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 Michigan) [abstract]
  • The asymptotic geometry of certain Artin groups                                                              (Jingyin Huang, Max Planck Institute for Mathematics, Bonn) [abstract]
  • Analysis on boundaries of hyperbolic groups                                                                       (John MacKay, University of Bristol) [abstract]

In addition to the minicourses there will be three 75' morning talks to complement the minicourses and nine 45' afternoon talks.

Morning speakers: TBA

Afternoon speakers: TBA

Here you will find the complete schedule as soon as available.  The talks will be in the Centro Polivalente, very near the Hotel Isolabella.  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).
