Sub-Riemannian Geometry and Beyond, III

A gist on Lie groups in Pisa

This conference is the 3rd of 5 meetings organized within the ERC project GeoMeG (Geometry of Metric Groups).

The general plan is to bring together international researchers working in various areas of mathematics with connections to sub-Riemannian geometry or, more generally, metric geometry.

The previous two editions were in Jyvaskyla, Finland:

Sub-Riemannian Geometry and Beyond

Sub-Riemannian Geometry and Beyond, II

The 2020 meeting will be in Pisa, Italy. It will be hosted by the Centro De Giorgi.

The idea for the 2020 meeting is to focus on the large-scale geometry of nilpotent groups, Heintze groups and their boundaries, and the geometry of solvable groups or, more generally, the large scale geometry of Lie groups.


Introductory courses: May 19-23, 2020

Conference: May 25-29, 2020

Scientific Committee: Enrico Le Donne (Jyvaskyla & Pisa), Luigi Ambrosio (SNS), Fulvio Ricci (SNS).

Organizing Committee: Enrico Le Donne (Jyvaskyla & Pisa), with the help of Roberto Frigerio (Pisa), Sebastiano Nicolussi Golo (Padova), Davide Vittone (Padova), Stefan Wenger (Fribourg).
