Teichmuller theory and Kleinian groups
CONNECTIONS FOR WOMEN

    Both men and women are very welcome to attend. We regret that no further funding is available.

    Information

    This is the first event of the Fall semester at MSRI, which hosts concurrent programs on Teichmuller theory and Kleinian groups and on Geometric group theory. The idea of this workshop is to create a space for mathematical interaction across different specialties in our common subject area. The talks will introduce the speakers' research themes; the workshop will also have blocks of time for open communication.

    HOW TO GET HERE: parking will be very limited, so it is recommended that you take the Hill bus (H Line) from Evans Hall on the UC Berkeley campus.

    Please register for this workshop if you plan to attend (ignoring the fields for talk title and abstract), so that we can get the quantities of coffee and food right. We will bring lunch and suggest group options for dinner.

    The organizers are Moon Duchin (mduchin@math.ucdavis.edu) and Caroline Series (cms@maths.warwick.ac.uk).
