Differential Geometry in honor of Udo Simon's 80th birthday
From September 7th till September 10th 2018 we gather at the Banach Conference center in Bedlewo (Poznan, Poland) for a conference on differential geometry, devoted to celebrating the 80th birthday of Professor Udo Simon from the Technical University of Berlin. Professor Simon is an outstanding differential geometer collaborating with many geometers from all over the world. His influence has gone far beyond the impact of his publications, through his relentless efforts to promote collaboration among differential geometers, including - but far from being limited to - his synergistic activities such as organizing conferences. He is well-known for his broad knowledge, as well as his friendly and helpful attitude toward other researchers.
The lectures and posters presented during this conference will be on topics that lie in the area of Professor Simon’s interest. That includes, in particular, global Riemannian and affine differential geometry, PDEs in differential geometry, conformal geometry, and Ricci solitons. The aim is to present new results in the context of Professor Simon’s work.
This conference is possible thanks to the financial support of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
