Walkshop "Groups in Action in Harz"

Sunday, August 28, 2011 - 8:00pm to Saturday, September 3, 2011 - 7:59pm

A "wandering conference" will take place from Tuesday, August 30 to Saturday, September 3, 2011 (arrival on Monday) in the Harz mountains. The topic is "groups in action", and covers recent developments in group theory; in particular, embeddings and actions of discrete groups in Lie groups, l^p spaces, diffeomorphism groups of manifolds, ...

The mornings are reserved for talks, and afternoons for free discussions, excursions, and (Wednesday and Thursday) hikes towards the next village. A minibus carries the whiteboards, luggage, and participants that do not wish to walk.

The conference starts in Sankt Andreasberg on Monday evening; moves to Braunlage on Wednesday afternoon; and to Schierke on Thursday afternoon. An excursion to the "Brocken" can be made on Friday
