Nov 16 2012 - 17:17
Venue: 

Centre de Recerca Matemàtica, Bellaterra, Barcelona

Short description of the event: 

Automorphisms of free groups in a more than 100 years old subject which has been very active during the last decades, growing very interesting connections with many algorithmic, geometric and dynamical aspects of modern group theory. The conference will be devoted to these and related topics within the general framework of group theory.
