  1. Groups acting on CAT(0) spaces

    Organizers: Ian Agol (University of California, Berkeley), Pierre-Emmanuel Caprace (Université Catholique de Louvain), Koji Fujiwara (Kyoto University), Alessandra Iozzi (ETH Zürich), LEAD Michah Sageev (Technion---Israel Institute of Technology)

    The theme of the workshop is algebraic, geometric and analytical aspects of groups that act by isometries on spaces of non-positive curvature known as CAT(0) spaces. The world of CAT(0) spaces includes classical spaces such as symmetric spaces and buildings, as well as more avant-garde arrivals, such as CAT(0) cube complex. The workshop will bring together researchers studying various aspects of such groups and spaces to discuss recent developments and chart new directions in the field.
