Aims and scope

The aim of the workshop is to discuss groups acting on trees, self-similar actions and dynamics, and (totally disconnected) locally compact groups, and the interactions of these topics. Three mini-courses will give introductions to the main topics. Several research talks will give an overview on recent developments.

There will be selected contributed talks from young researchers. If you would like to apply, please send a title and abstract, no later than 4th May
