Workshop: Non-Positively Curved Groups and Spaces

The workshop will take place during the week September 18-22, 2017 at the Faculty of Mathematics of Universität Regensburg. There will be 3 mini-courses (each 3 lectures 75 min. long) and around 9 invited and contributed talks.

The poster is available here: link.

Please note that in the week following the Workshop, the Conference: Manifolds and Groups takes place at the same location!

Non-Positively Curved Groups and Spaces is the third in a series of workshops organized in Regensburg. The second was on Large Scale Dimensions and the first was on Cohomology and Large Scale Geometry.
