VIII International Colloquium on Differential Geometry
Santiago de Compostela, 7-11 July 2008

E. Vidal Abascal Centennial Congress

A satellite event of the 5th European Congress of Mathematics


The Department of Geometry and Topology (Univ. of Santiago de Compostela, Spain) announces the celebration of the “VIII International Colloquium on Differential Geometry (E. Vidal Abascal Centennial Congress)”.

This new edition of the series of International Colloquia on Differential Geometry of Santiago de Compostela (Spain) is thought as a celebration of the centenary of the birth of Prof. Enrique Vidal Abascal (1908-1994), organizer of the three first Colloquia in the series, held in 1963, 1967 and 1972, and who made, with this innovator initiative, a fundamental contribution to the begining of the change of mathematical research in Spain in the second half of the XX century.

This new Colloquium will offer the participants an opportunity for the presentation of their more recent results in the framework of the two sections in which the Colloquium will be scheduled:

      Section 1: Foliation Theory

      Section 2: Riemannian Geometry

At the same time, plenary lectures will be scheduled in the charge of prestigious mathematicians who will provide a view of the “state of the art” in the most specific areas of their personal interest, always in the framework of both sections.

The conference will be held at:

     Faculty of Mathematics, University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain)
