In this 3 day workshop, we will bring experts together to encourage interaction in the study of smooth structures in analysis, physics, and logic. Several of our invited speakers will be asked to give tutorials in order to make the subject accessible to students and other new researchers.

There will be tutorials, invited talks and contributed talks, both from senior professors and from young researchers.
The tutorials (two hours each) will be aimed at graduate students and beginning researchers in the field. Invited talks (one hour each) will address current research. Finally, there will be contributed talks (30 mins each). Applications for contributed talks from students, postdoctoral fellows, women and visible minorities are encouraged.

Invited Speakers:

John Baez (UC Riverside)
Kristine Bauer (Calgary)
Thomas Ehrhard (PPS Paris)
Anders Kock (Aarhus)
Gonzalo Reyes (Montreal)
Andrew Stacey (NTNU Norway)
