Of coarse! Quasi-isometries and groups: rigidity and classification

There will be research talks in addition to the following three minicourses:
  • Quasi-isometric rigidity for certain classes of solvable groups                                         (Tullia Dymarz, University of Wisconsin) [abstract]
  • The asymptotic geometry of certain Artin groups                                                              (Jingyin Huang, Ohio State University) [abstract]
  • Analysis on boundaries of hyperbolic groups                                                                       (John MacKay, University of Bristol) [abstract]

Here is the complete schedule.  The talks will be in the Centro Polivalente, very near the Hotel Isolabella.  If you have not registered on Sunday evening you can do it on Monday morning at 9:00am in the Centro Polivalente.  Please check the map of the island to see how to get there.  (Here is also a picture of the Centro Polivalente during a talk of the European Federalist Movement: there were not whiteboards as we have bought them after the picture was taken.)


The conference will run from Monday, September 9th at 9:30am (begin of first minicourse) until Saturday, September 14th at 1pm (end of the last minicourse).
