Knots and Braids in Norway


13-17 May 2019

at NTNU in Trondheim

We are excited to announce a school and workshop Knots and Braids in Norway (KaBiN) to be held at NTNU Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim from May 13 to 17, 2019.


This meeting aims to bring together people with varying points of view who are interested in knots and braids. The school is aimed at Ph.D. students and will cover algebraic aspects and moduli spaces of knots. The workshop will give glimpses into current research directions. We plan for the schedule to allow ample time for discussions and collaboration among participants.
