Winter Braids XIV will be organised in 2025.

Winter Braids is an annual school 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.
