This is the first in a series of short workshops jointly organized by the Geometry/Topology groups in Bonn, Nijmegen, and Utrecht, all situated along the Lower Rhine. The focus lies on the development and application of new structures in geometry and topology such as Lie groupoids, differentiable stacks, Lie algebroids, generalized complex geometry, topological quantum field theories, higher categories, homotopy algebraic structures, higher operads, derived categories, and related topics.

Limited financial support is available. If you need support, please add a request on your registration webform with a brief justification. Please note that the workshop is relatively local in scope, so that we might be able to cover your accommodation but probably not your travel expenses.
The conference dinner will be on Thursday evening at 19:00h at the restaurant Tuscolo which is about 300m from MPIM:
