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“.
In the first week of the program, we plan an international conference to highlight recent advances in global Riemannian and metric geometry, topology, and geometric analysis to foster communication between experts and early career researchers from Australia and abroad and identify directions to set the stage for future advances.
In the second week, we plan to hold the first Australian-German workshop on differential geometry with Australian and German geometers who participated in the conference, focussing on new problems and potential directions of future research that came up in the first week.
Organisers: Owen Dearricott ( University of Melbourne), Diarmuid Crowley (University of Melbourne), Thomas Leistner (University of Adelaide), Yuri Nikolayevsky (LaTrobe University), Wilderich Tuschmann (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology).

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

02Asymptotic geometry of sofic groups and manifolds
This 4-day workshop is addressed to graduate students and researchers in geometric analysis and differential geometry. It will mainly focus on geometric flows on smooth and singular manifolds and related topics such as Ricci solitons.

Die Mathematik der riemannschen Flächen, speziell die derjenigen vom Geschlecht mind. 2, ist außerordentlich reichhaltig. Solche Flächen besitzen hyperbolische Strukturen, d.h. Metriken mit konstanter Krümmung -1.
Wir werden tiefe Zusammenhänge zwischen analytischen Größen (Laplace-Eigenwerte), geometrischen Größen (Längen geschlossener Geodätischer) und arithmetischen Aspekten erkunden. Ein Höhepunkt wird dabei die Selberg'sche Spurformel sein, in der diese Aspekte zusammenfließen.
