Sub-Riemannian Geometry and Beyond, III. A gist on Lie Groups in Pisa

Monday, May 25, 2020 (All day) to Friday, May 29, 2020 (All day)

The conference is the third meeting within prof. Le Donne's ERC project GeoMeG (Geometry of Metric Groups).

The previous editions were

Sub-Riemannian Geometry and Beyond (
Sub-Riemannian Geometry and Beyond II (

The aim of the meeting is to bring together international researchers working in various areas of mathematics with connections to subriemannian geometry or, more generally, metric geometry.

The idea for the 2020 meeting is to focus as much as possible on the following subjects:

1) large-scale geometry of nilpotent groups (and as the sub-Riemannian geometry appear as asymptotic cone)
2) Heintze groups (= homogeneous negatively curved manifolds) and their boundaries (which are nilpotent groups, possibly equipped with non-smooth distances)
3) geometry of solvable groups or, more generally, the large scale geometry of Lie groups.

The tentative list of speakers includes:
Manuel Amann (Univ. Augsburg)
Marc Burger (ETH Zürich)
Matias Carrasco Piaggio (UdelaR)
Yves Cornulier (Univ. Lyon 1)
Moon Duchin (Tufts Univ.)
Tullia Dymarz (Univ. of Wisconsin-Madison)
David Fisher (Indiana Univ.)
Misha Gromov (IHES)
David Kyed (Univ. of Southern Denmark)
Gregory Margulis (Yale University)
Nicolas Monod (EPFL)
Pierre Pansu (Univ. Paris-Sud)
Frederic Paulin (Univ. Paris-Sud)
Roman Sauer (Karlsruhe, Inst. of Technology)
Yehuda Shalom (Tel Aviv Univ.)
Xiangdong Xie (Bowling Green State Univ.)
Robert Young (New York Univ.)

Introductory courses ( for junior participants will be held from May 19th through May 23rd, 2020 at the Centro De Giorgi.
