Recent Progress on Singularity Analysis and Applications of the Mean Curvature Flow

Copenhagen Centre for Geometry & Topology (GeoTop),
University of Copenhagen,
April 29 - May 3, 2024

The event will consist of minicourses by our speakers, going in depth into their cutting edge work on the behavior of singularities under the MCF and its applications, in particular with the low entropy Schoenflies problem in mind. With the topics and time constraint in consideration the target audience will be mathematicians and students already working/studying in the field or adjacently.

Walk to Dinner 












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. More detailed information about the rooms will be posted here as the date of the masterclass is approached. 

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.

More information on the "find us" webpage.







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.

An additional option is to combine a stay at the CabInn Metro Hotel with a pass for Copenhagen public transportation (efficient and reliable). See information about tickets & prices.













Please register here no later than April 7th, 2024.
