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.
