Goethe-Universität Frankfurt, July 20-24 2020
The unifying background of the meeting will be rigid differential-geometric structures, such as conformal and projective structures. This refers both to structures locally modelled on homogeneous spaces and to their curved analogues. One topic will be applications of Cartan connections to locally homogeneous structures, their moduli spaces, and compactifications. A related topic will be conformal compactifications such as Poincare-Einstein manifolds, and analogues for other ambient geometries. Another topic will be group actions preserving such structures and their rigidity.
Organized by Andreas Cap (Universität Wien), Charles Frances (Université de Strasbourg), Karin Melnick (University of Maryland), Thomas Mettler (Goethe-Universität Frankfurt), Katharina Neusser (Masaryk University).
