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 workshop consists of a two-day mini-course followed by a three-day lecture series.

Geometry 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 new directions of research and new problems which will direct future research in the spirit of Thurston's original program.

Mini-Course
There will 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 junior researchers. Participants interested in attending the mini-course should register online for funding to attend both the mini-course and lecture series.

The Lecture Series
There will be a three-day lecture series held on August 29-31 at the HMI. The lecture series will consist of lectures and discussion sessions to discuss recent advances in the field and propose future directions of study.

Goals  

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/, 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.
