Geometric analysis represents one of the most active and exciting areas of mathematics. It lies at the intersection of differential geometry, analysis, partial differential equations and mathematical physics, and is having a profound impact on all these fields, leading to the resolution of many conjectures as well as stimulating important new avenues of research.

The workshop focused on three of the most active subareas, namely geometric flows, variational methods and mathematical relativity. It also covered manifolds with controlled Ricci tensor, which has seen spectacular progress over the past few years and is currently accumulating many promising links with geometric flows and a wide array of applications. This workshop brought together this field's leading researchers leaders in the field and provided first-hand access to the most current research for students. A selection of photographs of the workshop group is available here.
