This conference will be devoted to cutting-edge developments in geometric group theory. We expect that the talks will cover aspects of the following topics: CAT(0)-spaces and CAT(0)-cubical complexes, hyperbolic and relatively hyperbolic groups, automorphism groups of free groups and surface groups, self-similar groups, Coxeter groups and Artin groups, lattices in Lie groups and Kac-Moody groups, asymptotic dimension, measurable group theory, and limit groups. The following people have agreed to give one hour lectures: Jason Behrstock Martin Bridson Indira Chatterji Alexander Dranishnikov Jan Dymara Alex Eskin David Fisher Koji Fujiwara Vincent Guirardel Michael Handel Tadeusz Januszkiewicz Larsen Louder Jason Manning Dan Margalit Volodymyr Nekrashevych Denis Osin Panagiotis Papazoglou Thomas Putman Bertrand Remy Yehuda Shalom Anne Thomas Karen Vogtmann
