Workshop on Singularities

 25 - 29 Aug 2008

Scientific Organisers:

  • Victor Goryunov, University of Liverpool

  • Dirk Siersma, Universiteit Utrecht

  • Victor Vassiliev, Steklov Institute

The purpose of the meeting was to bring together experts in geometrical and topological branches of singularity theory and in some adjacent areas where these branches find applications. The major aims of the workshop were to disseminate new results and ideas, to foster new developments within singularity theory and to look for new areas of application and interaction.
