International conference on Geometry in the Large

dedicated to the 90th birthday of Victor Toponogov

August 16 - 20, 2021

Euler International Mathematical Institute, St. Petersburg, Russia













The conference is going to be held at the Euler Mathematical Institute on August 16 - 20, 2021.

The conference is dedicated to the 90th birthday anniversary of Victor Toponogov.

The conference was originally planned in 2020 but the pandemic changed the plans. Due to continuing travel restrictions, the format will be mixed: Those who can come participate in person and those who cannot participate through online video conferencing. If you have registered in 2020, please consider filling the registration form again in order to update the information about your plans.

The topic of the conference, Geometry in the Large, includes global Riemannian Geometry, adjacent areas, and connections to topology, group theory, dynamical systems, etc.
