This workshop on geometry and topology for lecturers is aimed for participants who are lecturers in universities/institutes and colleges in India. This will enable lecturers from institutions all over India to get acquainted with various areas of geometry and topology which are active fields of research.
Topics will include: Geometry and Topology of surfaces; Hyperbolic geometry and moduli spaces of Riemann surfaces; Minimal surfaces, maximal surfaces and solitons; Fundamental Groupoid.
The workshop will have 4 pedagogical lecture series. There will also be discussion sessions aimed at promoting research and collaborations amongst the participants. The lecturer-participants themselves will also have a chance to present papers (which could be their own too in the area). In addition, there will be small projects which may later on develop into research projects.
