University of Caen, February 27th -- March 2nd 2017


The school will start Monday morning and will end Thursday at noon. In view of a huge number of inscriptions we are obliged to proceed with a pre-registration form, to fill BEFORE the 15/11/2016. Selected participants will be contacted afterwards to confirm their registration. We will support the lodging only for confirmed registered student or postdoc (five nights per participant).

Exceptionally, we can afford to cover a part of travel expenses for (very few!) students. You can apply for these funds filling (also before 15/11/2016) the form HERE. For any further inquiry, please contact us at


As in previous edition, there will be ten short talks (30 min.) and a poster session devoted to student presentations (not necessarily focused on braids or their generalizations).

If you are student or postdoc and you intend to propose a talk or a poster fill the corresponding form at the moment of your pre-registration (if not simply mark "No"). A scientific committee will select a list of talks in December.

The pre-registration is now closed!
