International young seminar on bounded cohomology and simplicial volume


This seminar aims at connecting young people working in the areas of simplicial volume, bounded cohomology and related subjects. It is also meant as an occasion for PhD students and young postdocs to give a talk on their research project or interests. Other people interested in the area are also welcome to attend.


Monday 16:00-17:30 (Central European Time).


16:00-16:15 Coffee break

16:15-17:00 Talk

17:00-17:30 Questions and discussion in small groups


The seminars are hosted in the new! Marco's UR-zoom meeting room: 948 8511 3507.

The password is the simplicial volume of a closed genus 2 surface (in letters) followed by the current year (in numbers) without spacing.
