Orbifolds, Groupoids, and their Applications

September 11th - 15th, 2000

There will be an informal open workshop on the interplay between orbifolds and groupoids, together with the application of orbifold methods to problems in crystallography, geometric group theory and equivariant algebraic topology. The aim of the Workshop is to provide a venue for the exchange of information on different aspects of the area and to encourage collaboration across the different subject specialisms that are involved. Some time will be set aside for examination of the problems where existing techniques seem not to be adequate.

The workshop is in part to celebrate the work on groupoids, their theory and applications, by Ronnie Brown who has recently retired from a full time professorship at Bangor. It will also form part of his (belated) 65 birthday celebrations!
