Invited speakers:


This is the 13th in a series of workshops on current developments in contact and symplectic topology, which have been hosted at various locations in Europe every Winter since 2007. This year's workshop will take place in room 2094 of the main building (Hauptgebäude) of Humboldt University, at Unter den Linden 6 in Berlin. It will begin after lunch (around 2pm) on Thursday, March 7, and end around lunchtime on Saturday, March 9.

More details about the programme and advice on travel will be posted here by the end of January.

Important: If you are not applying for support from us for your accommodation, then you will need to make your own accommodation arrangements. We strongly suggest that you do this as soon as possible, as there seems to be very high demand in Berlin for at least some of the dates of our conference (due to other events happening at the same time). The conference will take place in the HU main building (Hauptgebäude) at Unter den Linden 6; it may be difficult to find accommodation within easy walking distance of that location, but something with reasonable public transportation access should be possible. The nearest U-/S-Bahn station to the HU main building is Friedrichstraße, and there are also a few bus lines that stop right in front of it (the bus stop is "Staatsoper"). For information on public transportation in Berlin, see the BVG website

Registration and support

Here is the registration form.

The deadline to apply for financial support has now passed. If you applied for support, we will notify of the outcome by mid-January.

We still welcome registrations from participants not applying for support until about two weeks before the conference.
