Homotopical methods in manifold theory
University of Copenhagen
April 15-19, 2024
This masterclass aims to survey recent advances in the study of manifolds facilitated by methods in homotopy theory.
- Alexander Kupers (University of Toronto)
- Manuel Krannich (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology)
- Markus Land (University of Munich)
- Andrew Senger (Harvard University)
Topics will include embedding calculus, diffeomorphism spaces, algebraic L-theory, synthetic homotopy theory and Adams spectral sequences.
The conference/masterclass will take place at the Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Copenhagen. See detailed instructions on how to reach Copenhagen and the conference venue.
Tickets and passes for public transportation can be bought at the Copenhagen Airport and every train or metro station. You can find the DSB ticket office on your right-hand side as soon as you come out of the arrival area of the airport. DSB has an agreement with 7-Eleven, so many of their shops double as selling points for public transportation.
A journey planner in English is available.

We kindly ask the participants to arrange their own accommodation.
We recommend Hotel 9 Små Hjem, which is pleasant and inexpensive and offers rooms with a kitchen. Other inexpensive alternatives are CabInn, which has several locations in Copenhagen: the Hotel City (close to Tivoli), Hotel Scandinavia (Frederiksberg, close to the lakes), and Hotel Express (Frederiksberg) are the most convenient locations; the latter two are 2.5-3 km from the math department. Somewhat more expensive – and still recommended – options are Hotel Nora and Ibsen's Hotel.
Please fill out the application form by March 15. The deadline for applying for funding has passed.
Decisions will be communicated within a week after the deadlines.
