Aims and scope

The aim of the workshop is to discuss groups acting on trees, self-similar actions and dynamics, and (totally disconnected) locally compact groups, and the interactions of these topics. Three mini-courses will give introductions to the main topics. Several research talks will give an overview on recent developments.

There will be selected contributed talks and a poster session.

Events nearby
