ICMS Workshop | Polyhedral Products: a Path Between Homotopy Theory and Geometric Group Theory

22 Feb 2023, by ablahatherell in Sponsored events

5 – 9 June 2023

ICMS, Bayes Centre, Edinburgh, UK

Supported by the Heilbronn Institute Small Grants Scheme

The overall aim of the workshop is to generate research opportunities at the intersection of the homotopy theory and geometric group theory associated to polyhedral products. These two areas have substantial common ground but to date have had only limited interaction. The workshop will significantly amplify the existing connections and investigate novel interactions between these two areas.
