About:

Classifying spaces are fundamental in algebraic topology. Given a group (finite or Lie groups, groups of automorphisms or diffeomorphisms, etc), its classifying space controls the theory in question. The topology of the classifying space tends to be incredibly rich and its structure reveals a great deal about the underlying objects.

This workshop will bring together leading experts from multiple different areas where research is driven by the need to understand classifying spaces. The purpose is to share ideas and techniques that will generate new research. The involvement of early career researchers has been embedded into the programme and further participation is encouraged. The workshop will also celebrate the contributions made by Ran Levi.

ACCOMMODATON SCAM

We are aware of a very convincing scam targeting participants in mathematical research events. These scammers may telephone or email you and tell you that they are organising accommodation in Edinburgh for you on behalf of ICMS. If you are approached by a third party (eg Business Travel Management or Expo Hotel Services (ehotelservices.org) ) asking for booking or payment details, please ignore. ICMS will never ask you for credit/debit card information.
