Young Geometric Group Theory X

The Xth Young Geometric Group Theory (YGGT) conference will take place from 26th to 30th July 2021, virtually in Newcastle.

We are unable to run the conference on location in Newcastle, so all activities will be online.

The aim of the meeting is to bring together young researchers in geometric group theory, graduate students and post-docs, to allow them to learn from one another and from senior mathematicians invited to give tutorial courses and lectures in several branches of geometric group theory.
