Dear colleagues,

we are excited to announce a school and workshop

Knots and Braids in Norway (KaBiN)

to be held at NTNU Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim from May 13 to 17, 2019.

This meeting aims to bring together people with varying points of view who are interested in knots and braids. The school is aimed at Ph.D. students and will cover algebraic aspects and moduli spaces of knots. The workshop will give glimpses into current research directions. We plan for the schedule to allow ample time for discussions and collaboration among participants.

The school consists of two lecture series by:

Ryan Budney (University of Victoria)
Alissa Crans (Loyola Marymount University)

The current list of confirmed workshop speakers is:

Corey Bregman (Brandeis University)
Celeste Damiani (University of Leeds)
Kim Frøyshov (University of Oslo)
Richard Hepworth (University of Aberdeen) 
Victoria Lebed (Université de Caen Normandie)
Arnau Mortier (Dublin City University) 
Mark Powell (Durham University)
Arunima Ray (Max-Planck-Institut für Mathematik Bonn)
Arthur Soulié (Université de Strasbourg)

All interested to come should register via the website, indicating if they would like to contribute and if they need financial support. Priority will be given to graduate students, recent PhDs, and underrepresented minorities. Funds from the project "Pure Mathematics in Norway" of the Bergen Research Foundation with the collaboration of the Tromsø Research Foundation support this event.

The deadline is January 31, 2019. Please apply as early as possible to facilitate our planning process.

Best regards,

the organisers
