Higher Geometric Structures along

the Lower Rhine X


October 19 and 20, 2017




This is the tenth in a series of short workshops jointly organized by Geometry/Topology groups in Bonn, Nijmegen, and Utrecht, all situated along the Lower Rhine. The focus lies on the development and application of new structures in geometry and topology such as Lie groupoids, differentiable stacks, Lie algebroids, generalized complex geometry, topological quantum field theories, higher categories, homotopy algebraic structures, higher operads, derived categories, and related topics. The workshops are organized by Christian Blohmann (MPI Bonn), Nijmegen), Marius Crainic and Ieke Moerdijk (Utrecht University), Ioan Mărcuț and Steffen Sagave (Radboud University, Nijmegen), respectively.
