Prerequisites: We expect that students have had courses in real analysis of several variables, know what an ordinary differential equation is, and have followed a course on curves and surfaces. More knowledge is useful, but not necessary to follow the lectures.
Hanna Neumann was an outstanding mathematician whose research has significantly influenced the development of modern group theory. Her key achievements were in combinatorial group theory, and her book ‘Varieties of Groups’ (Springer 1967) is now a recognised classic. Hanna’s academic career was closely tied to the University of Hull, where she worked from 1946 until 1958. The conference includes lectures and a number of public events. Further details will be posted on the conference webpage.
We plan to have talks by our invited speakers in the mornings, and open problem sessions, a poster session, and plenty of time for collaboration in the afternoons.

The intended audience for this summer school should be familiar with the material in Hatcher (except the appendices). This reflects our goal that the school be accessible to second and third year students with an interest in algebraic topology from any PhD granting institution. The school will be structured around a few mini-courses, which will run in an active-learning style.
