### Geometric Analysis meets Geometric Topology

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.

#### 04/02/2019 | Workshop, Conference

### AUSTRALIAN-GERMAN WORKSHOP ON DIFFERENTIAL GEOMETRY IN THE LARGE

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).

### Augsburg-Fribourg-Karlsruhe Riemannian Topology Meeting

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.
