This workshop will bring together specialists in geometric aspects of singularity theory, those active in the field of its applications, and other researchers willing to apply singularity theory methods and techniques in their work.
The conference's main topics of interest are:
· Singularities of smooth maps and differential forms
· Topological invariants
- Singularities in differential geometry
· Subanalytic and semialgebraic sets
· Singularities of caustics and wavefronts
· Applications of singularity theory to computer vision, robotics and image analysis
· Gradient flows and applications
· Control theory and Hamiltonian systems
One of the main goals of the meeting is the diffusion of methods and techniques devised and applied by the conference speakers among a large international group of young researchers.
The organizers also wish to provide a common ground for discussions leading to an increase in the international collaboration between different research groups, and to stimulate a substantial feedback for further research by inviting several speakers involved in practical applications of their methods.

Arrangements
It is anticipated that this workshop will commence with Registration early on Monday 2 September and close mid-afternoon (around noon) on Friday 6 September. Please take these timings into account when considering your accommodation and travel plans.
Participation
- All invitations have now been sent out. If you have not received an invitation it is possible to participate in the workshop by completing this form.
Venue
The workshop will be held at 15 South College Street, Edinburgh. You may also find this map useful for the workshop. All lectures will be held in the Newhaven Lecture Theatre. The Lecture Theatre is equipped with a data projector, computer, visualiser and two blackboards. The projector and one board may be used simultaneously.
Travel
Information about travel to the UK and Edinburgh is available here.
Please note that it is your responsibility to have adequate travel insurance to cover medical and other emergencies (volcanic ash disruptions) that may occur on your trip.
A taxi directly from the airport will cost approximately 16.00 to 20.00 GBP to the city centre for a one-way journey. There is also a bus service direct from the airport to the city centre which will cost 3.50 single or 6.00 GBP return - the Airlink 100. This is a frequent service (every 10 minutes during peak times) and will bring you close to Waverley Railway Station, only a short walk to the accommodation and the workshop venue (see map in 'Venue' section above).
Lothian buses charge £1.50 for a single, £3.50 for a day ticket. Please note that the exact fare is required and no change is given.
If travelling by train, please note that Edinburgh has two railway stations - Waverley Railway Station being the main station and closest to the workshop venue at 15 South College Street. If you alight at Edinburgh Waverley, the workshop venue is an easy 10 minute walk over North and South Bridge. The second railway station is called Haymarket and is at the West End of the city centre.
UK Visas
If you are travelling from overseas you may require an entry visa. A European visa does not guarantee entry to the UK. Please use this link to the UK Visas site to find out if you need a visa and if so how to apply for one.
Accommodation
- Invited Speakers, Organisers and Scientific Advisors: accommodation will be arranged by ICMS and full details will be emailed nearer the time of the workshop.
- Other Invited Participants: please check your e-mail invitation for details. You may be asked to arrange your own accommodation. You can find suggestions of suitable local accommodation here
Contributed Talks
There may be space in the Programme for a small number of contributed talks. If you wish to be considered for a talk, please provide a title and short abstract on the application form. The Organisers will decide at a later date which contributed talks will be accepted and the number of such talks will be limited.
Poster Session
