Multiple Perspectives on Geometric Inequalities

Monday, June 3, 2019 (All day) to Friday, June 7, 2019 (All day)

Unexpected connections have been established between convex, metric, hyperbolic and symplectic geometries. Some of these multiple interfaces date back to the second part of 20th century, while others were only found recently.

The interaction between these four specialized fields of geometry is amazingly rich and the purpose of this conference is to bring together experts from these various horizons with the perspective of sharing ideas and developing new collaborations.
