2012)
whose work and conjectural program infuenced much of the research in
the field. Also, recent progress has seen most of Thurston's
conjectural program now solved. This year's workshop aims to consider
directions of research and new problems which will direct future
research in the spirit of Thurston's original program.
be a two-day mini-course held at the HMI on
August 27-28. The mini-course will be given by Ken Bromberg (Utah) on Groups acting on
Quasi-Trees. The minicourse is aimed at
researchers. Participants interested in
attending the mini-course should
register online for funding to attend both the mini-course and lecture
There will be a three-day lecture series held on August 29-31
HMI. The lecture series will consist of lectures and discussion
sessions to discuss recent advances in
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 http://www.hamilton.tcd.ie/events/gt/gt.htm/,
Boston College, the GEAR Network, the
Institute, the National Science Foundation and the Science Foundation
of Ireland, have
grants to co-sponsor this event as part of
their commitment to fostering ties between the US scientific community
and the European scientific community.
