2013 Taiwan International Conference on Geometry

Dec 16 2013 - 00:00
Dec 20 2013 - 23:59
Venue: 

National Taiwan University/Taipei/Taiwan

Short description of the event: 

This conference is of a series of biennial international conferences on Differential Geometry in Taiwan. An important area in Geometry will be specified as the main theme each time. Our purpose is to create a discussion and interaction platform in the chosen area, and at the same time to foster future co-operations and introduce new participants into the field. Some mini courses will also be arranged before the conference as a preparation. The topic for the conference in 2011 is “Special Lagrangians and Related Topics”and for 2013 conference, we will focus on “Geometry of General Relativity.”
