Abstract
Contemporary geometric group theory (GGT) encompasses diverse areas of mathematics and the aim of this meeting is to bring world-leading mathematicians in GGT together with doctoral students, post-docs and other young researchers, with mini-courses and open discussions on fundamental topics in the area, and plenary lectures on recent breakthroughs. This follows the format of the recent highly successful sequence of Young Geometric Group Theory (YGGT) meetings, held previously in Israel, Poland, Belgium, Germany and France. There will be 4 mini-courses and 7 plenary talks, alongside extended poster sessions.

Algebraic and Geometric Combinatorics of Reflection Groups
ID
881016
Dates
29 May 2017 - 05 Jun 2017
Location
Centre de recherches mathématiques, Universit, Canada
Abstract
This meeting will lie at the interface between algebraic and geometric combinatorial aspects of Coxeter groups and reflection groups. Reflection groups appear in very many domains of mathematics, for instance, - as symmetry groups of regular polytopes — as quotient of Artin-Tits (braid) groups — via root systems, as Weyl groups of semi-simple Lie algebras, Lie groups, algebraic groups, Kac-Moody algebras or cluster algebras and — as discrete reflection groups in geometric group theory.

Groups, Rings and the Yang-Baxter Equation
ID
867702
Dates
18 Jun 2017 - 24 Jun 2017
Location
SPA, Belgium
Abstract
The international conference focusses on recent developments in the areas of ring theory, group theory, group rings and a new algebraic structure, called braces, that recently has attracted a lot of attention because of its role in a description of set-theoretic solutions of the Yang-Baxter equation. Special emphasis is given on the relations between these areas and in particular on topics where a mixture of methods (involving these theories) has been used. Some topics of particular interest are: group rings, unit groups, (graded) rings, and also various algebraic structures used in the context of the Yang-Baxter Equation.

Groups and computation (Schupp conference)
ID
865912
Dates
26 Jun 2017 - 30 Jun 2017
Location
Hoboken, New Jersey, United States
Abstract
The conference will be held from June 26th through June 30th 2017 at the Stevens Institute of Technology. Group theory, computability and algorithms have been inextricably intertwined since the fundamental papers of Max Dehn. The basis of all undecidability results in group theory and topology is the unsolvability of the word problem for finitely presented groups. There are many close links between group theory and automata theory and logic. The asymptotic-generic point of view of geometric group theory has recently led to new ideas in computational complexity and the theory of computability. This conference will explore several aspects of these connections.

ICTS discussion meeting: Surface Group Representations and Geometric Structures
ID
881640
Dates
27 Nov 2017 - 30 Nov 2017
Location
ICTS Bangalore, India
Abstract
The focus of this discussion meeting will be geometric aspects of the representation spaces of surface groups into semi-simple Lie groups. Classical Teichmuller theory may be viewed as a starting point of the subject, and following the work of Labourie and Goldman, many exciting developments have taken place when the target group is SL(n, R). Recent work of Kapovich, Leeb and Porti have connected the subject with geometric group theory and higher rank symmetric spaces, opening up new horizons. The aim of this discussion meeting is to expose all these recent developments on the subject and to understand avenues for further directions. The program is an immediate follow up to the ICTS Advanced School: Geometry, Groups and Dynamics-2017.

Group Representation Theory and Applications
ID
832270
Dates
16 Jan 2018 - 25 May 2018
Location
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Abstract
Group Representation Theory is a central area of Algebra, with important and deep connections to areas as varied as topology, algebraic geometry, number theory, Lie theory, homological algebra, and mathematical physics. Born more than a century ago, the area still abounds with basic problems and fundamental conjectures, some of which have been open for over five decades. Very recent breakthroughs have led to the hope that some of these conjectures can finally be settled. In turn, recent results in group representation theory have helped achieve substantial progress in a vast number of applications. The goal of the program is to investigate all these deep problems and the wealth of new results and directions, to obtain major progress in the area, and to explore further applications of group representation theory to other branches of mathematics.
