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. The topic for the 2007 workshop is Pro-p groups and low dimensional topology. Specific topics include the virtual Haken and virtual fibering conjectures, large groups, pro-p groups, property tau, subgroup growth and L2-Betti numbers.


Goals  

The goal of the William Rowan Hamilton Geometery 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/, 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.



Sponsors
                                                      
Boston College, and the HMI, 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.
