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“.
An international conference to bring together experts in various fields working on the general scheme of approximation of infinite geometric or algebraic structures by finitary objects. Cases of this general approach appear in Ramsey theory, coarse geometry, geometric group theory, the theory of operator algebras and ergodic theory.

02Asymptotic geometry of sofic groups and manifolds
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
The workshop brings together senior researchers, postdocs and graduate students who are working on bounded cohomology and related fields. For more information, see the webpage at www.mathi.uni-heidelberg.de/~aott/bc19.html.

27Invariants and boundaries of spaces
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 spaces often exhibit interesting geometry at inﬁnity. In many interesting cases they are non-compact, carry special metrics (often hyperkähler) and 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.
