The workshop is the 9th in the sequence of annual workshops traditionally held in the month of May at Nipissing University. This year, the main themes will be continuum theory, dynamical systems,  topological groups, and geometric topology.

Structure of workshops

The workshops will be held for five days. There will be three or four one-hour talks each day. Some of the speakers will give a series of lectures and some may give only one lecture. However, the format of the workshops is designed to maximize the interaction among the participants beyond the lectures.
