The main topics of the conference are: the geometry of Lie groups with left-invariant Riemannian metrics, the geometry of differential geometric structures on manifolds, small-dimensional (3-4 dim) geometry, multidimensional geometry and PDO-calculus, graphs and knot theory, integrated systems and the topology of integrable Hamiltonian systems, and homotopy classification of transitive Lie algebroids.
Additional activities will include a round table; a visit to the Lobachevsky Museum; excursions to Sviyazhsk, a world heritage site; and tours around Kazan.
Kazan is a large Russian city located on the banks of the Volga river about 800 km east of Moscow. It is one of the biggest industrial, cultural, and educational centers in Russia, with rich history and traditions. Founded in 1804, Kazan University is one of Russia’s most famous scientific and educational centers. The university is proud of outstanding mathematicians like geometricians Nikolai Lobachevsky, Pyotr Shirokov, Alexander Norden, Aleksander Shirokov, Boris Laptev, and Alexei Petrov; algebraists Nikolai Chebotarev, Vladimir Morozov, and Andrey Ado; function theorists Boris Gagaev, Fyodor Gakhov, Lyubov Chibrikova; and many others.
