Scottish Topology Seminar

 Sep 30 2016
 ICMS, 15 South College Street Edinburgh

This special meeting of the Scottish Topology Seminar was held in honour of Professor Andrew Ranicki and his many distinguished contributions to Scottish Topology. Andrew Ranicki has been at the University of Edinburgh since 1982, where he has been a central figure in Scottish topology and the international research community, working on high dimensional manifolds ever since. In August 2016 he retired from his Personal Chair of Algebraic Surgery at the University. 

Group photographs of the participants are now available here. A selection of photographs from the meeting and the dinner are now available here. Many thanks to Stefan Freidl for taking them.
