The next edition: Winter Braids VII - Caen, 27 February - 2 March 2017

École thématique CNRS

The school is devoted to braids and their different applications and aspects. The main topic of the school is low dimensional topology, with a particular emphasis on the multiple aspects of braid groups (algebraic, geometrical, topological or algorithmic). The school is mainly aimed at young researchers. It typically offers four mini-courses, of usually three hours, introducing classical or emerging topics of low dimensional topology and its multiple ramifications.
