Workshop on Curves, Mapping Class Groups and their Applications

January 17-18, 2020

Middle East Technical University, Ankara


The aim of this workshop is to bring together mathematicians who specialize in low dimensinal topology; in particular geometrical and combinatorial aspects of mapping class groups and curves on surfaces.


Registration is needed for this workshop. Please register here by January 14th. The talks will be in Gündüz İkeda Seminar Room, Mathematics Department at METU.
