Geometric Structures on Surfaces, Moduli Spaces and Dynamics






The theory of surfaces of finite or infinite types, with their geometric structures, with moduli spaces of geometric structures and with some related dynamical systems on these moduli spaces, constitutes some of the most important aspects of low-dimensional topology, geometry and dynamics. In this school, we propose a set of coordinated courses that will concentrate on several aspects of this field and which will give the students the opportunity, at the same time, to learn the basic aspects of these topics, and to have access to important research problems. A special stress will be on pedagogical aspect, and there will be exercise sessions for the students.

The target audience will consist essentially of young researchers and PhD students from India, deve- loping countries and other countries, who work in this direction or who plan to pursue their research in related areas. Special attention will be given to promote female students.
