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 courses will be given by :

Norbert A'Campo (Basel)
"Geometry of Milnor fibers"
Bill Goldman (Maryland)
          "Geometric structures on manifolds"
   Olivier Guichard (Strasbourg)       
         "Anosov Representations"

   Vladimir Matveev (Jena)       
         "Metric projective geometry"

         "Metric Moebius Geometry and Boundaries of negatively curved spaces"
   Sumio Yamada (Tokyo)     
         "Convex geometries of Teichmueller space: a comparative study"    

Besides the courses, there will be a series of specialized lectures.
