Combinatorial Constructions in Topology

University of Regina, August 17-21, 2015.



This workshop is organized around some interrelated themes in algebraic and equivariant topology, such as: torus-equivariant topology and GKM theory; K-theory of toric manifolds; (rational) homotopy theory of toric spaces; arrangements of hyperplanes; rigidity problems in toric topology; symplectic aspects; configuration spaces; applications of topology in combinatorics; group actions.

The meeting is one part of the Applied Algebraic and Geometric Topology PIMS Collaborative Research Group. A central objective is to bring together researchers from PIMS-sponsored universities with participants from elsewhere in Canada and the rest of the world.


The schedule is now available. Participants can contact the organizers regarding any last-minute details.
