Young Topologists Meeting
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 meetings are 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 programs include lectures by distinguished speakers starting from 2010.
The list below contains the location as well as the main speakers for every year the YTM took place.
