Shanks Conference, May 15-19

Held in conjunction with the 32nd Annual Shanks Lecture, the conference will focus on the close interrelationships between geometry and topology in low dimensions, such as in the study of surfaces and three-dimensional manifolds (3-manifolds). Emphasis will be on the powerful negative curvature and combinatorial techniques that are driving much of the current research in this area.
