Young Topologists Meeting 2018
University of Copenhagen
July 9–13, 2018
The Young Topologists Meeting is an annual event that has previously been organised by the EPFL, Switzerland; the University of Copenhagen; and jointly by Stockholm University and the Royal Institute of Technology. The YTM 2018 will take place in Copenhagen July 9–13, 2018. The meeting is intended as an opportunity for graduate students, recent PhDs, and other junior researchers in topology to meet each other and share their work. In addition to short talks by the participants, the program for the meeting will include lectures by Kathryn Mann (Brown University) and Mike Hill (UCLA).
We are pleased to announce the following mini-courses:
Multiplicative transfer maps in equivariant stable homotopy theory (Mike Hill)
Abstract: The equivariant stable homotopy category is a perpetual source of surprise and confusion for algebraic topologists. Classically, the focus has been on the surprising occurrence of the transfer when we build a category in which G-manifolds have a good notion of duality. This makes computations significantly trickier, greatly increasing the complexity of the algebraic approximations to equivariant stable homotopy. More recent work has considered
Flat bundles, foliations, and group actions on manifolds (Kathryn Mann)
Abstract: The theory of flat (or foliated)

We will be providing accommodation for a large number of participants. We have also provided travel funding from the NSF to some people from US institutions; we have emailed everyone from a US institution who applied for such funding. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer
If you require help regarding visas (e.g. a letter of invitation) then please get in contact with the organisers, explaining what you need.
We gratefully acknowledge financial support from the Centre for Symmetry and Deformation and NSF Grant DMS-1818905.
The department provides information on how to get to Copenhagen.
We will be able to cover accommodation for approximately 180 participants. The deadline for registration with accommodation was
There will be a conference dinner on Thursday 12th July. This is free of charge. Participants should have received a sign-up form (also asking about confirming accommodation) by email; please let us know if you haven't received this.
The registration form closed on the 31st of March (or the 28th of February if applying for accommodation). We have made decisions on speakers, and have emailed everyone who applied to give a talk to let them know whether or not they got a talk. Please let us know if you haven't received an email.
