- Workshop [1]

Organiser(s):

Christian Blohmann, Marius Crainic, Ioan Marcut, Ieke Moerdijk, Steffen Sagave
Date:

Thu, 2016-12-15 13:45 - Fri, 2016-12-16 17:00 This is the eighth of a series of short workshops jointly organized by the Geometry/Topology groups in Bonn, Nijmegen, Utrecht and Leuven, all situated along the Lower Rhine [6]. 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.
