On this site you find all conferences, workshops and seminars that have been or will be (financially and organisationally) supported by the DFG priority programme „Geometry at Infinity“.
The purpose of the meeting is to study relationships between local and global invariants in Riemannian Geometry. Our intention is to bring together experts in the field as well as young mathematicians.

11Topological and equivariant rigidity in the presence of lower curvature bounds15Spaces and Moduli Spaces of Riemannian Metrics with Curvature Bounds on compact and non-compact Manifolds
This workshop is intended as the continuation of a series of highly successful international conferences centered around the analysis and geometry of gauge-theoretically deﬁned moduli spaces.
Gauge-theoretically deﬁned moduli spaced often exhibit interesting geometry at inﬁnity. In many interesting cases they are non-compact, carry special metrics (often hyperkähler) and ideally limit to certain asymptotic models. Their description requires tools from geometry and global analysis.
We intend to bring together a number of internationally renowned experts as well as younger researchers in the ﬁeld.

The goal of the conference is to bring together researchers in Geometric Analysis and Geometric Topology. We will also have an informal panel discussions about academic job markets in Europe and a meeting and discussion with an expert on impostor syndrome.
The conference is funded by the Gender Equality funds of the SPP Geometry at Infinity and our speakers are all women. Everyone is welcome to participate.

08Parabolics and invariants
The Riemannian Topology Meeting (RTM) is an irregularly recurring activity addressing mathematicians interested in the interplay of algebraic and geometric topology with riemannian geometry. Its tradition reaches back to 2012 during which it took place at the universites of Fribourg, Karlsruhe and Göttingen.
This RTM, taking place at the University of Fribourg, focuses on fostering the mathematical intercommunication between the research groups in Augsburg, Fribourg and Karlsruhe, which are participating in the SPP 2026 DFG project.

10Duality and the coarse assembly map
During the conference at University Oldenburg we shall gather international experts as well as young researchers in the field of geometric analysis and mathematical physics with a focus on the following three mutually related topics
1. Spectral geometry of singular (and non-compact) spaces
2. Geometric flows and curvature problems on singular spaces
3. Geometric analysis and mathematical physics
