Original Announcement

This workshop will be devoted to the study of geometric and topological aspects of Artin groups. Artin groups form a rich and mysterious class of groups, and can be thought of as a (vast) generalization of braid groups. They are a large source of important examples in geometric group theory, and have been studied using tools from various areas, including combinatorics, geometric topology, and nonpositively curved geometry. There has been an enormous amount of progress in the field in the past couple of years. We believe that bringing together experts on various aspects of Artin groups will lead to new approaches to resolving some of the long-standing questions.
