The aim of the school is to offer an outline of the present state of research concerning Geometric Measure Theory on Carnot-Caratheodory groups and on more general metric spaces. Analysis and Geometry on these structure has been object of extensive reserach in the last few years, with applications ranging from degenerate elliptic equations to optimal control theory, differential geometry and harmonic analysis. It is intention of the organizers (L. Ambrosio, B. Franchi, R. Serapioni and F. Serra Cassano) to put together young and well-known researchers active in the field and to encourage informal discussion on current trends and developments in the area. The following speakers have agreed to give short courses: E. Lanconelli (Univ. Bologna), J. Manfredi (Univ. Pittsburgh), P. Mattila (Univ. Jyvaskyla), H.J. Susmann (Rutgers Univ.). Young reserachers are encouraged to partecipate: it is possible to support some of them upon request.
