School on
Low-Dimensional Geometry and Topology:
Discrete and Algorithmic Aspects

minimal surface Institut Henri Poincare
Paris, Institut Henri Poincaré, June 18–22, 2018

Presentation. This is a one-week school devoted to low-dimensional geometry and topology, from both the viewpoints of mathematicians and computer scientists. The expected participants are graduate students and researchers in mathematics and computer science interested in geometric or topological aspects. This includes, not exhaustively, mathematicians working in differential, Riemannian, or topological geometry; and computer scientists working in computational geometry or topology. The goal is to foster interactions between these various communities.

Speakers. The two main speakers, each giving about 8 hours of lectures during the week, are:

Jeff Erickson Jeff Erickson (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) Joel Hass Joel Hass (University of California at Davis)

We will also invite around 12 speakers, who will give shorter lectures, to broaden the scope of the school.

Dates and Location. June 18–22, 2018, at Institut Henri Poincaré (IHP), in the center of Paris (access map). The amphitheater can accomodate 150 persons.

Registration. Attending this school is free, but registering beforehand is mandatory. Registration is not open yet; the registration deadline will not be before March 15, 2018. Free coffee breaks will be provided.

Related events. CG Week 2018 and the 34th International Symposium on Computational Geometry (SoCG) will take place in Budapest, Hungary, the preceding week. Algebraic Topological Methods in Computer Sciences (ATMCS) will take place at IST Austria, close to Vienna, the following week.

Organizing committee. It consists of a team of mathematicians and computer scientists in the East of Paris who all belong to the Bézout Labex:
