Pisa: Centro De Giorgi

This conference is the 3rd of 5 meetings organized within the ERC project GeoMeG (Geometry of Metric Groups). The previous two editions were in Jyvaskyla, Finland. The 2020 meeting will be in Pisa, Italy. It will be hosted by the Centro De Giorgi.

The general plan is to bring together international researchers working in various areas of mathematics with connections to sub-Riemannian geometry or, more generally, metric geometry. The idea for the 2020 meeting is to focus on the large-scale geometry of nilpotent groups, Heintze groups and their boundaries, and the geometry of solvable groups or, more generally, the large scale geometry of Lie groups.

Introductory courses for junior participants will be held from May 19th through May 23rd, 2020 at the Centro De Giorgi.

Organizers: Roberto Frigerio, Enrico Le Donne, Sebastiano Nicolussi Golo, Davide Vittone, Stefan Wenger.
