Geometry and Topology Seminar

The Geometry and Topology Seminar at the University of Haifa meets every two weeks, with talks on a wide range of topics in algebraic, geometric, differential, and symplectic topology, and in differential and algebraic geometry, broadly understood.

The seminar takes place on Wednesday 12:10 in room 614 (tentative). For more information please contact the seminar organizer, Frol Zapolsky.
