The focus of this Summer School will
be on the following thematic
areas: Finsler geometry, dynamics, hyperbolic geometry,
projective
geometry, systolic geometry, Teichmüller theory.

The Summer School is primarily intended for PhD students and young researchers.

The courses will be given by
:

Norbert A'Campo (University of Basel)

"Riemann surfaces"

Ivan Babenko (University of Montpellier)

"Introduction to systolic geometry"

Gilles Courtois (Ecole Polytechnique)

"The structure of fundamental groups of manifolds with curvature bounded below,

after V. Kapovitch and B. Wilking"

Daniel Massart (Montpellier)

"Intersection form and stable norms of Finsler surfaces"

Marc Troyanov (EPFL, Lausanne)

"A crash course in Finsler Geometry"

Besides the courses, there will be a series of specialized

This
Summer School is supported by the French reserach network "ANR
Géométrie de Finsler et applications" and the Department of Mathematics
of the University of the Aegean, in cooperation with the French research networks GDR "Tresses" and GDR PLATON "Géométrie, Arithmétique et Probabilités".

The Summer School will be held at the Department of Mathematics,
University of the Aegean, at Karlovassi, at the
Island of Samos (birthplace of Pythagoras), Greece.
