GAGTA 2021

GAGTA 2021 will be held at the ICMS Edinburgh from June 7 to June 11.

GAGTA 2020 was replaced with an online "miniGAGTA". This included "prize questions"; solving a prize question by GAGTA 2021 will be rewarded with a fantastic prize! Details of the talks and a list of the prize questions can be found here.

This is the 14th installment of the international series of Geometric and Asymptotic Group Theory with Applications (GAGTA) conferences, whose history and manifesto can be found here. The conference has taken place in Asia (South Korea), Australia, several countries in Europe (Spain, Germany, France), Israel in 2019, and in the US. This will be the first UK-based GAGTA!

Registration for GAGTA2021 will open nearer the time, in 2021.
