Program Description:
This workshop will explore connections between the study of manifolds in high and low dimensions, via the comparison of phenomena and methods across dimensions and via analysing higher dimensional spaces in terms of lower-dimensional subspaces.

The first week of the workshop will consist of a summer school with three lecture series, one by Wolfgang Lück, one by Andras Stipsicz, and one by Diarmuid Crowley, Jim Davis and Kent Orr.

The second week will consist of morning research talks by invited speakers and free afternoons for collaboration and communication. The research talks will cover topics spanning developments in high and low dimensions.
