3C in G

EPSRC Program Grant 3C in G

Classification, Computation, and Construction: New Methods in Geometry

Opening activity: Thu 13th – Sat 15th Oct 2016

This conference kicks off the Imperial-Cambridge-Warwick EPSRC funded 5 year Program Grant "Classification, Computation, and Construction: New Methods in Geometry" (3C in G). The meeting is primarily designed as a small-scale opening event to consolidate links between the teams and with our close collaborators.

The conference takes place at Warwick Univ. (Scarman House) from Thu 13th Oct (first lecture starting 12:00) to Sat 15th Oct (final lecture ending 13:00). The expected speakers include the 4 grant holders (Alessio Corti, Tom Coates, Mark Gross and Miles Reid), our first batch of PostDocs (Sara Filippini, Liana Heuberger, Alan Thompson plus Genival Da Silva Jr.). Additional confirmed speakers include Al Kaspzryk (Nottingham), Philip Candelas (Oxford) and Wolfram Decker (Kaiserslautern). We may invite one or two further outside collaborators.

Invited speakers and a number of outside participants will be covered by the 3C in G grant. Anyone interested in taking part should register on the Warwick MRC conference page and contact one of us for more information.

Organisers: Miles Reid <> and Alessio Corti <>
