Major International Workshop Hosted by the Hamilton Mathematics Institute, Trinity College Dublin
Posted on 31 August 2015
The 11th annual William Rowan Hamilton Geometry and Topology Workshop was hosted by the Hamilton Mathematics Institute, Trinity College Dublin last week from 25-29 August 2015. The annual directed workshop consisted of a two-day mini-workshop followed by a three-day lecture series.
The international workshop provides a valuable forum for the international geometry and topology community to meet and collaborate. An array of international speakers from the US, Australia and Europe converged over the five day event to discuss ‘Interactions between Three and Four Manifolds’ and recent advances in the field and propose future directions of study.
The two-day workshop aimed at junior researchers was delivered by Martin Scharlemann, Santa Barbara, and David Gay, Georgia, on Bridging Classical Three and Four Manifold Theory.
The event was sponsored by the Hamilton Mathematics Institute at Trinity College Dublin; Boston College; the National Science Foundation; and the Science Foundation of Ireland. Sponsors 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.Further information available at: http://www.hamilton.tcd.ie/events/gt/gt2015.htm
