GGT Karlsruhe 2016

The conference will highlight recent advances in geometry, topology, geometric analysis and geometric group theory and aims at fostering communication between experts and young researchers as well as identifying new directions of further research in these fields.

It is part of the conference series "Geometry, Groups and Topology" held at KIT since 2011. This time it also acts as a follow-up to the first Chinese-German Workshop on Metric Riemannian Geometry, which took place at Shanghai Jiao Tong University in October 2015.
