Autumn School on Large Scale Geometry


Large scale geometry (a.k.a. coarse geometry) is the paradigm of studying metric spaces from "far away'', neglecting all the local information and just focusing on features of the space at infinity. The aim of this school is to introduce terminology and techniques from large scale geometry and to show how they can be used in a variety of contexts. These include (but are not limited to) geometric group theory, index theory, operator algebras, (geometric) topology.

The school will feature four minicourses by leading experts in the field, each of them consisting of four 50-minutes lectures plus one exercise/discussion session. The minicourses will be aimed at a broad audience.

Young participants are also encouraged to present their research with a short talk in a "gong-talk" session.
