Short description of the event: 

The main purpose of Foliations 2012 is to stimulate the exchange of new ideas in all aspects of foliations theory and related topics. The conference is a satellite of the 6th European Congress of Mathematics (July 2--7, 2012, Kraków, Poland).

The organizers of an international conference Foliations 2012 warmly welcome all the mathematicians interested in that field to participate in our meeting. The conference is hosted by the University of Łódź, Poland and takes place in the period June 24-30, 2012. The lectures start on Monday June 25's morning and ends on Saturday June 30's noon.

The main purpose of the conference is to stimulate the exchange of new ideas in all aspects of foliations theory and related topics such as
foliations and laminations of 3-manifolds,
foliations and contact structures,
foliations and symplectic structures,
holomorphic differential forms and foliations,
rigidity of foliated structures,
dynamical systems and foliations,
characteristic classes for foliations,
classifying spaces for foliated structures,
analysis on foliated spaces,
confoliations,
Engel and Goursat structures,
groups and pseudogroups actions on manifolds,
holonomy groups and pseudogroups of foliations,
extrinsic and conformal geometry of foliated Riemannian manifolds.

We encourage young researchers and students to take part in the conference. Some financial support should be available.

Foliations 2012 is the fifth conference organized by the Chair of Geometry of the University of Łódź and personally by Paweł Walczak and his collaborators. The previous meetings were held in Łódź (1990, 2005) and Warsaw (1995, 2000). The conference is supported by the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of the University of Łódź, the Stefan Banach International Mathematical Center and the Polish National Science Center.
