Venue: 

The conference will take place at Maresias Beach Hotel, which is located in Maresias (São Sebastião), on the coast of São Paulo state, in Brazil. Talks, accommodation and meals will all be organized in the hotel.

Short description of the event: 

This workshop, organized by the University of São Paulo (USP), will focus on the theory of geometry of Banach spaces, with emphasis on the following directions: linear theory of infinite dimensional spaces and its relations to Ramsey theory, homological theory and set theory; nonlinear theory; and operator theory.

Participants will have the opportunity to deliver a short talk.

Registration will start in early 2014. Additional scientific, practical and financial information will be given at that time.
