(Virtual) 3rd International Meeting on Geometric Group Theory and Low Dimensional Topology

Date: November 3 and 4, 2022

Organizers: Stephan Rosebrock and Jens Harlander

The meeting focusses on homotopy theory in low dimensions and combinatorial and geometric group theory. The first meeting took place in February, 2018 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Since then there is a strong collaboration between working groups in Argentina, Germany, the UK, and USA, which is continued by this meeting.

If you wish to participate in the meeting and listen to the talks, please let us know by email and provide your name, affiliation and email address.

The meeting will work via Cisco Webex. You will receive a link to log in two days in advance. No software installation will be necessary. We also provide a "Homotopy Cafe", where we can meet apart from the talks. You will receive a link of this also.
