Geometric Group Theory in Campinas 2018 ICM Satellite Conference

Location: Campinas, São Paulo, Brazil

Dates: July 28th to July 31st 2018

Brief Description: The aim of this workshop is to gather a number of leading experts on topics of Geometrical, Homological, Dynamical and Combinatorial properties in Groups. The event will also be an important chance for many researchers in Brazil to interact with internationally renowned Mathematicians.

Observation: there will another Group Theory event in Cabo Frio (Rio de Janeiro) before ours (July 24th to July 27th), but our event has been planned to have no intersection with the dates of the Cabo Frio event and the main ICM conference (warning: the previous link is correct, but sometimes it has problems loading.
